Food Glorious Food!Posted on: 21/04/2020
What did you have for lunch today? Where did your food come from?
Find a healthy recipe to follow or invent your own!
Always ask for permission from your parent or carer before cooking. Cooking is lots of fun but we must always remember to be careful and safe in our kitchens. Follow your adult’s rules carefully. Here are some reminders:
Have a go at growing your own ingredients!

Literacy Kitchen Challenge:
Look closely at the format of recipe texts. Notice how the instructions have been written and formatted. See how many imperative verbs (bossy verbs!) you can spot in recipe books at home.
Maths Kitchen Challenge:
Cooking and working in the kitchen provides fantastic opportunities to develop your Maths skills: using kitchen scales to measure out ingredients, converting units of measure, counting out quantities and even laying the table!
If you find or invent a tasty recipe, please email it to school – your teachers and TAs would love to try out your recipes in their homes! Thank you!
