Biscuit Baking


We have been very busy this week in Class 4 taste testing and baking biscuits. 

Chocolate chip cookies were our favourites!

Lots of you have been asking for the recipe to try at home.  I would love to see any photos of your home baking. Good luck bakers!


Basic Biscuit Recipe


  • 250g butter, softened
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour


  • Wooden spoon
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Sieve
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking tray


  1. Soften the butter in a large bowl using a wooden spoon
  2. Add the sugar to the butter and mix well until smooth (creaming)
  3. Add in the egg yolk and vanilla extract
  4. Sieve the flour into the mixture and stir until it is well combined
  5. Use your fingers to make sure the ingredients are fully mixed together (rubbing method)
  6. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin
  7. Use the cutters to cut out 10-12 biscuits
  8. Place on a baking tray and cook on 180°C for approximately 12-15 minutes




We have loved learning about fossils in Class 4.  Here are some of our own fossil impressions using salt dough.  Here is the recipe I used to make the salt dough if you would like to have a go at home: 


How to make salt dough

Makes 1 ball
Prep 10 minutes
Cook 3 hours

  • 1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)
  • half a cupful of table salt (about 125g)
  • half a cupful of water (about 125ml)


1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.

3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and shape into your chosen model. We moulded the dough into a circle and gently pressed shells and toy dinosaurs until it made an impression.

4. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid.

5. Leave to cool and then paint.



Class 4 had lots of fun in science this week making slime (and lots of mess) as part of our new States of Matter topic.  We looked at the differences between solids, liquids and gases and discussed how some materials behave like a solid and a liquid.  These are called non-Newtonian fluids, an example of which is slime.


We followed a recipe to make the slime and then played with it to see how it behaves like a solid and a liquid. Here are our results! 

Here is the link to the recipe I used to make slime:

Have fun!

British Science Week


As part of British Science Week, we have been learning all about connections.  Class 4 learnt about how the role of a Crime Scene Investigator is connected to the role of a Police Officer to help catch criminals.  We looked at our own fingerprints and learnt how Crime Scene Investigators searched for them as evidence to help the police with their work.


Class 4 then used art pencils and sticky tape to look closely at their own fingerprints. Do you have arches, loops or whorls?
