The results are in…

Congratulations to our winning team!

There is a very old fashioned saying…”If you can’t stand the heat, say out of the kitchen.”

What heat did your team face?   That is… what problems did your team have to overcome and how did you solve them?

 

The Invention Test …a gastronomical group challenge

The grand finale, the  “pièce de résistance”, our Pantry Plunder Invention Test didn’t make the front page of any newspaper or magazine.

It was however, the final stage of a process that has seen the children, (working in groups) with the aim of following recipe below…
1 heaped cup of research
2 cups of careful planning
300grams of analysis 
2 heaped tablespoons of justified decision making ( be wary of excess stiring)
1 tablespoon of the zest of motivated students

There was plenty of slicing and dicing, grating and plating.

Thank you to all of our parent helpers who ensured that safe foodhandling practice was adhered to. 

Thank you to our guest judges who were faced with some tough decisions.

And finally…Well Done Year 6 Master Chefs!
To quote an old saying “The proof is in the pudding” however, in this case” too many chefs did not spoil the broth”. ( ask mum or dad to explain the meaning of these)

Breakfast Cereals… the good, the bad and the ugly

Given that breakfast is meant to fuel our bodies with energy needed to kick start our day, our students have been engaged in an-ongoing investigation in relation to the nutritional value of breakfast cereals.
We began by looking into the nutrition of cereals and ranking them accordingly.

They then had to investigate cereal boxes in order to create one of their own using a number of criteria, one of which was to include 3 of the ” tricks of advertising”   

Students have been asked to explain the task in detail to mum and dad and  gather written feedback on their criteria sheet.
