    Essential like using the cooker, washing up properly, working neatly, puttung stuff away dry and following instructions.
    I usually start with health and safety, plenty of DVDs, PP's available for that. Using a knife to make fresh fruit salad, using the hob and grill to make scrambled egg or beans on toast, using the oven to make scones. Believe me they do need to learn. One yr 7 lad told me he knew how to use an oven, he said you put the stuff in and when it goes ping it's ready.
    I'll look for my yr 7 Sow, it may be on resources. But you need to mix basic instruction and use of equipment and ingredients with some basic nutrition, health and hygiene and a bit of creativity.
