Design & Technology


You may have heard the tale about the invention of the ‘pancake’. 





There was once a family living in a cottage. The children were all so hungry but all they had in the cupboard was flour, an egg and some milk. So, the mum whisked all the ingredients together and fried the mixture in a pan. The children were served the now cooked mixture and named them ‘pancakes.’

This is an example of how someone invented a new recipe.

Can you design and make a new recipe, for your family to try, out of the things in your cupboards?

Remember to give your invention a name.

You could write the ingredients and method out and make a page for a cookbook.
