Happy Easter from Ellemor 2

Standard

On Wednesday, we made Hot Cross Buns in our classroom.

DSC05232

Kids had to measure ingredients carefully, knead the dough and be patient while we waited for the dough to rise.

DSC05224DSC05225DSC05226DSC05227DSC05228

Then they had to think carefully about how to divide the dough into equal 16ths.

The buns were really yummy and worth the effort!

On Thursday, we used natural dyes to make some colourful Easter Eggs. We used fresh eggs from our Garden.

We used tumeric to make yellow, red and brown onions skins to make dark chocolate brown, tea to make light brown and red cabbage to make pink. We added vinegar to the water to help the dye to stick to the eggs.

We put stickers on some, and leaves and flowers on others to make beautiful patterns. We wrapped them in thin material so the dye could still get through. 

           

They looked so great and and by using only natural ingredients, we were still able to eat the eggs after we had enjoyed looking at them!

Later, Easter Bunny visited Ellemor 2 class. All the kids were outside playing at lunchtime, so he snuck in and filled up their Easter Baskets!DSC05308

When everyone came back inside there was a lot of squealing, and everyone was very excited to see their baskets full of chocolate eggs!

DSC05317

Easter Bunny left some extra eggs behind. So all the kids decided to make more baskets, then chose an adult working at the school to deliver some chocolate eggs to. It was a great way to make sure everyone got their Fair Share, and for us to say thankyou to all the teachers, canteen workers, office staff and Assistant Teachers who have helped us out this year in our classroom or the Garden. 

What a great couple of days!

Happy Easter everyone!
