Making Jollof rice

Making with Bernie

This week the preschool group extended their Black History activities with their making with Bernie our nursery cook session. The children enjoyed researching the recipe and helped Bernie to gather the ingredients they needed. The children then competed their own risk assessment and used their child safe knives to chop the different ingredients.


The children then took their chopped ingredient so the hot hob with adult support and added their ingredients to the pan.


The children were keen to comment on where the ingredients come from and following the cooking activity the children shared stories around the foods they enjoy at home and watch a short education clip on traditional African and Caribbean foods.
