North Worcester Primary Academy Cooking Class
Last week, a number of pupils at North Worcester Primary Academy took part in a very special cooking class delivered by Steph Harrison from 'How to Cook'. The Year 1 pupils learnt what it means to be a chef and the importance of wearing an apron and hat.
The budding chefs started off by preparing a variety of vegetables for their seven vegetable curry. This included learning how to wash, chop and follow step by step instructions. During the class, Steph talked about safety and demonstrated different chopping techniques to the pupils, such as the bridge hold and the claw grip. The class then went on to measure the ingredients in order to make the flat bread and learnt how to knead the dough. Finally, they all worked collaboratively to cook their healthy and delicious meal to taste and take home for their families
The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and were extremely proud of their accomplishments. Alexis in Year 1 said, "I loved being the big chef!". Staff highlighted that the class was highly beneifical and a multitude of lifelong skills were learnt.
