A WORCESTER school took part in a host of activities centred on food as part of a global event.

Youngsters from all classes at Dines Green Primary School found out about food from around the world for Go Global week.

The Nursery children invited their parents for a traditional English tea party and enjoyed tea, cakes and some party games.

While chef Matthew Rawlings used his imagination and culinary skills to provide the children with food from Turkey, Greece, Spain, America, Poland and Thailand.

The children dined in their element groups and used the discussion cards on their tables to talk about a range of topics.

The children also listened to traditional Greek and Italian music.

Pupils in all classes had the opportunity to take part in a food treasure hunt and solve the mystery of the traditional English meal spelt out by the clues.

Classes also took part in cooking and food tasting activities and the Reception children whipped up a fantastic vegetable curry thanks to the donation of ingredients and an array of spices from parents.

As part of the event, year 5 and 6 children also visited Nando's in Worcester to find out about the company, fair trade and responsible farming.

The children had the opportunity to try grilled halloumi cheese, olives, quinoa, spicy nuts, egg custard and salted chocolate brownies.

Catherine Stitchman, from the school, said: "The children were very adventurous with trying new things and discussing what they liked and disliked.

"The children behaved brilliantly, shared their existing knowledge of the company and asked thoughtful questions.

"It was a very social event, we learned a great deal and had a fantastic time."

The school also ran a poster competition.

The school is now compiling a school ‘Scrap book’ including lots of different food experience, recipes and memories of school dinners.

Anyone who has any memories of dinner times at Dines Green Primary school, whether as a past pupil or past member of lunchtime staff, can contribute by emailing dinesgps@gmail.com

The Go Global week took place between Monday, March 6 and Friday, March 10.
