Cookery Training 2/7/19
Mrs Verrill and I completed a cookery training course held at Harrogate College. We spent the day cooking different recipes, even made our own lunch of soup, bread and various salads. We had a great time and learnt lots of new things and have some new ideas for next school year for cookery club. As part of the course we have been able to apply for £1,000.00 to enhance and build on our current cookery provisions. Mrs Verrill and I are in the process of deciding what we should spend the money on!
25/6/19 Making strawberry ice cream
For the last session with the year 2s we tried our hand at making ice cream. We enjoyed cutting up the strawberries and tasting the condensed milk and blitzing it all in the blender. Fingers crossed it is successful and tastes delicious. Mrs Verrill and I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has attended cookery club over this school year. We promise we will be back in September.
Our last cookery session with the group of years 3 and 4s, we made chocolate crispy buns to sell to the whole school at playtime. They went down a real treat and in the process raised £34.00 towards cookery club to buy ingredients and new equipment. Mrs Verrill and Mrs Coupland are having a couple of weeks break before re-starting after Easter with some year 2s.
22/1/19 - Cheesy roll ups
This week we used the rubbing in method to make the cheesy roll ups. The children worked in 2’s and 3’s and had to weigh out all the ingredients as well as follow the method on how to make the roll ups. The children all tried paprika! and liked it. We had to be careful using the grater when grating the cheese. The children all proved experts at using the rolling pin and listened to the advice of not pressing the rolling pin down to hard. Afterwards, the children washed up and tidied the DT room, leaving it spotless.
Our first week with the Year 3/4 group. We made Apple Muffins, using the creaming method. The children were very keen to make the muffins and followed the recipe well. They were a little anxious when it came to cracking the eggs into the mixture. We saved a couple of the muffins for Mrs Brown and Mrs Graham, and they both said they were ‘delicious’ a very high accelade indeed.
Year 3 Cookery group
Unfortunatlely, Mrs Verrill and myself were not in school on the first session for the year 3s, however they were left in the very capable hands of Mrs Riddler. They made some lovely chunky monkey biscuits. Luckily they saved some for us and we thoroughly enjoyed them. 🍪

Bishop Monkton decorate off. With this being the last session for the Y5/6 children, we decided to challenge the children to decorate four buns in the theme of Valentine’s Day. Mrs Filippi was head judge and spent a long time deliberating who the overall winner was going to be. After some time, Mrs Filippi picked Oliver Cairns , well done Oliver.
