Last week lots of the children were busy making picnics with their friends so this week we had a real teddy bear’s picnic! The children decided they would like buns and pizza for their picnic and we wrote a letter home to bring in our teddies.
We wanted the children to be able to join in with the process of cooking and baking so we found an easy peasy pizza dough recipe that the children could do themselves.
We also used a mini-oven so we could watch the pizzas cook and talk about the changes.
As well as making pizzas we worked together to bake buns for our picnic too. We have been learning our numbers to 10 and that helped us to read our recipe. We used the numbers and pictures to follow the recipe ourselves.
Then we took our pizzas and buns and went to the secret garden for our teddy bears picnic!
We love seeing your photos of baking and cooking together at home. Baking activities are a great way to learn about numbers and measures as well as learning about changes and how to keep ourselves safe.
