Food to Flourish Classroom

Food to flourish resources

Our free resources help teachers to deliver their teaching goals. Linked to food and sustainability, the Food to Flourish Classroom is a useful tool that can be used across the curriculum with particular emphasis on literacy and maths.

Food to Flourish resources are free for teachers at any school where HC3S provide catering services.

Foundation

With dot to dot games to help children count to ten and pictorial games to help them know their colours and shapes, our worksheets, games and activities are a useful start to learning at school. The worksheets, activities and learning games cover English, maths and science. They feature our mascot, Zac.

Key Stage 1

Our KS1 worksheets, activities and learning games are a fun way to engage with your KS1 pupils. By exploring phonics and food homophones, our literacy learning tools can help you support your class as they learn to read and write.

Other resources can be used to teach your class which foods are smaller or larger than others, or which food shape is which. We also have a range of fun food chain resources - perfect for getting young learners to think about where their food comes from.

Download samples below, or get in touch to request the full set of Key Stage 1 resources.

Key Stage 2

Free worksheets, activities and learning games for KS2, including English, maths and science.

From persuasive writing tasks for the older years to activities focused on symmetry and shape for the younger years, there’s a range of resources that work for you and your students.

Make learning about healthy eating fun for your pupils with our healthy food word search. Pair this with the the unhealthy food word search to show pupils the differences. You could even use these during a cookery club while you are waiting for your cakes to bake.

Help pupils learn more about food chains with our "Where are all the fish?" resource.
