Lyle's Golden Syrup moves from the can to the Web

| Filed in:
Lyle's Golden Syrup has sponsored a new website for kids which combines the hugely popular Lyle's Junior Cooks' Club, fronted by TV chef Gary Rhodes, with exciting educational resources for Key Stage 2 (7-11) pupils and their teachers.

Split into two distinct areas, is both a cookery website for kids to use at home and an educational resource with interactive games that have been designed by experts to inspire interest and enthusiasm in kids. The site contains over 50 free and ready to use activities for Literacy, Numeracy and ICT (Information Communications Technology), all based on food and recipes and fully referenced to Curriculum 2000 and the National Strategies for Literacy and Numeracy. Additionally, new materials will be added each term to create a growing archive of free material.

Gary Rhodes, father of two, is passionate about the new website, particularly the online version of the cooks' club. "Our Lyle's Junior Cooks' Club is only a year old and already has nearly 12,000 members. With cooking no longer a compulsory part of the National Curriculum at primary school level, many children could miss out completely on learning to cook. We want to ensure that this doesn't happen," says Gary.

"Our Lyle's Junior Cooks' Club is free to join and a great way to get children interested and involved in cooking. Members receive a newsletter every term and are encouraged to send in their own recipe ideas. Now we've taken the Club on-line and so that kids have access to recipes and cooking advice any time they need it. We know that kids love using the internet, and now they'll be able to use our site for cooking, education and fun."

The site is also perfect for parents who want to help their children with schoolwork at home, because kids can access and practice activities they have been learning during their ICT sessions at school.

Win equipment for your school The new site also features a national competition inviting schools to design an innovative menu for a three course meal and win thousands of pounds of computer equipment for their schools.

Open to primary schools nationwide, the competition is free to enter and encourages pupils to learn about nutrition and carefully balanced diets and will be judged by a prestigious panel - including Gary Rhodes. is part of Tate & Lyle's on-going commitment to education.
