Trust helping pupils at Hull primary to cook up a healthy lifestyle

Primary School Pupils cooking Classes


Primary school children in Hull will soon be learning how to prepare and cook a healthy meal safely as part of a new project which has received the backing of the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust.

The Friends of Ings Primary School group, in east Hull, successfully applied for £1,000 to buy equipment for a new cookery room at the school, which will be used to teach children the art of cooking.

The equipment will also be used for an after school club, allowing 12 youngsters to prepare their culinary delights at each session.

It is hoped youngsters will pass on their new-found skills to their families, promoting healthy eating at home as well as at school. They will also learn about hygiene whist cooking food, as well as knife skills to prepare food safely.

Lyn Whitford, a teaching assistant at the school, said the new facilities and equipment will make a positive difference to the youngsters’ education.

She said: “We were over the moon when we were told about our application being successful, and we are so grateful.

“We’ve been able to fit out our cookery room with new equipment. It has been re-wired, new windows have been put in and we have bought ovens, a hob, cleaning utensils and an extractor fan.

“This project is going to teach an important life skill to our children, with healthy eating a key focus too. It will help their maths, English and science across the curriculum.

“Weighing and measuring helps their maths, using instructions and verbs fits in for English, and changing state, such as frying an egg, is science. It will also help the children to improve their social skills as they will work together in teams.”

Ings Primary School, which has 282 pupils, supports the Open Futures initiative, a curriculum development programme run in schools to link learning with life.

It was developed to help children discover and develop practical skills, personal interests and values, which will contribute to their education and help enhance their adult lives.

One part of the curriculum is called ‘Cookit’, which links in with the grant from the Trust and the school’s desire to enhance the cookery learning environment for the children.

Lyn, who is the school’s ‘Cookit’ Champion, said practical lessons, rather than theory-based learning, often have a greater impact on youngsters.

She said: “A lot of children learn better doing something practical and ultimately they understand it better. We have a healthy kitchen at school and a healthy tuck shop with cereal bars and yoghurts. It’s

very important that we continue to emphasise that health living message.”

Staff at Ings Primary School are planning an official opening event for invited guests on November 6.

Lyn added: “The school is going to be 50-years-old at the same time and we want to make it a big event. We are hoping to invite a chef to come and officially open it and work with the children too. It will be quite a special day for the school.”

The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust invites groups and projects across Yorkshire, which are making a positive impact in their communities, to apply for grants of up to £2,500, with a total of £100,000 available over a 12-month period.

Jo Hudgell, chair of the Trust, said: “It is vital children grow up with a sound knowledge of healthy eating, and an understanding of hygienic food preparation. This cookery room will ensure children have this, whilst also helping them in many areas of their day-to-day learning.

“We have been delighted to support this project and we are sure it will benefit youngsters who attend the school for many years to come.”
