PUPILS from Spilsby Primary School have been enjoying a series of cookery lessons at the King Edward VI College as part of plans to promote home-cooking skills and healthy eating.

King Edward’s food technology teacher, Mrs Nobuhle Dude, guided the Spilsby year six pupils through the cookery process, teaching them about the ingredients used and the key methods involved.

 The KS1 and KS2 pupils will learn a new skill each week throughout the 12 weeks of lessons, developing an understanding of fresh ingredients and how to cook healthy meals from scratch.

Margaret Reeve, Headteacher at King Edward VI Humanities College, said: “We very much enjoy the Spilsby pupils’ visits and have had a really positive response from all involved.

“Creating strong community links is something that is very important to us at King Edward VI and it’s great to have the opportunity to work closely with the primary school pupils, as well as teaching them some important lessons in nutrition.

“We hope to continue to further develop our links with Spilsby Primary School in the future.”
