1950s School Dinners

As part of our local area study, Year 5 created their own menu for a 1950s school dinner, using ingredients that would have been found in South Oxhey in this period.

Today, the class of budding chefs took up the challenge of working in teams to cook these school meals. For some of the children, this was their first time cooking a meal and they rose to the occasion wonderfully. They learned how to safely use sharp knives, peelers and hot saucepans and frying pans to create their meals.

We can’t wait until next week, where we will have access to herbs and spices from around the world to add more flavour to a 2020s style dish…
