Design and Technology (DT) 9/10/20
The Year 5 classes have been focusing on American Cuisine in Design and Technology for Autumn One. The topic is closely linked to their Geography unit entitled ‘From Hayes to USA’. Pupils were tasked to prepare a classic American dish to which they all chose to make the popular apple pies. Following a recipe, the pupils had to show an understanding and follow hygiene and safety rules for cooking to reduce the chances of accidents and help keep any germs out of their food. They were seen measuring out ingredients accurately and mixing them using the techniques stated in the recipe. There was much excitement as they all rolled out the pastry to the required thickness to put on the finishing touch on the apple pies before baking them in the oven.
