Middle

I found a chef's hat in Zariya's fancy dress box for her to wear. When she first put this on and looked in the mirror she said, "Like a baker hat!" To begin with, Zariya and I looked through lots of recipe books for ideas for our baking. She helped me choose what to bake by looking at the colourful pictures and pointed out the double chocolate chip cookies saying that she liked to eat biscuits. Zariya found looking through the books VERY interesting as she could see what the finished product would look like. ...read more.

Conclusion

I could see that she was used to helping her mother with cooking because she was very confident with holding the wooden spoon and mixing. She also knew that we needed flour, sugar and eggs for our baking and has a good memory because she knew where everything was kept. Zariya could not wait for the biscuits to cook and kept looking through the oven glass door at them and turning the oven light on herself. She was careful not to touch the glass and told me it was hot! When they had cooled down enough to eat she helped me arrange them on the plate and kept the largest biscuit for her dad to eat when he came home from work. ...read more.

The risk assessment could have been improved by making reference to equipment that could be used to minimise the risk - oven mitts for example.
