Onyx class are lucky enough to be able to use the Bun Making Station as well during Learning Time. This is when we open up both classrooms and children get to choose where they do their learning. We love being able to follow the recipe ourselves to make the buns. The children are learning so much about Maths when they are making buns among lots of other things. They just see they are having fun though. This is when we believe the best learning takes place.
The recipe is taken from Anna Ephgrave’s books about learning in Foundation Stage.
Remember to remind the children how important it is to wash your hands first. You can’t bake a bun at school until your hands are washed!
We have introduced a Bun Making Station in Garnet Class. The children were given a recipe and were shown how to read it. Then they were encouraged to make buns independently.
Can you remember what you need to do?
What does balance mean? What does it look like?
Can you remember the ingredients you need?
We needed to place an egg on one side of the scales then measure out flour, sugar and butter. We needed to make sure each ingredient balanced with the egg, once we had all the ingredients in the bowl a grown up placed the mixture in a special cooker.
