Parents and carers enjoyed some tasty treats at our international food tasting event last Thursday. Attendees were served a range of yummy dishes prepared by our creative pupils.
This term, each class is studying a different country, as well as making some of their most famous cuisine. Our year 4s have been learning about China and made delicious noodles, meanwhile our year 5s whipped up a selection of mouth-watering Vietnamese spring rolls. Cooking was not the only activity going on; our reception children also had fun painting with spices!
The international food tasting event was just one part of this term’s broad international focus. Our children have been involved in a wide range of eye-opening activities about their class’ designated country. For example, year 5 have been learning about Vietnam, and are studying Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai, a book about the author’s experience living in 1970s USA as a child refugee of the Vietnam War.
At Rodbourne Cheney Primary School, we think it’s important for our children to learn about the world beyond their immediate surroundings, to hear about people’s lives, and to understand experiences different to what they are accustomed to.
We hope that those who attended the international food tasting event had as much fun as we had hosting it. We’d like to thank all the staff who helped our children cook safely and for continuing to give them a wider understanding of the world.
