Reception children have really enjoyed out theme ‘Food Glorious Food’ this half term. We finished by reading the book ‘Little Red Hen’ and learning how flour is made from wheat. The children asked to make bread like in our story so we spend a day making our own! First we learnt about yeast and the importance of adding that to help the bread rise. We learnt how to knead the bread to activate the yeast before leaving it in a warm spot to rise.
After kneading and leaving the bread to rise twice we finally cooked it and enjoyed eating it warm with butter and jam! It was a thumbs up all round!
This week we have also been learning about doubles in Math. Look at our amazing number sentences!
We continue to practice our problem solving and team work skills by working together to build models and complete puzzles.
