Whatever the topic, we'll have a cooking experience ready for you...

Learn More

Whatever the topic, Classroom Kitchen can provide a cooking experience that the children will never forget!

Whether you’re learning about the Aztecs or the Victorians, countries around the world or classic fairytales, the children will taste, design and create a range of dishes throughout the day.

Being teachers, we understand the need for lots of different experiences in your curriculum. Cooking can be one of these! Whether your topic is geography, history or science, we’ll have a cooking experience for you.

The children had an fantastic experience. Very educational, fun, practical and the children gained so much from the time James spent with them. It is well organised, planned and delivered in an exciting way.

How does it work?

Usually, we spend half a day with a class which gives us enough time to prepare 2 or 3 topic related dishes with the children. Additionally, we believe our sessions are rich with knowledge related to the topic wider than the food and cooking itself. These really are days to add that extra WOW and enliven your topic!

Regular Contracts

What we offer

We offer half days and full days. For a two-form entry school, we would need a full day to work with both classes. Regardless of length, we always give schools the option to invite parents and carers in at the end of a session. This allows the children to share some of their fantastic learning that day.

Our Topic Experiences

Please select one of the below topics to find out more of how we can inspire your classroom

History

Our history themed topic days are tailored specifically to the age of your children. We focus on relevant areas surrounding the food of your chosen era and how the history of that time may have had an impact on the diet! For example, in our Victorian topic day we look at social structure whereas in topics such as the Mayans, we may look at how geography and beliefs dictated the diet of that period and civilisation! The workshop for one class typically lasts for half a day with the children getting the opportunity to cook 2 or 3 different recipes!!

Geography

Study the world of food through one of our geography based topic workshops! We can create a lesson to almost any country or continent of your choosing! Dependent on the age of the children, we tailor the session in terms of detail and NC objectives, however, no matter the age, they will get to cook 2 or 3 exciting dishes! Our session typically starts with an introduction into the food of that area and how it may differ through a country! We also take a look at the history of your destination to see how food has changed over time! A very worthwhile experience to give children a real insight into the foods of other cultures!

What Our Teachers Say

Mrs MillerSt James the Less Primary School, Rawtenstall

“James and his classroom kitchen came into my Year 3 class and it was fantastic!! James linked the morning brilliantly to our topic ‘The Victorians’. He was also very knowledgeable about the history of the topic. I can't recommend Classroom Kitchen enough.”
