Cooking with me from the 2nd July 2012!!!!!!!
Cooking with me involves groups of children working together to create recipes and will encourage them to explore other activities, such as painting, dressing up and role play based on their cooking themes.
The scheme encourages children to cook from an early age, developing key skills outlined in the EYFS framework. Cooking is understood to develop skills such as time, measuring counting and weighing, as well as introduce them to science by helping them to investigate, predict, experiment and observe.
Cooking will require children to follow recipe cards, sequence order of photos, introduce new words, encourage opinion and reinforce their language development.
