Year 6 cook up a storm!

Recently, Year Six pupils tested their culinary skills when they planned and prepared nutritious and delicious meals that could be used in an emergency-aid box for those affected by natural disasters around the world. This tied into the current topic theme in the year group entitled ‘Weird and Wondrous Weather.’

The children thought carefully about which ingredients would be both practical and nutritionally-balanced. As a result, they chose rice as the staple around which a meal could be produced. They recognised that rice is an excellent source of slow-release carbohydrate (which would be more filling over a longer period) but they also suggested that it would require seasoning and additional flavouring in order to be appealing to people. Consequently, a variety of spices were mixed into the dish.

When it came to tasting time and an evaluation of their efforts, some children were quick to recognise that they’d been over-zealous with the chilli powder! However, others felt their own was still too bland and that if they had the opportunity to repeat the process, they would add another pinch in order to pack more punch!
