We believe that cooking is a core life skill and our aim is to give everyone the opportunity to learn to cook and enjoy good food.
Cooking club is run by Mrs Rudwick, Mrs Watson and Mrs Wardell for KS2 pupils.
If your child would like to join in the sessions please contact the School office.

This was our final week with this group. We made sweet red pepper and cheese soup, accompanied by flatbreads with tomato topping. We also made a very tasty apple and cinnamon upside down pudding. There seemed to be a lot of washing up, but we got everything cooked and cleared up in time.
If you would like your child to join our cooking club and they are in Year 3 and above ask at the office. If you have been many times before you are always welcome to come back. We keep a waiting list and take it in turns over the school year so everyone gets a go.
At Cooking Club we made spinach, mushroom and onion lasagne accompanied by the most delicious cheesy garlic bread – we used a cheese none of us had heard of before – Taleggio! It is like a Camembert but stronger in taste – really yummy. We also made some chocolate surprise cupcakes – the surprise ingredient was beetroot.
Our cooks in action
A new group of cooks started this week. We made a fabulous paprika chicken stew with herby dumplings, soda bread and houmous. It was not only very colourful but extremely delicious. Mrs Watson is off on a cooking course for the club so we are looking forward to some new recipes. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks.
We cooked Mixed Vegetable Pie, Apple Crumble and homemade custard. We were most impressed with the custard as it actually thickened which has not happened before.
Some of the children took apples home last week and made toffee apples, apple crumble and apple turnovers. We tasted them at the end of our session and were very impressed. We may give them homework again.
A new Cooking Club group started this week. With the cold weather here we made some warming and comforting food – Parsnip and Apple Soup with Parsnip Crisps and Lamb and Lentil Moussaka. Mrs Buttress very kindly donated some locally grown apples but, as we ran out of time, each pupil took home two apples to transform into something delicious before next week. We are looking forward to trying the different creations.
