This morning we were talking about whether we are going to see any fireworks at the weekend, so we made firework toast for our snack! We painted our slices of bread, then toasted them and we enjoyed eating our masterpieces at snack time! 🎇🎆
Rockets had lots of fun making our own bread rolls today! The children helped weigh, measure, mix and knead the dough. We then let it rise and made our own roll each. The children really enjoyed making them. We also made a loaf which the children will enjoy eating for snack tomorrow 😋
Please see your child’s Tapestry account for more photos 🚀
This afternoon, we have made soup! The children did a good job of cutting up the potatoes and carrots safely. They then enjoyed eating it for snack! All children tried it and a couple wanted seconds! Yum yum 😋🚀
Earlier in the year, we planted potatoes and carrots, well today we decided to dig them up. The children were very excited to see how many potatoes we had managed to grow! Watch this space to see what we make with them! 🚀
