We made hedgehog bread rolls. The children enjoyed helping to measure the ingredients and each child then kneaded and shaped their own bread roll. They learned about why yeast is used and what changes take place. I think we have some splendid bakers in reception. The recipe is below if you would like to have a go at home.
As we continue to learn about animals that live in the forest we have enjoyed listening to ‘Owl Babies’. The children retold the story using pictures and puppets. They were keen to learn more about owls and found out what ‘nocturnal’ means.
We have had a wonderful first two weeks welcoming our new reception children into school. We have spent lots of time exploring the classroom and beginning to get to know each other. The activities this week have been linked to Goldilocks and the Three Bears which they children have thoroughly enjoyed.
It was great to welcome the new starters in school today, we can’t wait to get to know you all better in September. All the children enjoyed exploring some of the resources and most have painted a portrait in preparation for the Autumn term.
