We are starting a topic on farms this week because I thought it would be good to link with Pancake day. Learning where our food comes from. Starting with milk, eggs and flour!
I offered up pancake making role play and also the farm set, books about farms and eggs, we made and ate real pancakes, weighing and measuring ingredients and next week we will visit a farm!
We talked about pancake toppings! Which were our favourites? What is a healthy choice and which toppings ate less healthy.
We talked about crops and what is needed for them to grow! How hard farmers work all year round to make food for us!
We are looking at magazines about small holding and farming. Reading books about farm animals, farming, and singing rhymes about farms!
