In food technology, every year group experiences a range of cooking activities during the year, in a designated, fully equipped child friendly kitchen. All the recipes that are made are linked in some way to what they have been learning class. For example Year 4 were learning about China in class and they were cooking Chinese for that term.
Each Cooking lesson normally takes about 45 to 50 minutes for key stage 2 and for key stage 1 it can range from 30 to 50 minutes depending on the dish. Only year 1 to 6 cook and the skills progression develops to more complicated recipes and cooking techniques.
Our pupils at Wentworth leave the school with a good understanding of healthy eating and safe handling of equipment and foods.
