Cooking is an important part of the curriculum at Kay Rowe. This term we have been modelling measurement, cutting, rolling, and talking through the cooking process, we have been using visuals to support children in following the process. We have been introducing recipe cards and sequence books to support children to follow instructions, weigh and count out ingredients and predict what is going to happen next and look back on what happened previously.
We have started to teach children the vocabulary of cooking, mix, stir, more, less, dissolve, rise, change, solid, liquid, thick, thin, hot , cold,whole half, quarter etc.
Children who returned to nursery in September have been supporting adults to model the process of sandwich making to Children starting nursery for the first time. We hope that in the spring term they will move onto doing this independently.
