Our All Day Children Do Cookery (and there’s a recipe for you to make it at home!)

Posted on June 05 2015

All day Montessori children had a lot of fun making bread sticks on Monday afternoon.  Cookery is a much enjoyed activity by all the children as well as the teachers. If we start the children young,  with any luck, they will develop a life long love of cooking as well as the skills they can use throughout their adulthood.  Cooking is a fantastic activity for our children as they can learn and practice a whole range of skills. It gives the children a chance to experience mathematical skills of accuracy, calculation as well as measuring, not to mention the skills of clearing up after cooking! (Always a good skill to have!)
It also gives them an understanding of food and where it comes from. More importantly, cooking is a great way of bonding with our children. 

If any of the parents are interested here is the recipe for breadsticks: 

1. Pile the flour on to a clean surface and make a large well in the centre.
2. Dissolve 1 teaspoonful of sugar, 1 teaspoonful of salt and 1 teaspoon of easy dry yeast in a warm glass of milk.
3. Pour the mixture in the well and mix everything.
4.Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
5. Place in a well oiled bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise for about 30 minutes at least.
6.Shape the dough into small loaves or sticks, brush it with egg yolk and bake it at 175degrees C for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
7.Enjoy eating them with butter or any dip.
