Today the children decided they would make something new and a little different. They looked through our ingredients and chose what they wanted to use.
“I think we could use Cornflakes I know they taste good, I have them for my breakfast”.
“What about some cherries, they are my favourite fruit and my favourite colour , red”.
“Yogurt is nice I have that for my lunch.”
“Raisins are my favourite, I want to use them.”
“ I like syrup it is sweet I want to. Put that into my cake.”
Everyone got to work crunching up the corn flakes using rolling pins. Then it was time to put our cornflakes into a bowl and add 1 teaspoon of syrup. “Only a little it’s not good for your teeth.”
“mix, mix mix”
The children carefully cut up their cherries using their fantastic fine motor skills. “1,2,3,4,5 I have 5 cherries”
Next it was time to add two tablespoons of raisins and mix it all together. “It’s a bit sticky” I will need to wash my hands after this.”
Finally, they then transferred the mixture to paper cases and added a tablespoon of dairy free yogurt.
“ I need more yogurt .” “ I think the cakes will taste yummy!”
It was time to put them into the freezer to set . The children worked well together and demonstrated good use of mathematical language, for example more and less. They also used lots descriptive language such as bumpy, crunchy, sticky. The children noticed that the texture of the yogurt changed after it came out of the freezer.
“It’s cold and hard now”
The children are so excited to finally taste their Crunchy Fruit Cups! Fabulous work everyone, well done!
