Food: Come Dine with Me

Working in groups, children research and prepare a three-course meal taught as a rotational activity over three lessons. They will taste-test and score their food and when they aren’t cooking, they will research the journey of their main ingredient from ‘farm to fork’ or write a favourite recipe to include in a class cookbook. ***New Knowledge organiser***
