Cookery: Intent

Our Cookery Curriculum is carefully designed and planned to embrace our multicultural community. Each term we explore a vast array of recipes from around the world. Check out some of the recipes we try out in school and see if you can re-create them at home!

How do we experience Cookery at St Michael's?

Here at St Michael’s we are privileged to have cookery embedded in our Explore Curriculum. Every class from Nursery to Year 6 has the opportunity to improve their culinary skills and experience a life skill at a young age.

Each class participates in cookery for 6 weeks as part of their Design Technology curriculum, developing culinary skills such as chopping, cutting, peeling, knife skills, and general health and hygiene. They explore the seasonality of different fruits and vegetables and plan recipes accordingly.

We promote a healthy living lifestyle and teach our children how to have a balanced diet. We teach this through our cookery lessons and in other subjects such as Science and PSHE.
