How to make a sausage spider


Well, we’ve come to the end of another term and we cannot believe how quickly the time is flying by.  We are sure that you at home are as equally amazed at how much the children are progressing and it is only going to increase next term!

During this second term, every child has had the opportunity to develop their cookery skills in the kitchen with Mrs Potter.   They have been making sausage spiders.

First, the children cut the sausages using their knife skills and learned how to use the knife correctly.

Next, they developed their fine motor skills by threading uncooked spaghetti through the sausage pieces.  This needed very careful precision.

While the sausage spiders cooked, the children had the opportunity to discuss where food comes from (many children thought that milk came from Sainsbury’s so were surprised to learn it comes from a cow) and to think about which foods are healthy for us or unhealthy.

We were very pleased to see that all the children were excited to try their cooked products even if they were a bit unsure at first.

As the children announced at the end of our Nativity, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  See you in 2020!
