At Fusion we have a self service dinner time. Children lay their own tables, ensuring they each have a cup, plate, jug of fresh water and cutlery is laid correctly and this is teaching them valuable life skills that they can replicate at home!
The catering team put all the food on the tables in different dishes/bowls and the children dish their own food up. This gives them independence as they are able to decide for themselves the quantity of each food and they can keep having seconds, thirds and even fourths! A member of staff is sat with each table to help serve if needed and talk to the children about their day. This is a lovely social way of eating and children like chatting, helping and serving each other.
