Cookery Classes

In all of our cookery classes, we follow the EYFS, KS1 & KS2 nutrition and cooking curriculum. It gives children the chance to learn new skills, explore foods, kitchen safety & hygiene.

The children will learn how to prepare simple dishes, where the ingredients come from and how we use them in the cooking an baking. Not only will children learn new skills and expand their knowledge, numeracy & literacy skills it also helps build confidence and independence.

  • Online After School Clubs for primary age children (though younger siblings welcome to join in) Wednesdays at 4.30pm with Debbie
  • Online Junior Chef’s Kitchen for ages 8+ Fridays 4.30pm with Ruth

Online Junior Chef’s Kitchen Club

Suitable for approx. 8-14 years

Let the kids cook tea on our Junior Chef’s Kitchen.
Our Online Junior Chef’s kitchen is suitable for ages 8+ and aimed at children who are already fairly competent in the kitchen and looking for the next step up.
During the term we teach the child a variety of skills:

Knife Skills; using a knife to safely cut up vegetables, fruit, fish & meat
Hob & Oven; learning how to use the hob and oven safely
Hygiene; talking about how to keep the kitchen clean, the dangers of undercooked meat and cross contamination

The sessions are held over Zoom and last approx. 1.5 hours. We will be making a variety of weekday meals and some puddings and we will talk them through the recipes a step at a time. Being online we will be there to guide them but depending on their age, ability and confidence they may need some parental supervision especially when using a knife, hob and oven.

Upon booking you will receive the recipes and zoom link and any guidance you need for each class. The most important bit of information is please don’t prep anything for the classes as we want the children to be doing it all themselves and we give time in the class to prep everything and cook.  

At the end of the session, your tea is cooked and we will even encourage them to do the washing up too!

Our recipe activity booklet will be posted out to you ahead of the term, which will include the recipes, journal cards and quizzes.
