In support of our ‘All About Me’ theme, we asked the children for ‘cooking ideas’. The overwhelming favourite – chocolate cake!! We decided on chocolate fridge cake. The children measured the chocolate, butter and golden syrup which involved lots of comparisons and the use of mathematical language including more, full and enough. We particularly enjoyed ‘bashing’ the biscuits whilst an adult melted the chocolate mixture before we combined all of our ingredients. The children then selected from marshmallows and raisins to complete their cake. Although there was a little nibbling during preparation there was enough cake left to be enjoyed together at our teddy bears picnic.
