Update 15/12/20 - A huge thank you to the Chesswood parent and Head Chef at '49 Tasty Thai Cuisine' restaurant in Worthing for helping us create such a fantastic Stir-Fry cooking unit in Design Technology for our Year 6 pupils this half term. Children in year 6 watched a video demonstration of the chef making a stir-fry in his own restaurant, scaled the recipe up and wrote their adapted method with great detail before preparing all of the ingredients and cooking the dish themselves! They used a variety of skills including chopping, grating, peeling, boiling and frying safely. The final product was delicious - check out the photos of some families enjoying it at home. After some requests for the recipe, you can find the original published by the chef's daughter on the school website: Home>Curriculum>DT.
Update - Even Covid19 hasn't stopped us undertaking DT with the children we have remaining in school, see for yourself!
Our new Design and Technology room is now ready to use. We are very excited to have this great resource which is exceptionally well kitted out with all sorts of high-quality new equipment to help us develop some inspirational projects across the school.
