Food Science - Years 4 & 6
This week, as part of the Design and Technology Curriculum, Years 4 and 6 studied food science.
Year 4 looked at Healthy Wraps and were taught key skills of good hygiene; safe cutting techniques; combining flavours.
Year 6 looked at Savoury Muffins and were taught key skills of good hygiene; accurate measuring; appropriate use of kitchen utensils; combining flavours.
All pupils were able to taste test ingredients before designing their own recipe to create flavour combinations. They will make a sample following their recipes and further taste test before making their final product. During the evaluation process, they will eat their product to review and evaluate it.
“Yesterday, in D&T, we learned to make plain savoury muffins. My favourite part was mixing the smooth buttery mixture! This was another fun opportunity at Carterhatch and we were learning too! I can’t wait to taste test”. – Alina
“Yesterday, we started baking our savoury muffins for our D&T lesson. This was another super fun thing to do while we were learning too. We can’t wait to try them and add our own savoury ingredients”. - Jenson
