The heat was on at Moor End Academy for almost 40 students.
Especially as they took part in a world record cooking attempt with celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver.
The year eight pupils joined more than 237,822 kids from 121 countries in school kitchens around the world in a bid to beat the previous achievement of the most participants taking part in a cookery lesson in 24 hours.
With graters, knives and chopping boards at the ready, they worked together to whisk up tasty rainbow salad wraps alongside teachers, Christine Stead and Emily Betke and the cockney cook, who gave them a lesson via a live video link.
Dubbed International Food Revolution Day, it was organised to get kids excited about food and to teach them where food comes from and how it affects their bodies.
Although falling short of Mr Oliver’s target of one million participants, they served up nutritious and colourful lunches that included carrots, beetroot, cabbage, pear, feta cheese and a tart dressing.
Each student received a certificate to show that they had been a part of the world record attempt and had their names immortalised on a dedicated website to highlight their efforts.
A school spokesperson said: “It was an excellent initiative to get the whole world cooking healthily and it felt great to take part in something with people from around the world.
“The kids were really excited and everyone had a go at tasting and making.
“Healthy eating is something we take very seriously at the school so its great that Jamie organised this event to champion that.”
