Don’t forget to set your alarm for 6 pm! We’ve lost count of the amount of times we’ve heard that sentence at PACS.
Cooking Club takes place twice a week on a Wednesday and Friday from 12.30 – 2.15 pm and is aimed at children from age 2 1/2 to 5 years old. Unlike most of our groups, you need to book a space to ensure that we have enough ingredients! To make things fair, we allocate the spaces on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To book a space for our Wednesday session, you need to email at 6 pm on a Monday, and for our Friday session, you book at 6 pm on a Wednesday. Spaces are usually all gone by 6.03 pm! Needless to say, it’s a very popular group.
The session begins at 12.30 pm. To allow children to come from preschool, we have half an hour of free play. As it gets close to 1 pm, we start to gather the children to put on their aprons. The children are always excited when they see the aprons; most of them have a favorite!
Once they have washed their hands, we can begin to cook. At PACS, we pride ourselves on the fact that we offer the children the opportunity to cook lots of different dishes, which are mostly healthy, except for when we do chocolate week! Hot pots, lasagnas, fajitas, pies, and many, many more ensure the children learn about foods from different countries. Chopping, stirring, bashing, and slicing help to develop their fine motor skills. They also get to taste things too!
Once we’ve finished cooking, it’s time to play again while we clean up! Then we ask the children to help us pack away the toys so we can play some games. “What’s the time, Mr. Wolf,” “Simon Says,” and many other favorites cause great excitement… phew… after all that cooking and playing, the children are ready for home time! The children collect what they made… and there are happy faces all around!
Come along and see for yourself!
