Prep Pupils Cook for their Parents
School dinners take on a whole new twist as pupils from our Year 5 Cookery Club host an evening meal for their parents.
School dinners took on a whole new twist when pupils from our Year 5 Cookery Club hosted an evening meal for their parents in the Hunter Hall this month. The nine- and ten-year-olds showed off their culinary skills to create a delicious and healthy two-course meal that was enjoyed by all.
The dinners took place on two consecutive Tuesdays and the children were divided into two teams each week. One group was tasked with cooking the main course (spicy bean burritos with salad) and then entertaining, and sitting down to eat with their guests. The second group set the tables, prepared the pudding (chocolate and honeyed banana layer pots) and tackled the washing up. The groups then swapped roles for the second week of the dinner party - with pupils Annabel and William even providing musical entertainment on the violin and flute.
Cookery Club organiser Mrs Bettison said: “Great fun was had by both children and visiting families, with several children reporting that they had enjoyed their turn at washing up and serving, just as much as they had being waited upon. Some even expressing a desire to open their own restaurant in the future. Well done Cookery Club, you made both me and Mrs Roper very proud.”
Extra-curricular activities are an important part of life at Kimbolton, with around 50 after-school options (including sporting, musical, creative and academic) at both our Prep and Senior School.
