Food and Nutrition
Throughout the children's time at Bridge House, children will be provided with opportunities to access the basics of food and hygiene. They will participate in a wide variety of activities such as practical cookery and food safety, where they will gain a greater understanding of nutrition and health and safety practices.
Children will be required to use technical terminology precisely with confidence and accuracy, building up to an extended vocabulary. They will apply their science and mathematical knowledge in their understanding of weight, costings, chemical and physical reactions in foods, how our bodies work and how foods are linked to health and well-being and diets.
Our children will develop their practical skills and understanding of food hygiene to help prepare them for adulthood, allowing children to prepare their own meals and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Practical skills developed will include baking, forming, icing, roasting, frying and chopping.
