Ready Steady Cook comes to KS4 at Barncroft!

Ready, Steady, Cook DESC!

Last Friday, 19th November 21, we were lucky to have a  visit from the Navy, who organised a “Ready Steady Cook” competition with our learners.  Each team were given a box of food with various ingredients.  They were given one hour and a half to decide what they were going to cook, a main and a dessert and then present it.  The winning team would receive a Navy cook T shirt. The learners were split in to 3 groups with a staff member each to assist.

From the start the learners were brilliant, extremely focused and all determined to win. They decided what they wanted to cook, divided the responsibilities, and proceeded to cook amazing food, without any recipes!



The Navy were so impressed with their cooking skills, they could not decide which team were the best, so all received a T shirt.

The Navy then gave a presentation on what careers are available and how they could find further information about life in the Navy.  The learners listened intenetly and asked some great questions. One or two of them were really interested in a future at sea…..
