My First Home Economics Session At High School

P7's Have Been Visiting The High School over The Last Few School Days To Take Part In An Home Econimics Class To Make An Energy Bar, (Flapjacks)!

Today, 15th May 2012 I took my first visit to Inverkeithing High School to participate in a Home Economics class where we made an energy bar - flapjacks. I will take you through step by step, telling you what to do. I have made all the key points bold for you!! This serves about 2.... But it depends how big a piece you want!

1. Girls, You will need to tie your hair up so that you don't get your hair in the mixture. If your hair is in bunches, you will need to tie it back in a ponytail.

2. Put on an apron! Cooking can be very messy indeed so it is a good idea to put on an apron. I know I got covered!!!

3. Clean the surface you will be using The surface you are using will need to be clean so it doesn't spread germs.

4. Wash your hands. Everytime you cook you must wash your hands. People don't want dirty hands touching the food they have to eat!

Porridge Oats (75 grams)
