Grasshoppers, crickets and scorpions were on the menu at Magdalen College School, Brackley this week.
Pupils got the chance to taste a variety of creepy crawlies brought to school by maths teacher John Sam who used the Crunchy Critters as a novel experience at his Tuesday lunchtime faith club, Emulate, run with Brackley’s Baptist Church and youth workers from The Source church.
“They were quite nice – very salty,” said 11-year-old Emily Agyeman (pictured), who tried various critters including crickets and cockroaches.
“My favourites were the mealworms. If you close your eyes, eating them is much easier!”
