Learning Languages in the Kitchen

19 May 2015

Our new primary kitchen has been used a lot this year for all sorts of learning. It was the setting for a crime scene, when Year 6 started a Mystery Writing project and now children have been using it to develop their Modern Foreign Languages too!

En La Cocina

One of the primary Spanish classes has been learning about Spanish culture and food and recently used the kitchen to make their own Spanish tortillas.

Pupils had to follow the authentic recipe including preparing all the ingredients themselves. They really enjoyed it (especially eating it afterwards!) and it really encouraged them to think about the food eaten in Spain. They then continued their learning by writing restaurant dialogues using some of the words they learnt.

Dans La Cuisine

In Year 5 French last week, children headed to the kitchen to prepare their first ever French meal.

After studying the film ‘Ratatouille’ and learning the names of different vegetables and the French verbs to cut, to mix, to add, to pour and many more, making our own Ratatouille seemed an obvious choice!

In the film, the main character, a rat named Remy, tells a chef how to cook by hiding under his chef’s hat and giving instructions. The children practised giving instructions to their partner on how to make ratatouille by saying what to do and then by guiding them like puppets to do it.

Everyone then made their own ratatouille and garlic bread– délicieux!
