Ready, set, bake!

Friday 20 October 2023

We’ve been cooking up a storm in our St.James kitchen!

The children followed a recipe to make their own Hedgehog bread. We observed the process of how the ingredient yeast can make the dough rise. We covered our dough to keep it warm and waited to see how big it would grow. We then shaped the dough into hedgehogs and used raisins to make their eyes.

This weeks story we have been reading was ‘ The room on the broom’ by Julia Donaldson. A definite favourite across nursery these week! We’ve been potion making and re-telling the story using props. We’ve also been exploring pumpkins, their shape, colour, texture and even taste!

In case you’re wondering it was delicious! The children said it tasted sweet and it was yummy.

We will be making our own wind chimes this week whilst we are exploring weather and seasons. If anybody has any spare ‘bits and bobs’ they no longer want/need we would really appreciate them in nursery.


The rest of school will be having their parent teacher consultations this week. Nursery won’t be joining this one as ours is later on in the year, when the children have had more time to settle.

Have a happy and healthy weekend, hopefully the storm will of passed!
