Charles Dickens Primary School is partnering with Mercato Metropolitano, the community market in Elephant and Castle, who will be giving free cookery classes to all children from Reception to Year 6. The classes will teach the children how to prepare simple, nutritious dishes, provide cookery skills and help grow confidence in the kitchen. The classes have already started with years 2,3 and 4 and will be running through to the summer term.
These classes have been a huge success so far with children excitedly trying new foods, learning about the difference between shop bought sauce and sauce cooked from scratch, even staff members are now regularly making pasta at home using the recipe they learned.
Children were all awarded a certificate of participation with a recipe on the back.
Mercato Metropolitano would like to hear from parents. Please complete the survey so we can continue to benefit from this partnership: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YVB8HF2
