Fruit Rockets Reach for the Stars!
Dragonflies visit 'Hedgehogs Bakery' weekly and join in with preparing ingredients and making a delicious dish using a recipe card. Following on from talking about fireworks, the children were able to talk about their own experience of fireworks and relate it to the colours used in the fruit rockets.
Emma Hedge who runs the Hedgehog Bakery was really impressed with the children's design and efforts. They watched Emma model how to use a butter knife safety to cut the fruit smaller. They worked their fine motor skills using a pincer movement to thread the fruit onto the skewer.
Maths was also used to sort the fruit, classify it by colour and name. Mathematical language such as "more" was used and the children were encouraged to think about colour, shape, taste and critical thinking working out how many they could fit onto the skewer.
