CHILDREN at a Chester primary school have been enjoying a weekly cookery class despite having no ovens.
Teaching assistant at Highfield Primary School, Jackie Holden, runs the weekly after-school club for year 6 pupils.
She explained: “We have made a wide variety of dishes, which the children have to take home to bake because we don’t have any cooking facilities here.
“This week we made a lemon drizzle cake, which the cookery class then took home to bake.
“The school provides the tins, and each child took home a lemon, icing sugar, chocolate eggs and ribbon to decorate their cakes.
“I had made one at home so they could see what the finished product would look like.
“We have been running the class for over a year now, and one of our class last year even won a Junior Chef award for her cooking at the Chester Food and Drink Festival.”
So far this year, the class has managed to whip up a number of recipes including pizza and breadsticks, all prepared at school and baked at home.
