Room eight is learning about Europe so we made pizza from Italy. In our groups we chose our toppings; chicken, ham, cheese, pepperoni, sweetcorn and tomato puree but Mrs Willox bought the bases. We spread the tomato puree on our bases and sprinkled our toppings on top. They tasted delicious.

Our friendly dragon sent us gingerbread moulds and a recipe to make a gingerbread house because we are learning about Hansel and Gretel in our Fairyland Project.
First we washed our hands so that we wouldn’t get germs on the gingerbread.
We had to measure the ingredients, mix the ingredients, knead the dough and then pushed the dough in to the moulds. We put the moulds in the oven.
When the gingerbread was cool we used icing to build it and decorate it with sweeties.
We learnt that sweets should only be eaten for treats.
We have made 3 different dishes from the past. We made lentil soup for a starter, Cottage Pie for a main and Bread and Butter pudding for dessert.
We had to use sharp knifes for cutting vegetables, we had to use scales to measure ingredients, we had to make sure we did everything in time, we had to wash vegetables, we had to mix ingredients, we had to cook ingredients and make sure all surfaces and dishes are washed and clean.
It was good to get a responsibility to be trusted with using sharp knifes and cooking near hot ovens. These are quite easy to make at home.
We did some calculations after cooking our dishes and we found out that it is cheaper to make this than buying it from a supermarket. We also found that you know exactly what is in the homemade dishes whereas we didn’t know exactly what is in the shop-bought dishes.
Overall, we really enjoyed the experience and the dishes tasted good too!
P6 completed the year of cooking activities by cooking pizzas for Primary 2. They chose foods suitable for athletes. They visited Tesco for a Farm to Fork visit and to choose ingredients.
