Pupils and parents are to continue making culinary delights at a village school after the future of a cooking club was secured for another year.
As three years of lottery funding for Barningham Primary’s weekly ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ club nears its end, the school has raised £600 to help keep the dishes simmering.
The club allows children to work with family members on a variety of recipes including rhubarb crumbles, blackberry strudels and chicken stir fries. The latest to grace the menu last week was a cobbler and lemon meringue.
School cook and club co-ordinator Julie Chapman said: “The children absolutely love it. They’re learning a lot more than just cooking including maths. We want to encourage the children to cook at home so they know what’s going into their food.”
The main fund-raiser for the club is a food fete, which the school runs on the last Saturday of September.
n Artwork by Stowmarket High students - inspired by a visit to the Museum of East Anglian Life - is being exhibited at the venue. The photography, large scale drawings, paintings, printmaking, textiles and small sculptures were created by the A-level pupils after they attended a ‘Kids in Museums Takeover Day’ in November. The exhibition runs to June.
n More than 70 pupils from Barrow and Risby Primary Schools descended on Culford Pre-Prep for an Inter School Sports Day.
Playing in mixed teams, they enjoyed football, tag rugby, cricket, athletics and hockey led by international hockey player and Beijing Olympian Stephen Dick.
