We currently run 6 weekly preschool classes on Tuesdays and Fridays and an afterschool class for 5 -9 year olds on a Tuesday, all term time only.
Our weekly classes are at St Andrews Church, Eastfield Avenue, Monkseaton, NE25 8LU.
Each class begins with an introduction about the ingredients and equipment we will be using for the class recipe. Games and songs are used to encourage participation and enhance learning. We then move on to the recipe creation! All recipes involve some pre-prepared ingredients and some which the children need to count/weigh/measure.
We talk about and taste the food and use lots of language and numeracy skills in the process. When the dishes are prepared, we cook/refrigerate them whilst the children move on to a linked activity, such as crafts, stories, songs or games. We then return to the cooking table to sample our delicious dishes!
Any leftover food can then be taken home (please provide a suitable container) and your child will also take home a recipe card so they can recreate the dish at home.
