Does your school struggle to offer regular practical cookery lessons? Would you like to give your pupils the chance to build their cookery skills?
As an initiative to support primary schools and enable them to provide practical cookery classes for children we have launched ‘Belling Cookery Club’.
We are offering you the chance to win £2,000 of Belling cooking appliances for your school and to become a Belling Cookery Club. Two winning schools will receive the appliances of their choice direct from Belling, along with some fun cooking accessories for the children to use.
With cooking and nutrition now forming part of the curriculum across the UK but only an estimated 25% of primary schools having a teaching kitchen, it is believed that the majority of Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils don’t receive practical cookery experiences.
Now Belling, which has been at the heart of British cooking for more than a century, is hoping to change that and to help the next generation embrace a love of cooking.
As part of a cooking and nutrition lesson, schools are asked to get pupils to produce a picture of their favourite nutritionally balanced meal, along with a description of why they like it so much and why it’s good for them.
Pupils can work on the entry individually or as a class, and each school will be asked to select a single entry to be sent to Belling alongside a brief explanation from a member of teaching staff about the school’s existing facilities and what winning the prize would enable them to do.
The Belling Cookery Club competition is open to all primary schools.
A shortlist of ten schools will be selected. A public vote on the Belling website will then take place with winners announced in January 2018.
Entry is now closed. Come back soon for details on our shortlisted schools and the chance to vote.
