This morning was our Big Board Game Day Workshop. We invited parents to come and play and make board games to help raise money for NSPCC.
We made our own board games with numbers to ten and played board games too.
Board games are a great way to help teach turn taking, counting and matching colours. Different board games can help to teach different skills too. We focused on numbers to ten in our board games to help the children with counting skills.
You can download and print the games we played today here – board games. You can use anything you want for counters like use small toys, characters or even pebbles.
Thank you to everybody who came, find out more about the great cause you are supporting with Big Board Game Day here
After our fizzy apple experiments there were still lots of apples left over so we decided to make apple crumble.
First we decided how many apples we could need. We counted the children then counted out apples for the crumble, we added a bit extra so the grown-ups could try some too!
Then we cut the apples into small pieces. We had to be very careful when we used the knives so we took it in turns and told our friends how to hold them safely.
Once all the apples had been cut we put them in a bowl and sprinkled a little sugar on them.
Next it was time to make the crumble. We followed the pictures on the recipe and mixed the right amount of butter, sugar and flour together.
After that we had to make it crumbly. We pinched it with our fingers and rubbed it together to make it crumble into little pieces. We all took it in turns to make the crumble.
When we had made the topping we sprinkled it over the apples in the bowl. We had to make sure all the apples were covered. Finally it went in the oven to bake. Once it was cool we all had a taste, it was delicious.
