We all love pancakes and loved that we got to make some of our own. We had to follow the instructions and mix the batter ourselves. We had to be very careful and remember what we had learnt in Safety Week about staying safe in the kitchen.
Some children remembered what they had learnt when we made pancakes and used it to write their own lists of ingredients later in the week. Leighanna sounded out to write her list.
Mateo drew pictures to write his list and then Jakoby labelled them to finish it when they were making pancakes in the Mud Kitchen.
We used the toppings that we liked to do some maths. We used the cubes to make towers and see which was the most popular before using Purple Mash to create a pictogram. It which easy to see which two toppings were the favourite and we were able to say which one was more and which was the most popular.
We read Mr Wolf’s Pancakes to find out what happened when he tried to make pancakes. Can you remember what happened in the story?
You can see more about our learning if you look in our Floor Book.
You can imagine how excited we all were when we saw it was Pancake Day on the calendar! We decided that we just had to make pancakes 🙂
First there was lots of talking about pancakes and Lucas told us everything he knew about them.
We thought about how to make pancakes and the all important toppings.
Before we made our pancakes we had to write the shopping list and decide on our toppings. In Maths we had a vote to decide which were the five most popular toppings in Onyx class. Everyone voted by putting their cube on the topping of their choice. We counted up and found out which ones had the most votes. Hot chilli sauce was the most surprising option!
Everyone helped to make our pancakes following the recipe carefully then it was our favourite bit- eating them!!!
They were delicious! We did such a good job and we’re really glad we decided to make pancakes at school. Did you have pancakes at home this week? We’d love to know what toppings you had and how they tasted. Don’t forget to fill out a WOW moment to tell us what you’ve been doing.
