Cooking Cakes

In Little Ossies this last week we had an opportunity to practice our cooking skills, making some delicious cakes for a celebration!

We had to gather all sorts of special ingredients so that everyone in Little Ossies was able to eat the cakes. We followed a recipe, looking at the number of items, measuring the ingredients and of course making sure that there were enough cakes for all the Little Ossies to eat.

We collected all the ingredients and started following the recipe instructions.

The Little Ossies worked out that there wasn’t an oven to cook the cakes in our classroom, so we had to take them over to the oven in the staffroom.  The Little Ossies must have heard that teachers really like to eat cakes, because a there were a few children who were quite concerned that the teachers might eat the cakes in the oven and then there would be no cakes left for any Little Ossies!  So some Little Ossies decided to make some signs to say “Stop” and “No touching the cakes”.

Luckily no teachers ate any of the cakes, so we were all able to eat one. They were scrumptious!

Houses for teddy

The teddies certaily had a wonderful time at school with us this week. We read stories to them, counted collections with them, taught them how to write some of our golden words and of course we snuggled and played with them too.

After comparing our teddy length to other objects in our classroom we then carefully measured our teddies using cubes so that we could select a ‘good fit’ box to build a house for each teddy.  The stick of cubes helped us to measure and choose the box that teddy was sure to fit in. We had a fun time with our teddies and helped each other with good ideas for our teddy-house constructions too.CIMG5780 CIMG5790 CIMG5791 CIMG5792 CIMG5794 CIMG5797 - Copy CIMG5798 - Copy CIMG5799 - Copy CIMG5822 CIMG5823 CIMG5824 CIMG5825 CIMG5826 CIMG5827 CIMG5828 CIMG5829
