During Maple 2s cooking lesson this week they focused on some basic life skills. The pupils all began by washing their hands and followed a good hygiene routine. Each pupil took responsibility for cutting up a piece of fruit. The class talked about safety and the best way to hold their knives.
The pupils then added their fruits to the mixers and very carefully poured in the milk. Each pupil was encouraged to complete these tasks an independently as possible.
Once the smoothie blender was going, they all had a turn at putting their hands on it to feel the vibrations. Once finished, the pupils were asked to read the measurements on the side of the mixer and divide it equally between their peers.
Maple 2 really enjoyed this session and of course, enjoyed drinking their smoothie at the end.
