Linking with the curriculum

The Big Lunch links nicely with many elements of the curriculum and school life, including community events, cooking and healthy eating, wellbeing and mental health, citizenship and antibullying.

The Big Lunch lesson plans

The Big Lunch takes place annually in June, but these resources can be used any time and linked to school or community events all year round!

The greenest Big Lunch challenge

Download our lesson plan

This year, we’re working with WWF-UK on ideas to make this year’s Big Lunch the greenest yet. To help schools get involved, our education teams have created a simple lesson plan for key stage two to get pupils thinking about what ‘greener’ might look like. Designed to cover several areas of the KS2 Citizenship curriculum, this lively lesson plan will teach pupils about some of the simple actions we can all take to make sustainable food choices.

It’s a perfect compliment to our live lesson from the Eden Project rainforest, which explores where our food comes from and why it’s so important!
