Hazards in the Kitchen
Identifying food safety hazards in a kitchen, discussing them and in groups producing a short drama about they might come about.
CfE Experiences and Outcomes
HWB 2-33a - Having learned about cleanliness, hygiene and safety, I can apply these principles to my everyday routines, understanding their importance to health and wellbeing.
EXA 2-13a - Inspired by a range of stimuli, I can express and communicate my ideas, thoughts and feelings through drama.
EXA 2-14a - I have created and presented scripted or improvised drama, beginning to take account of audience and atmosphere.
- Kitchen interactive scene
- Worksheet for pupils with additional support needs
- Display kitchen interactive on the whiteboard
- Pupils identify food safety hazards on the kitchen interactive
- Allow some time to discuss as a whole class the consequences of these hazards
- Split pupils up into small groups
- Each group is allocated one of the food safety hazards and must come up with a short drama that shows;
- What happened to cause the hazard
- What the hazard is
- What the consequences of the hazard might be
- What could have been differently to ensure safety
- Pupils come together after allocated time to watch each group’s drama
- If possible, each group could put their dramas together as a sequence and present it to another class or at an assembly
Expressive Arts – Drama
DO – Does the group’s performance demonstrate an understanding of the consequences of kitchen hazards and how to prevent them?
- Identifies ways to reduce the risks of food poisoning, for example reheating food until piping hot, safe food storage, different courted chopping boards
Adaptations for pupils with Additional Support needs
- Some children with ASN may find an open-ended drama task very difficult
- Another way of achieving the learning intentions for this lesson while encouraging pupils to be creative in their thinking could be with the use of comic strips
- Using the accompanying sheet (photocopied onto A3), pupils draw comic strip-style pictures before and after each hazard showing what might have caused it and what the consequence of it might be
- Pupils could then make an alternative comic strip starting with their picture of what happened first and adding on to it what should have been done
- Groups could create a script for their performance.
- Explore the use of other drama conventions such as the use of mime, voice over or freeze frame
