At Park Spring we want to teach children the life skills of food preparation and cooking.
Why? So that children have the skills to look after themselves and their families in the future.
We also want the children to learn where food comes from and what makes a healthy, balanced meal.
Why? So children can make healthy choices around food and they can help to make the world a more sustainable place to live in.
In Nursery, children learn skills such as peeling, as well as developing their independence. They learn to peel fruit, such as bananas and satsumas, and they also learn to put the straws in their milk carton as well as pouring their own water in the dining room.
In Reception, children use the apples and pears grown in the EYFS garden to make a fruit crumble or cake. They also make hedgehog bread rolls when learning about Harvest, Autumn and the story ‘The Little Red Hen’.
