Kids in the Kitchen
At King’s Hall, we offer a wide range of co-curricular activities, all led by our enthusiastic staff, who have a genuine interest in these activities.
As part of our Saturday morning programme, a number of pupils have been enjoying the delights of cooking this term, where they have been continuing to grow and develop a number of skills, including meal preparation, knife skills and pastry making. Recently, ‘spag bol’ was on the menu and our Headmaster, Justin Chippendale, was on hand to show the children how to make one of their favourite dishes.
Commenting, Justin said: "Spag Bol is a perennial favourite and so the children were keen to get to grips with this staple meal. The preparation, time of cooking for each stage and the adjustment of seasoning along the way all helped them understand just a little more about how creating a dish is more than merely following a fixed recipe. This was certainly proved come the tasting, as the children found that from the same instructions they all had quite different flavours by the end!”
He added: “At King’s Hall our vision is to enable every young person to experience the world beyond the classroom and to widen their interests, promote self-confidence and self-belief. Our varied programme of activities is designed to form an essential part of their learning and personal development, allowing each and every pupil to find their niche.”
