Cooking & Food




Rectangular Prism / Recap





Cc – Cooking / Ff – Food

With all our Pups having such great appetites, this theme is such a hit and so full of fun and learning! We spent a lot of time sampling, stirring, sprinkling, chopping, mixing, blending and licking!  

We are lucky to have such a well-equipped kitchen here at our school, and the kitchen staff love visits from our children and are always so obliging. We went for a visit to the kitchen earlier on in the week to see the ovens, the stove, mixers and blenders, all the pots and pans and the funny kitchen utensils! It was adorable listening to the children say things like “spatula” and “whisk”! Such lovely words to get little tongues around!  

While we were in the kitchen, we told the children that Teacher Thembi and Teacher Sonia make their delicious snacks and food each day! It was so cute to see their sweet little smiles when they realized that their food does not come from the shop. We said thank you very much! It is important to be thankful for the people who make your food, Pups!  

We all had so much fun this week learning all about cooking, but the highlight was making the pizza. This was tremendous fun to see the Pups rolling out their dough and building their little pizza’s a lot of the topping went straight into their little mouths. This was so cute to see after I told them don’t eat the cheese or the any of our pizza toppings.  

In the lead up to Christmas we are asking for you to bring in your decorated Christmas boxes that we will use to send home all your Pup’s Christmas stuff! Please try getting these in early to avoid a scramble…   

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas out there so please do not be surprised if your Pup comes home singing Christmas carols! We hope you have a lovely weekend.  

Next week’s theme: Travels and Holidays.
