Food, Cooking & Hygiene
At Poppleton Road we love to cook! We aim to cook at least once every term and make sure it's as healthy as possible. Children learn various safe techniques to chop, peel and mix ingredients as well as understanding what is healthy and where foods come from. We even have our own allotment that we are currently cultivating so that we can cook with what we grow!
An important part of cooking is food hygiene and we make sure that our children learn how important hygiene is when it comes to every day life and cooking and preparing food!
We have also started to include food to try and understand scientific processes as well as trying to link it with other subjects e.g. Topic, Art and STEM! It's not just about cooking with it!
