‘Skill-a-long’ – an interactive food skills session

A practical webinar where participants will be encouraged to simultaneously try out the food skills being demonstrated and discussed.

Description

A practical webinar where participants will be encouraged to simultaneously try out the food skills being demonstrated and discussed. The webinar will demonstrate how to make bread rolls in the primary school classroom, covering how to make and shape dough plus top tips!  Participants are recommended to ‘skill-along’ with the webinar.  The ingredients and equipment needed can be found on the Brilliant bread recipe https://www.foodafactoflife.org.uk/recipes/3-5-years/brilliant-bread/ .  Why not participate in the webinar as a whole staff or year group? 

The ingredients and equipment on the recipe can be used for four participants who can work together to make the dough and then create their own bread roll - replicating how the session could be run with pupils in the classroom.  If you won’t be able to cook your bread rolls in school after the session, have some foil trays available so each member of staff can take their dough shape home to cook.   

In addition to the items on the recipe, you will need:

  • an apron;
  • a plastic table cloth to cover the work surface (if this is not a kitchen surface usually used for food work);
  • foil trays and grease proof paper (if taking the dough shapes home to cook).

Before the session, participants should:

  • remove nail varnish;
  • tie back long hair;
  • remove jumpers (if appropriate);
  • roll sleeves to the elbow;
  • remove jewellery from hands and wrists;
  • wash and dry hands thoroughly;
  • put on an a clean apron.

What will be covered?

  • A demonstration of how to make bread in the primary school classroom, including how to make and shape dough.
