We have been reading the story of the Gingerbread Man in Year 1. The children enjoyed the characters in the book so much, it inspired us to cook our very own Michael Faraday Gingerbread Men! We talked about what ingredients we might need to make the gingerbread mixture, and how important it is to make sure that we measure the correct amount. The children also put into sequence the events that we need to carry out before we start to cook.
First we washed our hands, and then we needed to heat the oven and grease the baking tray. The fun really started when we all had the opportunity to mix the gingerbread! Our Year 1 cooks were given the seal of approval at the end of the day, when all of the children were treated to Gingerbread Men (and a few women!) to eat. You can watch a video of the gingerbread cooking above.
