Oakfield Primary Academy

Transforming lives with exceptional learning - aspiring beyond the expected


Autumn Term 2019


In nursery the children enjoy a weekly cooking session.

This term we have been making pizzas, biscuits and apple doughnuts to name a few!   The children like to take their cooking home to show and tell family and friends but sometimes they like to eat their cooking at snack time. 

Cooking helps the children to develop many different skills, it encourages them to be self-directed and independent and they learn to follow directions and problem solve.  They also develop fine motor skills by chopping, mixing, squeezing and spreading.  Above all it boosts self-confidence and a sense of personal achievement.
