Last week each afternoon the school was having a DT focus. In Oak class Miss Gates and I thought that it would be a good idea to link our DT focus with the upcoming Festa Italia for which each class is producing a piece of artwork. During the course of the week the children chose their groups and researched a main meal and side dish to prepare and cook on Friday. Some of the groups chose to make fresh pasta which was great fun to do; the pasta machine made the dough so long – up to 3 metres! Once each group had cooked their food they got to eat their tasty creations! We finished by evaluating our creations: what we thought worked well, what we could have done better and how we would change things if we were to do this again.
Here are some pictures from our cooking day for you to enjoy!
