As part of our cooking and nutrition curriculum we continued to build our knowledge of what we need to eat to stay healthy. We discussed the three different types of carbohydrates and know that humans get energy from carbohydrates.
To develop our LIFE SKILLS we used measured out our own ingredients. To do this we used a range of measuring equipment and worked together to apply our maths skills to read scales in grams and millilitres. We also set the oven temperature and used a timer and clock to know when our delicious dish was ready.
Cooking macaroni cheese meant that we were able to practise:
- Looking for bubbles when boiling water
- Tucking in our knuckles when grating the cheese!
- Making a roux and watching what happens when you add cheese to the butter and flour.
- Baking in the oven.
- Eating together in a community.
Throughout the session we made certain that we kept safe and followed high levels of hygiene (hand washing, hair back, aprons etc.)
Our cooking session and end results can be seen below.
