This week we chose our new topic – we are going to be learning all about Scottish food! We have started by exploring lots of different Scottish dishes and finding out what their ingredients are. We found out that cullen skink is made out of smoked haddock, potatoes and onions, and that shortbread is made with sugar, butter and flour. Next, we are going to learn about where all of these ingredients come from.
We had lots of questions about how Scottish food is made.
Daryn asked, “Where did all of the ingredients for shortbread and porridge come from?”
Harris asked, “How is the pastry for steak pie put together?”
Ryan asked, “How do they put the porridge oats in a box?”
Charlotte asked, “How do you make haggis, neeps and tatties?”
Lucy asked, “How is cullen skink put together?”
Olivia asked “What are some other Scottish foods?”
Isla said “Lots of the foods come from an island called Islay! That’s like my name!”
Alfie wondered, “Where was the first place haggis was made?”
Becki asked “Who was the first person to try all of these Scottish foods?”
Zakir asked “Was shortbread made in 1984?”
Ross asked “Do tatties grow in farms in other countries?”
Aisha asked, “How do get tatties into different shapes?”
We are going to try and answer lots of these questions during our topic time this term!
