Choosing our meals

Today all the P7s worked in groups to decide the meals they would like to make for the food project.

Each group came up with ideas and then the children voted for their favourites.

We have decided to cook:

  • Chicken nuggets
  • Macaroni cheese
  • Pasties
  • Fajitas
  • Burgers

HOMEWORK:  For next week, each group has a recipe that they have to source for one of these foods.  They can print it, write it or save it to their Google drive/email.  They should be healthy and able to feed a family of 4 for a budget of not more than £6 per meal.

 

P7 Pizza and STEM Visit

The P7 children had a wonderful time yesterday visiting Pizza Express and the STEM Skills base.  They learnt about the various ingredients that go into pizzas, where they come from and how they are used.  They then had the chance to try some of these, knead their own dough, add Passata sauce and cheese before it was baked in the pizza ovens.  Everyone got a pizza to take away – many were enjoyed for lunch while some chose to take home and share with family.

After this, the children took part in two workshops at the STEM hub in Church Street.  Firstly, they used the online TinkerCAD programme to design food based items that could be created in the 3D printer.  Then, they had to work in teams to programme and engineer a robot to open a lego fridge and push food into it.  This was challenging but, it was super to see the children using their problem solving and creativity skills to explore how they could move the robot and achieve the task.

Photos will be added once all pupil update forms have been received.  If we are still awaiting yours, please could you send in as soon as possible.  Many thanks.

Food Hygiene Training 28.8.18

Today the P7 children began their learning around food with a session from Patrick McCaffetry, Food Compliance Officer.  They learnt all about hand washing, cleanliness and how to prevent bugs and bacteria causing illness when preparing food.  They also did some learning in Science around pathogens and bacteria and how they grow.

What can they tell you from what they remember?
