An exciting event for both staff and pupils together. Find out about a new sensory food education programme for Key Stage 1 and Reception and take learning back to your school curriculum.

We are delighted to work in partnership with the Flavour School and Leeds University to bring you this innovative event. This event is for up to two members of staff from one school with 2 pupils per staff member.

Flavour School is a programme of sensory food education lessons for children. The programme is designed for Reception and Key Stage 1, but the programme can be adapted for all age groups (including pre-school), settings (e.g. after-school clubs) and abilities. It can be delivered using minimal resources.

Flavour School is all about exploring food and flavour through the five senses: sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste. The programme provides fun and simple ways for children to learn about each of their senses and how they affect our eating experiences. It also helps children to develop vocabulary to express their experiences and preferences.

Details

We invite members of school staff from Key Stage 1 and Foundation to bring two pupils along to be part of this event and find out how to deliver the Flavour School curriculum first hand. You will have the opportunity to experience a sample of the lessons and accompanying activities to increase children’s curiosity, confidence and willingness to try new foods.

The ultimate goal is to empower children to have a positive relationship with food and eating. The focus is on helping children to better understand their eating experiences, and to approach new foods on their own terms, so they can be more confident and discerning eaters, and more willing to explore and enjoy a wider range of foods and flavours.

Teaching staff will also be invited to attend a short zoom meeting prior to the event to cover the theory and background of the programme.

Outcome

This event will include learning and workshops on the following topics (subject to change):
• An introduction to flavour school as a programme,
• How to deliver flavour school in the curriculum,
• Increase pupils confidence, curiosity and willingness to try new foods,
• Understand basic food safety when delivering lessons,
• An opportunity to test of delivery of the activities with your pupils,
• Learn how flavour school can link and support other areas of school life such as school meals,
• Gain confidence with using the resource pack.
