Cooking and the curriculum
At Westhouses we link cooking to different topics so children continue to cook throughout their whole time at school.
|Explorers||'Rainbow Recipes' - Children create a colourful creations e.g. fruit salad or pizza.||'Festivals' - Children make pancakes in line with pancake day and write instructions on how to do this.||Warburtons workshop - the children learn about where bread comes from and how to make it.|
|Philosophers||'Scrumdiddlyumptious' - Children cook a quiche using local and seasonal produce. This is followed by a workshop link to fairtrade food.||
'Bronze age and Iron age' - Children cook bread/oat cakes.
|Warburtons workshop - the children learn about where bread comes from and how to make it.|
|Trailblazers||'Hola Mexico' - Children chose, design and cook a range of Mexican dishes and invite parents in to share them.||
Children learn about rations and take part in 'Dig for Victory' where they grow their own food and create War inspired meals.

Lessons linked directly to cooking
Each year our class teachers chose one recipe to make with their class. This recipe has to include at least one thing the class has grown in school. Children then get to take their creations home to enjoy with the whole family.
Why not try making them at home? Check out all our children friendly recipes below.
