The Cambridge Project

Early Years  teachers were invited to speak at a conference in London about the changes we had made to our classroom environments. Researchers from Cambridge University were interested and suggested we worked with them on a project looking at resilience. From this, we developed our own project. Through cooking, we enabled children to lead their own learning through collaboration and exploration. The project took place over the course of the year, across Nursery and Reception. 

The Reception children created so many recipes that we produced our own cook book!

we have shared it here with you, so that you may have a go at cooking at home. 

We hope you have as much fun as we did.
