The Science of Bread making!!

This week we have been working on making choices – by selecting our favourite characters from the film ‘Inside Out’ using pictures, sensory bottles and the oil mats.

We also been working on our numeracy skills using the Switch IT Games and colourful objects to count. Jacob enjoys the Switch IT games, Reece and Jessica love working together.

We continued with our Cloudy with a chance of meatballs theme this week and made Cheesy Rolls – yummy!!!  The dough proved – got REALLY BIG – the Science bit!!! we kneaded it, added the cheese and baked it.

An Egg-cellent Cooking Session!

In cooking this week, all the boys in Transition were eggs-tra Confident Individuals when choosing what they would like to make. Everyone chose what their favourite types of eggs are and whether they’d like to use bread or a roll. We had scrambled eggs, fried eggs, an omelette and even some French toast. Everyone had a cracking time and enjoyed an eggs- quisite brunch in cooking.
