I spent a brilliant morning last week with a Year 1/2 class delivering my ‘To Infinity & Beyond’ cookshop. The very first comment I heard from a child was “Oooh this looks fun!” . In my book it doesn’t get better than that!
All the children loved the story telling and then got completely stuck in to the cooking activities.
Erupting moon cake!
We made erupting moon cake which was a great activity to practise some of their kitchen skills – measuring, mixing, greasing… It also gave us a super opportunity to talk about different moons. We made two cakes and one cake was completely devoured at snack time – a total eclipse!!!
We then set about making rocket dogs, fruity rockets and I also had a craft table where the children could design their own moonscape or alien.
It was a really busy morning full of learning and fun. Perfect!
