A virtual event for Key stage one and EYFS staff in partnership with Leeds University. Find out about a new sensory food education programme! The Health and Wellbeing Service at Leeds City Council are delighted to work in partnership with Flavour School and Leeds University to bring you this innovative and interactive online event. Flavour School is a programme of sensory food education lessons for children. The programme is designed for EYFS 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.
