Smiles all round this week…

The Grade Twos had a great time in the Kitchen this week. There were smiles aplenty 🙂

Just like Becky we managed to come up with some creative ways to use 100s and 1000s. Our favourite was definitely Giant Freckle Biscuits!

Keeping busy…

As well as cooking in the kitchen each grade worked hard on completing an activity sheet based on the Giant Freckle biscuits. The ingredients were listed but illustrations of the method needed to be drawn. Here’s some of the Grade Twos hard at work.

Freckle Biscuits…

Just like Becky we keep coming up with ideas on how to use hundred and thousands in different ways. This week the Grade Twos hit the Kitchen to create a giant yummy FRECKLE BISCUIT

We thought you might like the recipe as with this cooking activity the freckle biscuits probably wont make it home!!! You can make giant cookies like we are, four to five a batch or make between 20 and 24 smaller ones.

5. Roll a heaped teaspoon of mixture into a ball, flatten and dip into hundred and thousands. You should get 24 biscuits. Place on baking tray and cook in oven for 10 mins or until firm, light and golden in colour.
