Remembrance Day Biscuits (sensory exploration)

Today we are going to do some baking! Don’t worry too much about the end product, it’s all about the process and having fun! Click add to show me your learning 😃 1. This part is all about demonstrating preference. Offer a choice of ingredients by holding them out or lining them up, and see which one they select either vocally or by looking towards or reaching towards it. 2. This part is all about exploration. When everyone has selected an ingredient, have a taste of them, smell them, feel them in a bowl or on a surface with your hands. Which way did everyone prefer to explore? 3. This part is all about comparison and demonstrating preference. Now try to explore the other ingredients in turn. Once you’ve explored the next ingredient, hold it out alongside the previous ingredient and see which one is selected, once again either vocally, by looking or reaching. 4. This part is all about demonstrating understanding. Hold up two of the utensils and name each one then ask pupils which they would use for the task you are doing. For example: “We are going to pour our flour, what do we need to put it in?” Hold out the bowl and spoon and see if pupils can select the correct utensil. Continue doing this for each step. “We are going to stir the mix, what do we need to stir?” and so on. If pupils are confident in this then leave a range of more than two utensils on the side and ask them which you need for the task. 5. This part is about the cooking element. If you now want to make the finished product together you can put it in the oven and enjoy exploring the finished product through tasting, smelling or feeling! 😀 Cookery sessions provide lots of ways to incorporate pupil’s Individual Learning Intentions as well. For example requesting more of an activity, showing preference, independently using utensils, identifying which utensils you need to use, following instructions etc. Most importantly, have fun! 😀
