Skills for life!
Our Let's Get Cooking unit is based upon the Key Stage 2 Design and Technology program of study.
The children investigate, evaluate and design various foods and recipes and are encouraged to be as independent as possible in making meals for themselves.
There is a requirement that the children make predominantly savoury dishes and have a good understanding of the food groups, healthy options, convenience cooking and seasonal foods. So far we have tested, evaluated and made potato cakes (with various toppings), pizza, autumn fruit crumble, spaghetti bolognaise and a lunchtime menu.
As with all CLASP subjects, the groups are small so there's lots of teacher time.
