In Foundation, we try to bake with the children as often as possible - simply because the learning opportunities that baking provides are endless! Not only that, but it's yummy too! Cooking is a needed life skill. It is an authentic experience where children can gain a range of skills, specifically in Maths. It can help children understand traditions and really aids language and communication. When children can complete activities independently their confidence soars. Following a recipe also helps children to learn to read for a purpose and follow instructions. They can talk about their likes and dislikes and about healthy eating.
