Y5 

FOOD 

  • Understand the importance of correct storage and handling of ingredients (using knowledge of micro-organisms).  
  • Measure accurately and calculate ratios of ingredients to scale up or down from a recipe.  
  • Demonstrate a range of baking and cooking techniques.  
  • Create and refine recipes, including ingredients, methods, cooking times and temperatures.

We are trying to raise money to support children at home with their learning. We will be doing a 24 Hour Live teach-a-thon. Here is the donation link https://gofund.me/4ef66acb
