Barkingside school used as location for CBeebies children’s show

Young television viewers may notice familiar sights in a children’s television show that was filmed in Barkingside.

Fullwood Primary School, in Burford Close, was the location for two episodes of CBeebies’ I Can Cook – On The Go.

Crews filmed the programme for little chefs in August on the school’s field, in the courtyard and using some of the classrooms.

The series tours around the country helping children create healthy snacks with songs and games.

Fullwood Primary School features in next Monday’s episode making fruit fingers and next Friday’s episode featuring a fruit drink and mini sports day.

Penny Martin, associate headteacher, said: “It’s nice that our lovely grounds should be featured on the telly.

“I’m sure people who know the area will recognise it.”
