COOKING

What can children learn through cooking? Cooking with children can provide many beneficial learning experiences. Whilst the kitchen can provide many opportunities for young children to learn, it can be a dangerous place if children are left unsupervised while they cook. Before beginning it is worth remembering a few safety tips.

  • Collect everything you need before hand so you don’t need to leave your child unsupervised.
  • Encourage children to wash their hands before cooking.
  • Use only oven recipes rather the grill or rings on the hob.
  • When teaching your child to cut, use a blunt knife and soft foods. Any cutting requiring a sharp knife should be done by an adult. Explain the dangers of using knives. Restrict the use of sharp kitchen tools such as graters and peelers to older children.
  • Point out heat sources and precautions that you take such as using oven gloves when removing things from the oven. Never use dangerous equipment such as a deep fat fryer.
  • Set up a safe place where your child can work.
  • Remember that raw meat or raw eggs should not be tasted.

SPRING 2

NUMBER DAY


Today, Year 5/6 took part in a STEM project for Number Day. We had to design a pizza product and work out the quantities of ingredients needed by adapting the original recipe(converting between metric units). We then made the pizzas based on our own group’s individual design. On Monday, we will evaluate our final product and work out our profit margins.



CHINESE NEW YEAR


Our class celebrated Chinese New Year by learning the dragon and lion dances. We created our own dragon using oil pastels to design our own handprints. We also carefully painted our own individual plate.


AMAZON TRIP


Year 5/6 visited the Amazon Fulfilment Centre and learnt how technology is used to advance their business. We took part in our own STEM activity and had to work as part of a team to pick, pack and ship orders efficiently. We also made our own designs which we thought Amazon could use in future.
