The Cooking Classroom

Cooking is an essential life skill that enables children, young people and adults to lead happy and healthy lives. We are passionate about promoting healthy eating and basic cooking skills.

We provide all children at St. Patrick's Primary School with hands on ‘healthy cooking’ experiences.


During our cooking lessons, we :

  • reinforce current health and well-being messages through cooking

  • demonstrate how eating healthily can be affordable and interesting

  • teach even the youngest of cooks how to work safely and hygienically

  • make cooking fun and informative!

  • learn food preparation skills (knife skills, rubbing in method, bread making etc)

  • follow and adapt recipes to create healthy meals

  • develop literacy, numeracy and digital skills
