Adopt a Chef

The Year 6 children have been taking part in the Adopt a Chef programme. For the last chef visit the children were given the opportunity to make dough. The chef taught them about the ingredients used and how they are good for you.

This project allowed the children to learn about where their food comes from and what goes in it as well as having the opportunity to make some food practically.
