Well it has been an exciting and challenging start to Food Tech this year. The students are excited about designing their own food and are really getting creative.
The grade 1s and 2s made lemonade scones – the recipes can be food on student Seesaw accounts. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed mixing and getting all sticky – and we all showed respect by thoroughly cleaning our work stations afterwards. I have posted the standard recipe for lemonade scones, but if you are dairy free, I substituted coconut cream, and if you are gluten free, I substituted gluten free self raising flour, in both cases the recipe worked out well and the feedback was positive from teachers that sampled left overs. The scones helped energise us through our long week of ‘Get to know you’ interviews.
The grade 3s and 4s, spent a week designing their smoothies. While the 5s and 6s were designing their shakes. The students had great discussions as they inquired about their friends’ dietary requirements before researching a suitable recipe. Some students were risk takes by designing their own recipe instead of using an existing recipe. Next week we will reflect on the success of our drinks and set goals on improving the design process and balancing flavours, ingredients and textures before embarking on our next design.
