Coinciding with their scrumptious topic, Chocolate, they learnt the instructions for making chocolate cornflake cakes, and what better way for them to check that they are able to learn and follow instructions than to make chocolate cornflake cakes.
After creating story maps showing how to make the delicious chocolate treats, the children took a copy of their story maps home to learn last weekend and were surprised when they arrived at school on Monday to find out that they would indeed be making their own chocolate cornflake cakes.
The children in each of the classes worked collaboratively to carry out the instructions, first checking that they had all the equipment and ingredients needed.
Walking down the Year 2 corridor on Monday, all one could smell was the delightful scent of melted chocolate. The children (and the teachers) couldn’t wait to eat the chocolate delights.
After making the chocolate cornflake cakes, they were cooled in the fridge before being devoured by some very excited Year 2 children.
