Over the last few weeks, the children have been busily planning and organising an Afternoon Tea for their parents to say thank you to them and show them how much they appreciate them.
Children enjoyed writing an invitation to their parents to which they received the reply in the post!
Next, the children though about making a gift for their Mums for Mother’s Day. They decided to use their excellent hammering skills to produce some nail art.
The morning before the afternoon tea was very busy; the children used their cooking skills they have been learning over the last 2 terms to weigh and measure the ingredients to bake a sponge and chocolate cake.
Next came the sandwiches. The children learned the best methods for preparing cheese, ham and jam sandwiches and made over 200 tiny triangle sandwiches!
Finally, it was time to decorate the dining room ready for our parents’ arrival. The children helped to make beautiful flowers and bunting, filling the cake stands with the food and putting the final touches on the room.
Parents enjoyed a special performance of Spring Chicken and took part in some Makaton training! They learned lots of signs they can use at home to help communicate with their children.
The children had a lovely time and their parents said such kind things about the event!
