Today in the Home Room we had a look at some recipes and chose to make scones. We gathered up the ingredients, some were in the cupboards and some in the fridge.
We carefully measured out the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. We checked the numbers on the scales to see when the spoonfuls of flour reached 300g . We talked about the different sizes of spoons as we needed 2 tablespoons of sugar, but only one teaspoon of baking powder. Then we added the oat milk .
Today we added cherries to our scones. We discussed our safety rules when using a knife and then carefully cut up lots of cherries to add to our mixture.
We developed our fine motor skills by using the rolling pins and cutters to make the scones. We counted out the number of scones we had each made and put them on the oven tray ready to bake.
We took the scones to the oven. We discussed the oven being very hot and this part has to be done by a adult. Our scones need to be in the oven for 15 minutes, so let’s check the clock!⏰ Our scones are ready and they look very tasty.
Now it’s tidy up time! We worked together to put our ingredients back in the cupboards and fridge, swept the floor and wiped the table.
We are looking forward to trying out our scone recipe again!
