Lunchtime is an important, social time in school. All of our children have lunch together in the hall. Classes 1 and 2 start their lunch at 12pm and have a head start (because they are younger) before they are joined by Classes 3 and 4 at 12.15pm. Many have school lunches, cooked on-site by our caterers; Hampshire Catering (HC3S), whilst others have sandwiches. They are all mixed up together so they can enjoy social chat and interactions before going outside to play.
Table Manners and Role Models
We expect our children to use good table manners when eating. Our oldest children are great role models to our youngest ones - nothing helps a child learn better than another child! Our Year 6 children in particular will sit with their Year R buddies and role model using a knife and fork and eating politely. Of course our lunchtime staff are also there to help.
Cooked Lunch Choices
The menus for cooked lunches from HC3S change seasonally through the year. Here are the current menus. Current families will have already received a paper copy but they are useful to refer to:
In addition to this menu, HC3S also offer jacket potatoes, with a choice of fillings, as selected by our school council after they consulted the rest of the school:
Monday: Vegetarian sausages and beans
Tuesday: Baked Beans and cheese
Wednesday: Beef Bolognaise
Thursday: Ham and cheese
Friday: Tuna and mayonnaise
