By the end of Year 6, we want our children to be able to follow a recipe and prepare home-cooked family meals with confidence. Learning how to prepare healthy meals is an important skill in life, and the earlier children start the better. By acquiring this invaluable skill, children can also gain an understanding of the importance of a healthy and balanced diet, cooking with seasonal fruit and vegetables.
They will be taught a variety of cooking skills as well as learning about food hygiene and safety.
How we cook food is almost as important as what we cook so the children will be taught a variety of processes including stir-frying, grilling, poaching, baking and roasting.
Our Cookery Club is open to Year 6 only, however, due to popular demand, Cooking with Kids will return to all year groups in the Spring and Summer Terms!
We meet on a Monday 3.15 - 5pm and we walk to LECA so that we can use their brand new Food Tech room where they have all the up-to-date equipment! The children pay £2 which pays for the ingredients, however they then have the opportunity to take their food home to share with their family.
