Having taken part in a series of activities in October as part of Black History Month, children from Woodberry Day Nursery in Winchmore Hill were inspired to get creative in the kitchen.
After learning about and celebrating Afro-Caribbean culture and pioneering figures through history, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Church Hill were delighted to make their very own Caribbean patties with the help of their talented Kitchen Assistant.
From chopping vegetables for the filling, to creating their very own dough from scratch, there were learning opportunities at every turn for the children as they closely followed the recipe, developing basic kitchen knowledge and building on their fine motor skills as they went.
Once cooked, the group enjoyed the patties as part of their daily snack, before using the interactive whiteboard to co-research different Caribbean and African countries on the map.
Woodberry Day Nursery Quality Manager, Nikol Moravova explained;
“We had a brilliant time marking Black History Month in October and the cooking activity was a brilliant extension of this. We love to learn about a range of cultures and celebrations in nursery and this helps to create rich and insightful experiences for the children.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
