Our Year 5 Master-Chefs!
In their Design and Technology lesson today, our Year 5 children learned about food hygiene and safety in the kitchen.
They explored seasonal food and which food grows in the different seasons in the UK.
The children then thought about the steps that are needed to prepare and cook a savoury meal. The children followed a recipe for making cheese scones and made a salad to accompany it using lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and carrots.
They used the skills of cutting, slicing, dicing and grating. The children also used some maths knowledge from using grams in the recipe, reading the weighing scale and halving and quartering the salad ingredients.
The children really enjoyed the afternoon and were very proud of the tasty food they made.
