The children of Cavalry Primary School in March celebrated harvest by making pizza on Friday afternoon.

Each class contributed an ingredient to two large pizzas which were assembled at the front of the hall by four budding chefs.

The children looked at where the ingredients had come from and worked out how many miles the food had travelled to reach March. They also located each country on a giant map and pinned flags for each food.

The Cavalry pizza ingredients had travelled 23,000 miles and came from six different countries. At the end of the assembly the pizzas were baked and eaten by some very excited children in after-school club.

The children thought about how lucky they are to have such wonderful food to eat and had all brought in groceries for the March Foodbank as a way of saying thank you for their own food. A giant display was set up in the hall during the assembly and was then sent off to the foodbank for distribution to March families.
