Wrap it all up!

On the 25th of February, the year 6 class had a cooking session in our school food lab.  All the students prepared their own wraps which were filled with a healthy filling mainly tuna, eggs, cheese, olives, capers, and tomato ketchup. When the filling was ready it was put on the wrap and the teacher showed the students how to close the wrap properly. Then the wraps were grilled and eaten by the students themselves!! It was a positive experience as the children were really motivated and eager to cook their own food.  After the activity the children put away and cleaned everything themselves.  This helps them to become more responsible.

Let’s cook some pasta!

On Tuesday 11th February, the Year 2 class had a cooking session in the Food Lab.  There was an introduction about the importance of calcium in our diet, found in dairy products like milk and cheese.  Then the children worked out a handout.  the children ate pasta with white sauce.  Butterfly shaped pasta was used, since it is a favourite shape with children.  The children helped with mixing the sauce with the pasta.

All the children ate heartily, some even asking for a second helping.  Besides being delicious and satisfying, pasta is a great source of energy.

Whilst waiting for them to come out of the oven, they free painted the eyes, mouth and buttons of an already sponge painted print of a gingerbread man that they had prepared the day before.

The other activity they finished was a collage of the gingerbread man.

Before going home they were given the three biscuits each to be eaten at home. The school surely smelt lovely and the delight and enthusiasm of the children could not go unnoticed!

All the children had a rectangular tramezzina each apart from that they also had three different shape cutters, a square, a triangle and a circle. After cutting the shapes, the children spread the jam on the different shapes.
