Shine Time Cookery

Shine Time Cookery

The children who chose to join Shine Time Cookery Club had a great time this afternoon making pitta pizzas.

The children watched a short video explaining the instructions on how to make the pizza then they worked in small groups to design their own vegetarian pizza. The children first spread tomato puree on pitta bread then sprinkled cheese over it then chose from a variety of vegetables to make their pizzas.

The children then waited 5 minutes while their pizzas cooked in the ovens. They then chose to either eat the pizza in class or wrap it up in tin foil and take it home.

The classroom smelt delicious!
