Apple crumble and Butter making

Second class have been very busy this week. We have been learning about the farm long ago and how the farmers had to do a lot of things by hand. After hearing this the class decided to try and make butter by hand. It was not as easy as it seemed but the children enjoyed trying to make it.

Later on in the week after learning about Autumn, the children made some apple crumble from freshly picked apples from a member of staff’s garden. The children had fun tasting the apple before peeling and chopping the apples and making the crumble. After baking it and cooling it the class loved tasting their baking.
