Farmhouse Breakfast Week at the Showground 10 Feb

In January the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society education team hosted Farmhouse Breakfast Week with schools from across the county.

The engaging and hands-on programme was held virtually to allow 225 children to get involved and try something new. The education team put together a programme of ‘farm-to-fork’ activities and video cookery sessions as well as delivering resource boxes to schools with locally sourced ingredients, a teacher’s guide, instructions and worksheets.

The education team would normally welcome a number of schools to the Lincolnshire Showground in January for a morning programme of interactive workshops and cookery sessions, however they were unable to do that this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. The team were determined that the event would go ahead on a virtual platform, which allowed schools to access the provision and learning resources in the classroom and through remote learning platforms.

The virtual workshops included engaging and practical activities including how to make a tasty omelette and oat pancakes, learn all about pig farming, butter making and how to make bacon and cheese muffins.

Schools had the opportunity to connect directly with the education team through a live video call for an introductory session and to ask any questions.

Bishop King CE Primary School said "Bishop King pupils thoroughly enjoyed this event and having the virtual introduction was a positive start to the morning session. We had great fun though and the children were keen to take copies of the recipes to make at home."
