Reception experiment

Well yesterdays school dinner at Poplar was very tasty. The reception children are currently enjoying a whole week of free school dinners as part of an experiment to increase uptake. Will be interested to see how many of the children go on to have them next week.

The majority of the children seemed to enjoy the food but I had forgotten what slow eaters very young children are. Some were very distracted by the noise of the older kids and the crashes and bangs from the kitchen. A couple of year 2 kids were concerned that I was only eating my dinner in the hall because I was no longer allowed in the staff room! Wonder what they thought I had done to get banned?!

Must remember to take my camera to school next week then I can post a pic of the dinner on my blog!

Update 14th October:
50% of reception children are now eating a school meal each day!
