Year 2 - Cooking up a Storm!

It's been a very busy day for Year 2 today, with lots of different learning experiences for our children.  One life skill we worked on was cooking!  Linked to our geography aspects of 'Scented Garden', we decided to have a go at making a Sri Lankan style curry. 


There was peeling, measuring, cutting, mixing, discussing reversible and irreversible changes, learning about different styles of cooking whilst also having to look at, read and understand a recipe...


It was great fun and even though we started cooking our curry this morning, we all got to taste it this afternoon!


It was very yummy and the flavours were really different compared to typical British food.  Some of us even wanted to have a go at practising these life skills at home and asked their parents to help cook dinner!
