Week 6 - Pitta Bread Pizza...yummy!
Another Cooking and Nutrition recipe for you this week - easy peasy pitta bread pizza. Talk about the healthy options and why we need to eat healthily with your child.
Skills: use a variety of utensils safely; work in a safe, hygienic way; understand why we need a healthy diet.
Can you prepare a healthy lunch?
Pitta bread pizza - takes 10 minutes to cook in an oven. Choose your own toppings - the more vegetables, the more healthy it is. Serve the finished product with a side salad - absolutely fabulous!
Week 5 - making scones
Cream Teas (a cup of tea and a scone, with strawberry jam and clotted cream) became popular in Devon and Cornwall (the south-west of England) in the 1850s and is still a delicious day-time treat. It was National Cream Tea day on Friday so it got the Year 6 Team talking - do you put the jam on the scone first or the cream.....or, do you have butter as well? None of us could agree so we all had our own cream tea/bake off at home.
Find out more about cream teas here:
The recipe I used was taken from: https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/scones_35420
Skills needed: measuring, mixing, good hygiene and baking
A cream tea: healthy or unhealthy eating. What do you think?
This week, we will continue to improve our sewing skills by designing and creating a sock puppet. Inspiration came from:
They use a glue-gun on this sock puppet - mine is at school so we are using needle and thread.
We would love to see your finished products. Send a photo into the year 6 email firstname.lastname@example.org or into our Facebook page.
