Tikka look at this idea

Geography Ages 10 to 11

In geography (QCA Unit 10 - A village in India) pupils learn about traditional Indian cuisine by exploring the village of Chembakolli.

We achieved this spicy learning experience by approaching a local Indian restaurant, because in exchange for a photograph in the local newspaper, the staff are generally more than happy to provide traditional Indian cuisine free of charge to help in the practical element of this unit. My class of 33 pupils was fortunate enough to sample: poppadoms, naan bread, rice, dahl and four varieties of curry with a range of spices (mild to hot)
