Half term fun!

Hello to all the year 1 children and their families! We hope you are all well and keeping safe. Well done for completing a whole term of home school learning. Please do not worry if you have not been able  to complete all the activities, the most important thing is that your child is happy and well.

 

As it is half term this week please see below a range of fun activities aimed at keeping children busy and entertained. You and your child can choose which activities they would like to try.

Brighten up your lunch times and have a go at making these fun sandwiches!

Rainbow sandwich.

 

Rainbow cheese toasties

Serves: Makes 1 toastie

Ingredients

2 slices medium sliced white bread, buttered on both sides

40g cheddar, grated

60g grated mozzarella

Natural food colouring gels - pink, green, blue and yellow

Method

  1. First butter both sides of the bread. Mix both the cheeses together in a bowl

  2. Preheat your frying pan or turn on your toastie machine or panini press, if using

  3. Put 25g of the cheese mix into each of four bowls. Colour each bowl a different colour, by adding a few drops of food colouring into each bowl and mixing well with teaspoons.

  4. Place the first piece of bread down on top of a piece of greaseproof paper and lay horizontal rows of each different coloured cheese onto your bread - each row should be about 2-3cm wide depending on the size of your piece of bread. Place the other slice of bread on top, then top with some more greaseproof paper and press down using your hand.

  5. Lift the sandwich, remove the bottom piece of baking paper and place into your hot toastie machine, then remove the top paper. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until it is golden brown on the outside and the cheese has melted inside - if cooking in a frying pan, flip the toastie over every minute or so.

  6. Once ready to serve, slice diagonally with a sharp knife - leave to stand for 10-15 seconds and pull apart to create the rainbow cheesy effect

TIPS

The trick to cutting the toastie open and getting the rainbow effect in the cheese, is to cut it once it’s ready and leave to cool for about 15 seconds before pulling apart, that way you will see the rainbow cheesy effect.

How to make edible slime....... yum, yum laugh

 

 

MARSHMALLOW FUNFETTI SLIME

Ingredients

150g mini marshmallows (I used white but you can use a mixed pack if you wish your slime will just be a light pink instead of white)

80-90g cornflour plus extra for dusting the surface

50g icing sugar

50g veg oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

Cake sprinkles (optional)

Method

  1. Melt the marshmallows in a large heatproof bowl in the microwave for 30-50 secs, until melted, stirring after 30 seconds

  2. Stir in the oil and vanilla, mix well and then stir in the cornflour and mix again

  3. Add icing sugar and stir in and now knead until flexible. If it feels a little sticky, add in the rest of the cornflour.

  4. Use extra cornflour for the surface if you need to, having a little veg oil to hand is good to keep your hands sticky free. Knead and play. Add some cake sprinkles for a funfetti effect!

JELLY SLIME

Ingredients

100g Cornflour

2 sachets sugar free jelly (lime or strawberry is nice for a green or red colour)

70g warm water

Method

  1. Combine the powders in a bowl with a fork, stir in the water. It might seem a little solid but after a lot of kneading (with your hands) it becomes good stretchy consistency for playing with.

  2. There are a range of different fruity jelly flavours to choose from, so can be pink (raspberry) red (strawberry) or green (lime)

 

 

CHOCOLATE SLIME

Ingredients

100g Cornflour

20g cocoa powder

95g coconut milk

Method

  1. In a bowl, dry whisk the cocoa into the cornflour

  2. Gently warm the coconut milk, then pour over the powder, stir well. Get your hands in and knead it until it comes together and is like stretchy play dough.

  3. This one is perfect for making all sorts of shapes, especially the poop emoji!
