Scrummy scones

The aim of this session is for children to learn that savoury scones can be eaten as a meal accompaniment (e.g. with soup, as part of a packed lunch) and that different ingredients can be added to scones to give them different flavours. The main activity, Have a go, involves the children learning how to make scones using the rubbing-in method and using a cutter.


  • use descriptive words to explain how a scone tastes;
  • name different ingredients that can be added to scones;
  • name a selection of different cooking equipment;
  • preform simple food skills safely with a focus on rubbing-in and using a cutter.
