Pre-teaching food vocabulary:
This unit of work proved to be very rewarding. We have had a number of occasions where our community has been involved in programmes of work at school, and on many of these occasions we have had an opportunity to share food together. Our children have come to learn about the significance of providing food for events - and this unit provided an opportunity to reinforce this idea.
The response from the Winton Bakery and East Side café was great. The staff talked with children about their technological practice and answered their questions fully. It was obvious that many of the children have had opportunities to observe, investigate, and use everyday technologies like ovens, microwaves, timers, electric knives, mixers.
Feedback from the children indicated their satisfaction with the process and the quality and quantity of food prepared and the unanimous consensus was that we should do something similar every Friday!
