On Tuesday 22nd March Mrs de Koning worked with half our class in the classroom, reading our poem of the week She also let us work on the ActivBoard, Listening Post, Library and I Pads. We practised our Reading and built up our stamina and mileage.
The rest of the class went with Mrs O’Grady, Mrs B and Mrs Green into the Tech Room. We read through the recipe and looked at the ingredients for Hot Cross Buns. We liked smelling the spices and seeing the flour, sugar, milk, baking powder, raisins and butter.
First we sifted the dry ingredients into he bowl. Each of the three groups made their own. There were about five students in each group, so we could see very clearly and help with the baking. Because the real Hot Cross Buns take a long time – they have yeast in which has to rise twice we decided to make Hot Cross Scones!
We followed the recipe to make sure we were doing the right thing. We wanted the scones to look right and taste right.
We made sure that we had clean dry hands before we started to cook. We used lots of different utensils.
The groups swapped around and the baking started all over again. As we left the Tech Room we could smell the spicy scones cooking in the hot oven…mmmm!
The next day we did our Oral Language Story writing. We recalled all we had done the day before. We talked about the colour, shape, size, tecture and position of the scones. Mrs de Koning wrote the story down. Then we listened to a YouTube clip about making simple Hot Cross Buns adn talked about the ways they were the same, and ways they were different to our Hot Cross Scones.
You might like to listen to it at home and make some Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday. Also our Hot Cross Scones recipe is on our Scrap Book. Please read it through with us…..
