Over the last two days, the children in Nursery have been making pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.
The children accurately measured their ingredients using electronic scales before mixing it all together in a bowl, ready to then be fried.
The children tasted a variety of toppings on their pancakes, some sweet and some sour. The toppings included: maple syrup, lemon and sugar, ice cream and chocolate buttons and marshmellows. Nursery’s pancakes were delicious!
Aside to our baking, children have also enjoyed becoming immersed in other pancake activities. On arrival to Nursery, the children noticed that the role play area had changed into the ‘Pancake Cafe’. The children have enjoyed taking orders in the café and pretending to flip pancakes!
We have also been reading, Jan Fearnley’s story – ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’. Mr Wolf fancies some tasty pancakes but he doesn’t know how to make them. He calls on his neighbours, to help him make his pancakes, however they all rudely refuse and Mr Wolf has to persevere and do it ‘all by himself’!
Following this story being read, the children were extremely excited to make a wolf mask, using a variety of materials. They all thought carefully about the parts of Mr Wolf’s face they need to include and the colours that would be appropriate to use.
