At London Fields, all pupils have cooking lessons in our purpose-built pupils' kitchen. Learning to cook is a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and later in life. We believe that instilling a love of cooking in pupils will also open a door to one of the great expressions of human creativity.
During the pupils' cooking lessons, pupils develop their understanding of seasonality, where ingredients come from and the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet. Strong curriculum links are made between the carefully planned cooking lessons and knowledge learnt in subjects such as Design and Technology, Science and Maths.
