Food For Life at William Morris

Yummies Enterprise

Yummies is a child initiated project run by ‘The Voice’ team at William Morris Primary School. Children chose the name Yummies from a list of options provided and opted to include the tagline ‘See It, Buy It, Snack It’, which links in with our school motto of ‘See It, Believe It, Achieve It’.
