Cooking savoury pastries - Design and Technology - Autumn 1 2018
Initially, we began this Food Technology topic by researching different food groups and investigating what makes up a healthy balanced diet. Then, in small groups, the children designed healthier pastries, which combined cheese with a selection of fruit and vegetables. Having tasted a variety of cheeses and made selections for their fruit and vegetables, the children chose casing designs in groups. Next came the cooking, which involved a variety of skills including: delegating responsibilities within the group, preparing pastry and making judgements on how much filling or decoration was needed. Everyone's pastry was uniquely designed and looked very appetising! Needless to say, the children enjoyed eating their cooked pastries and they were quite rightly proud of themselves!
