We made a class shop where each student got to purchase an item needed for our cookery lesson. Students were shown a photo of the item they had to purchase. Students then had to find the item in the class shop, bring then item up to shopkeeper Anne to see how much it cost. Students then handed over the correct coin from €1 or €2 in their wallet.

Students loved the activity and we had lots of fun using the class shop. What made it even more exciting was that we immediately used all the ingredients we purchased to make some yummy foods in cookery.

Food for every day of the week!

Our food theme has kept us extremely busy this term – from visiting a variety of different places to buy food on our community outings to making new food and trying/ exploring/ smelling a variety of new foods we haven’t tried before. We have used food for counting and with learning all our new food words we have been extremely busy!

Reading the very hungry caterpillar was by far our favourite activity this term!
