Other curriculum learning for all year groups 

Create a weekly recipe for a family 

How to do it 

  • When hotels and restaurants create menus, they think about the following things: 
  • What food is available and in season 
  • What their customers may like eating e.g. young families or elderly people may like different menus  
  • How different foods mix well  
  • Using a balance of healthy foods and treats  

Your task is to create a weekly recipe for a family. It could be your own family or an imaginary family. At this time, many of our familiar foods have  been difficult to get in our normal shops and we have had to adapt and buy different things. This is one of the things that you will have to consider  when you devise your recipe. You can choose to just create the menu for someone else to cook, or you can create it and cook it.  

Think about: 

  • Creating your recipe for the needs of different people. Is there anyone who has an allergy to certain foods or is a vegetarian or vegan? • What foods are available  
  • How you will make your recipe a mixture of healthy foods and treats 

Planning  

Once you have decided who your recipe is for and what foods you are going to need you will need to plan your recipes for each day. 

Think about: 

  • The three main meals of the day which are broadly breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You may want to provide some healthy snacks too • Getting inspiration from recipe books, magazines, or online recipes 
  • Creating a recipe book or chart which shows your ideas. This could be in the format of pictures that you have cut out from a magazine or  your own writing and drawing 

Creating  

You may only create the recipe but you may want to make the food too so you will need to think about: 

  • How you will get the food. You may need to make a shopping list or look at the items that you already have at home that you can use.  Remember that someone may need to get the food for you if only one person is leaving the house to do the food shopping  • How to create the recipes. You will probably need help from someone else to make your meals each day 
  • Taking photos of your recipes and getting your family to ‘rate’ the menus, giving each one a score. You could then record this in a new  recipe book to use in the future

What you will learn  

Creating your recipes will help you to: 

  • Understand what makes a healthy menu and diet 
  • Understand the different foods that go together 
  • Improve your writing and drawing skills 
  • Improve your resourcefulness

Be an estate agent - write an online advert for a home 

How to do it 

An estate agent is a person or business that arranges the selling or renting of a home. This activity is about imagining that you are an estate agent  and you are writing an advert to sell a home. 

Think about: 

  • The type of home you might be advertising. Research online adverts for homes or some adverts in newspapers or magazines for  inspiration 
  • The people who are going to buy your home. The needs of a large family would be very different to the needs of an elderly person or a  young couple  
  • The special features of the home that you are selling. Does it have a south-facing garden, which means it gets the sun, or a large kitchen  where people could entertain? 

Completing the activity: 

Once you have decided on the home that you are selling you need to design a format for your advert. Estate agents often split up the details of the  home into the different areas and the outside space. 

Think about: 

  • The format of your advert. You might design your advert into different sections for each of the different rooms • Considering the language that you use to advertise it. You might use adjectives (describing words) to engage people and show how  exceptional the features of the home are 
  • Using pictures and diagrams to promote the home. Your advert needs to be colourful and exciting so that people will want to view the  property  

What you will learn  

Writing an online advert for a home will help you to: 

  • Improve your writing and drawing skills 
  • Improve your imagination
