Baking Cakes 🎂
The children have really shown an interest in making play dough birthday cakes and acting out birthday celebrations with the stacking cake in the role play house so we decided to follow this interest and bake cakes. The children all learnt how to use the balance scales to balance the flour, sugar and butter with an egg to get the amount needed then mixed it all together. Once cooked the cakes tasted delicious!
On a Monday morning we enjoy learning ICT skills on the laptops. Today was our first lesson. We learnt how to open the laptops, turn them on/off and practised using the mouse pad.
On Friday we decided to take the parachute into the hall and have some fun. We really enjoyed whipping the ball up and down on the parachute and running underneath it.
The children had a great time making apple crumble in the kitchen this morning. They followed a recipe and knew to wash the apples and their hands to get rid of any germs. When asked they were able to talk about where the apples came from and use language structures to talk about how they made the apple crumble.
Whilst learning outside we noticed the trees in our orchard had ripe apples on. We decided to pick them to make apple pie and apple crumble with next week.
We had a great first day at Greenfield. The children made lots of new friends, learnt the classroom rules and routines and enjoyed exploring all the areas. All the Reception children also went into the hall for lunch. Take a look at the photos below.
