Shang Dynasty Cooking

Shang Dynasty Cooking

Today in Design and Technology, we had a great lesson making porridge from ingredients that were used in Shang Dynasty times. We weighed and measured all of the ingredients ourselves and then cut fruit to have on top. Most of us thought it was quite yummy!

Making Shang Dynasty Recipes

In Year 4 Design and Technology we have been making porridge just like they would have in Shang Dynasty times. The children weighed out the oats, milk, water and star anise for their recipes. They then mixed them well and they were all put together in a bowl ready to cook. The children then tasted the porridge so they could see what Shang Dynasty food might have tasted like. The response was mixed but lots of us thought it tasted really good!

Tzatziki

During our DT lesson, we used the ingredients from the recipe that we had researched to make tzatziki. First, we had to measure out our ingredients. Then we used our chopping skills to slice a variety of ingredients and crush garlic. Finally we combined the ingredients together and mixed thoroughly. To end the lesson we tasted our own batch of tzatziki with some warm pitta bread!

Italian Club make pizza!

Mrs Innerdale runs an Italian after school club every Tuesday evening. Tonight the children have been able to have a go at making their very own Italia food – pizzas with the help of Mrs Humble. The children all enjoyed this activity and were very pleased to be able to take their pizzas home for tea! Let’s hope they tasted as nice ad they looked!
