The Elves and the Shoemaker
The children listened to the story of the 'Elves and the Shoemaker'. They then made biscuits in the shape of boots with laces.
They talked about some of the rules we have when cooking.
The first rule was that they must wash their hands before cooking so that their hands are clean (no germs).
Next we talked about keeping safe in the kitchen by not touching the oven because it is hot.
Finally we talked about using knives safely because they are sharp.
The children mixed up the different ingredients and made it into a dough. They then cut out the shape and watched whilst they were put in the oven to cook.
After the biscuits had been cooked the children used icing to make the laces.
