Topic

Let’s bake some yummy Fair-Trade Chocolate banana cupcakes.

 

Ingredients (Makes 12)

For the cake:

  • 100g butter, softened at room temperature
  • 140g Fairtrade soft light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 30mls whole/semi skimmed milk
  • 2 ripe Fairtrade bananas, well mashed
  • 190g self-raising flour
  • 25g Fairtrade cocoa

 

For the icing:

  • 140g butter, softened at room temperature
  • 280g Fairtrade icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp Fairtrade vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk

 

To decorate:

  • 12 banana chips
  • 4 x 32g packs of Fairtrade chocolate buttons

 

  1. Line a 12-hole cake tin with cupcake cases and preheat the oven to gas 4/180C/fan 160C.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar with a wooden spoon or with a mixer for about 4 – 6 minutes until really light and creamy looking.
  3. Add the eggs to the creamed mixture a dribble at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the milk, beat again.
  4. Fold the mashed bananas into the mixture using a large metal spoon. Then sieve the flour and cocoa over the top and fold in again with a metal spoon.
  5. When no traces of the flour or cocoa are visible, spoon into the cases equally and bake for 20 – 25 minutes in the centre of the oven until they’re well risen, a little cracked at the surface and a toothpick comes out of the centre of each cupcake clean.
  6. Cool on a wire rack, removed from the tin.

To make the icing:

  1. Beat the butter with a wooden spoon or electric mixer for about 5 minutes until light and creamy
  2. Then add the icing sugar 1 tbsp at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and milk, beat well for another 5 minutes to ensure the icing is really fluffy.
  4. Then spoon onto the cupcakes once cooled.
  5. Use a knife to spread an even layer over the top of each cake.

 

To decorate:

  1. Press a banana chip into the centre of each cupcake.
  2. Then push 12 chocolate buttons into the buttercream in a circle pattern, to look like petals.

 

Keep the cupcakes in an airtight tin, at room temperature for 4 days.

 

We can’t wait to see your cupcakes to year1@minetinfants.org.uk

Safer Internet Day

Today is Safer Internet Day 2021:  ‘An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world’.

We go online for lots of reasons including:

  • watching TV shows
  • playing games
  • watching online videos
  • talking to friends
  • finding out things
  • homework
  • online learning

 

The Internet can be loads of fun! BUT Who do you think owns the Internet?
Who do you think decides what can be put on to it?
Who makes sure the things on the Internet are truthful and real?

 

No one owns the Internet. No one decides what can be put on.
The Internet can be used by everyone and everyone can add things to it.
That’s why its so important to keep safe on line.

 

The Internet Owl – Be Kind Online

Please watch this video. You will need the username and password that has been emailed out to you.

 

Are you all sitting comfortably? Because it’s time to go on an exciting adventure into the Internet Jungle!

During this video, you will go on an interactive journey with the Internet Owl, and help him to teach all the animals in the Internet Jungle how to be kind online.

Toby Tiger is feeling upset about the unkind comments that his friends wrote on the picture he shared online. But do not fear! The Internet Owl swoops in to teach all the animals in the Internet jungle how they can be kind online.

After watching the video, we would like you to create your own ‘Be Kind Online’ Poster.

On your poster you can draw a picture of the animals in the story, and write down the important things you have learnt from the story.

Tuesday 5th January

In Science we want to learn about animals. By the end of our topic, you should be able to name some different groups of animals and be able to say which group an animal belongs to and why.

For this week, we would like to get you thinking about how animals are different.

 

  1. Sit down with a grown-up and see how many animals you can think of in 5 minutes. Write them down in a list or your grown-up can do it for you.
  2. Find the answers to some of these questions:
  • How many legs do they have?
  • Do they have wings?
  • What else do they have? Where do they live?
  • What do they eat?
  • What noise do they make?
  • How do they move?
  • What can they do?

 

  1. Can you sort your animals into 2 groups e.g.

Animals with 4 legs/Animals WITHOUT 4 legs

Animals with wings/Animals WITHOUT wings

Can you think of your own way to sort them?

 

  1. Choose one of your animals and write a few sentences about it.

 

  1. Draw a lovely picture of your animal.
