Cart Mill Coffee Shop

‘Here is your chocolate cake. I hope you lilke it.’

Over the last few weeks the children have been very busy preparing to open their own coffee shop. A group of children visited Costa Coffee to explore the kinds of things we would need. We had a  tasting test to see what kind of tea we would like to sell, and decided on blackcurrant and peppermint along with coffee and everybody’s favourite hot chocolate!

The children also wanted to make some yummy cakes to sell. We made these from a variety of art and craft materials and we all agreed they looked good enough to eat!

We have had great fun this week visitng our coffee shop and taking on the different roles of customers and waiters. We have been  taking orders in our notebooks, and serving drinks and food to our friends.

‘I will make your coffee nice and hot. The machine has sugar in it.’
‘ That will be £1 please.’
‘ I will take my coffee away to work.’
‘Mmmmm yummy hot chocolate.’
‘Here is your cake sir.’
‘I would like the pink cake.’

Our own Ada Twist!

The boys and girls decided today that they wanted to create their own life sized Ada Twist. They decided to draw around one of the other children and then using their observations from the pictures in the story they decided which colours they needed to use to decorate her.

Tomorrow we are going to discuss the different characteristics needed to be a Scientist and what type of person the children think Ada Twist would be.

”I need to use grey for her eyes”
”Ada has red polka dots on her dress”
”She has yellow gloves to keep her hands safe”
