STAY AND PLAY – IT’S PANCAKE DAY!

We just had to have pancakes on Pancake Day and who better to share them with than our Mums,  Dads friends and siblings!

We couldn’t have done it without our chief pancake maker – John the Janny and his secret pancake recipe!

What a feast we had, choosing toppings, spreading, chopping, licking.

Let’s get these pancakes started……

We all had a go in messy play…cracking, mixing, whisking, pouring, measuring, weighing – what a fun way to learn.

Messy play is so much fun! Especially when it’s with your friends.
Pouring, mixing, weighing, cracking, whisking…..so much fun.

Eeeeek….our pancake mixture feels so funny. “It’s cold”, “It’s lumpy”, “It’s cool”, “It’s gooey”.

Cracking eggs.

Decisions decisions….which toppings should we have?….

Mmmmmmmm

YUMMY!

And of course, pancake wouldn’t be complete without a friendly pancake flipping competition.  Drewie found using  whole body motor skills was the way to go….

Flipping pancakes needs concentration.

Others had amazing hand-eye co-ordination!

Whatever method they used – it was a lot of fun.

STAY AND PLAY DAY!

What a fantastic day we had yesterday with our parents, grandparents, siblings and friends at this term’s Stay and Play Day.

Everyone had such fun making helmets, shields and torches for SMUHA.  We even made an amazing galley for Nursery, with the help and skills of everyone.

Don’t let the marbles get away!

We were so lucky to have parents on hand to build our Galley.

And the sail is up!

Painting with marbles was great fun.

It was great that older siblings were able to come and join us too!

Lottie-Mae secured the tail of the Galley with Mrs Colvin.
Alec helped to make the sail for the Galley.

Huge thank you to everyone who came to join in our learning and making it such a fun day!
