Macmillan Coffee Morning

Standard
Macmillan Coffee Morning

We can give the money to poorly people then if they’re better they can sell it to the grown-ups and make the other people better (Lois, Age 3)

This week is Macmillan coffee morning. We thought about why we were raising money and why it is important to help other people.

What does selling mean? 

Tyler – You sell from shop

Lula – Get money

Millie – Sell something you want like eggs and sausages

What could we bake? 

Lillie – Biscuits, mummy and daddy use flour, butter, sugar and a bit of salt and they cut it and they bake it

Gracie – We can get ingredients

Tia – Teachers put them in oven coz kids fingers get burnt

Sophia – Invite mummy and daddy and Summer to get them

Why are we raising money? 

Lacey – For poorly people

Asaad – For medicine from the doctor

Lois – We can give the money to poorly people then if they’re better they can sell it to the grown-ups and make the other people better

 

First we thought about our ingredient list and recipe. We counted what we needed and used pictures to help make our recipe. Then we practised following recipes by making magic mixtures and counting out spoonfuls of sand and beads.

Next it was time to go the shops, our parents came with us on a little trip to the shop and we followed our shopping list, chose ingredients and paid for what we needed.

Then it was time to bake! We carefully followed our recipe to make cookies and baked them in the oven.

We hope that we have raised lots of money for a great cause. Thank you to all the parents who donated money and joined us on our trip to the shops, thank you!

Update – Our Muddy Puddle Walk raised an amazing £306.50!

Thank you for all your sponsors!

This week was our Muddy Puddle walk for Save the Children. Have a look at our video…

We went on a walk all around school, up and around the secret garden and around the new pitch at the top of our school, it was a long way for little legs!

On the way we looked out for Peppa Pig and his friends hiding all around.

It was a lovely sunny day but we still wanted some puddles so when we got to the top of the hill we tipped out buckets of water and jumped in the mud!

When we got back we raised even more money by having a bake sale for parents and teachers. We had lots of fun and raised money for a great cause.

How can you continue learning at home?

We have talked a lot about charity this week and how there are people who aren’t as lucky as us. Everybody really wanted to look after other people and thought about ways we can help people. There were lots of questions and ideas about how we can help others.

You could talk to your grown-up about what charity means

At home you could think about ways to help others like your family and friends

You could donate old toys or clothes you no longer want

You could go on your own walk to somewhere new

You could bake buns or cakes at home

Elephant Baking

Standard
Elephant Baking

This week we have been doing some elephant themed baking ready for Macmillan Coffee Morning (Today) and Grandparent’s Afternoon Tea (on Monday).

We decided to make elephant cake pops. They were a bit messy!

First we crumbled up cake and mixed it with frosting. Then we rolled it into balls and popped it in the fridge.

 

After that we melted white and blue chocolate over a candle so the children could watch it change. Then we dipped the cake pops in and added buttons and icing for the elephant’s face.

 

 

After a few melted elephant faces we also made some sparkly cake pops…

Then we made Elmer biscuits. We mixed our ingredients and rolled them out and cut them into elephant shapes.

Once they were baked we decorated them with icing sugar and smarties.

Once all our baking was finished we took them to be sold for Macmillan Coffee Morning and bought some of our own!

We had a lovely time baking. We hope everyone enjoyed our elephants!
