Our nursery kitchen is designed with an open hatch to enable our children to become independent in self-serving and to get involved with cooking.
The children have enjoyed making their own tea-time pizzas at nursery, using a wholewheat base and choosing from lots of healthy toppings to make their own individual creation. We talked about the toppings they could see on the table and which ones they thought looked tasty – the favourite was sweetcorn!
The children helped roll out their base and talked about the shape and texture of their pizzas. They learned to spread the sauce across their pizzas and added their toppings. The children watched their pizzas go into the oven and waited in anticipation for them to bake. We were all very proud when they came out of the oven smelling delicious and looking yummy. The children loved sitting together to eat the pizzas they had made, and even shared them with some of the younger children!
