In Onyx class every day we look at our calendar and talk about exciting events that are coming up. The children were really excited about pancake day coming up! So we decided to do some preparation for the big day!
First, we loved reading the story of Mr Wolves Pancakes!
Can you remember who the main character was?
Our favourite; the big bad wolf!
In our story, the wolf needed to write a list first, and go to the shop, and then he had to follow a recipe to show him what to do!
The children were so helpful, using their phonic knowledge to make a list for Miss Boyd to go shopping.
The next day she got the ingredients, but we didn’t know how to make them! Miss Boyd found a recipe and everyone helped to read it!
First we washed our hands, so that no germs would go in our food! We don’t want to make anyone ill. The children worked as a team to make the pancakes themselves. When we went to the food tech room to fry them, we had to be very very careful. The pan gets very hot, so Miss Deakin fried the pancakes. Can you remember how the mixture changed?
Everyone agreed, our pancakes were delicious!
What have we been learning about?
Measuring time using the calendar and celebrating events with our families and freinds.
Applying our phonic knowledge to reading for a purpose e.g reading a recipe
Being safe, careful and responsible around kitchen equipment e.g. hot pans.
How can you continue learning at home?
Encourage your child to read for a purpose e.g. following a recipe.
Follow simple recipes together, allowing your child to be as independent as possible, talking about the risks.
