Year 6 had a fabulous day cooking their South American inspired recipes.
As part of our History and Geography topic, we are learning about Tudor explorers, so we investigated how Tudor diets changed after the epic journeys of some of our most famous explorers.
The children researched which foods where imported and used these ingredients to create recipes. Some of these included: chilli, quinoa, potaoes, butternut squash, courgettes, tomatoes, maize flour and sweetcorn.
We had Venezuelan arepas, Peruvian quinoa dishes and delicous tacos with various vegetarian fillings, to mention just a few!
Almost all the children tasted something they had never tried before and almost all of them liked it as well! A win! I was so proud at how brave they all were to have a taste – they surprised themselves too!
Mr Sutton and Mr Smith helped by finishing off the left overs and reported back that they were amazed at how tasty it all was!
The children worked brilliantly in their groups, encourging each other, cooperating to work through the tasks and complimenting each other’s dishes – well done!
We can’t wait to do some more cooking in the summer term!
