Sixth Form Students Food Tech in New Turney Cafe

The Turney School Sixth Form students are enjoying their early sessions in our specially built cafe. This is a safe space at the front of the school that is fully equipped with a modern kitchen. The aim is for independent learning, and then inviting guests to sample our food.

We have launched the cafe by having a few test runs baking some chocolate chip cookies. These sessions start off with small groups first assembling the instructions in the correct order. Communication in Print symbols are used. Once Mr Jones and his team are happy with the sequence, then the baking preparations can begin.

The key skills in our new Sixth Form Cafe are for teamwork and communication. The students are asked to explain to an adult at each stage what they are doing. The teaching staff are keen to find out if the pupils are chopping, mixing or cutting etc.

The ingredients for the cookies are then correctly measured out. Any problems need to be overcome by the students. An example during a recent session was that the mixture appeared too sticky. This was solved by adding in a small amount of extra flour.

Whilst the cookies were being baked, the shared clean up of the cafe took place. The session came to a close with the pupils tasting their work and offering an evaluation.
