Our students learnt how to make pancakes with a basic recipe. They had fun and they got full. After they got ready all the ingredients and they went to the cooker, they realized that cooking is too much fun, And it could be so healthy for our body, even pancakes are not the best example for having a healthy diet.

Before they cooked the pancakes, they learnt a song to make the activity even more enjoyable!!

Pancake's Day

Know a little someone who loves a pancake or two? Make their day extra special and let them get their hands sticky in the kitchen too...
Blueberry pancakes
Pancakes are a lovely recipe for kids of all ages. There are different tasks each age group can get stuck into until eventually they have the confidence and skills to be able to make them from start to finish – just be prepared for some sticky ceilings. Once your pancakes are made, the options of what you can fill them with are endless from cheese and spinach to chocolate and bananas…

Flash of a pan

Cooking pancakes obviously requires handling a pan, our food editor Barney found that with children from the age of seven up, the safest way is to heat the pan, then take it over to the child – away from the heat – and let them add the batter.  Then it’s up to the adult to cook it on the stove until it’s ready for flipping. Then return the pan to the child – again, away from the heat – and allow them the joy of tossing the pancake.

Easiest-ever pancakes

Easiest-ever pancakes

If you are working with quite young children this simple batter is based on equal volumes of eggs, milk and flour so they can easily measure out the ingredients for themselves, and there is no need for scales. It also produces thick, beautiful pancakes that the kids can quickly get busy filling with all kinds of delicious things…  try laying out little pots of treats so little hands can have free reign – though it is always worth keeping half an eye on those sprinkles.

What does the "Bee" in 'Spelling Bee' mean?

As spellers from across the country and around the globe gather to take part in the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, let’s try to settle a basic question: Where does the bee in “spelling bee” come from?

Bee is derived from the Old English bēn meaning “a prayer, a favor.” By the late eighteenth century, bee had become commonly associated with the British dialect form, been or bean, referring to the joining of neighbors to work on a single activity to help a neighbor in need: sewing bee, quilting bee, etc. This derivation counters a long held belief that bee refers to the buzzing insect and the social nature of a beehive. The earliest printed reference to spelling bee dates back to 1825. However, children had been engaged in competitive wordplay for years beforehand. Frank Neuhauser won the very first Scripps National Spelling Bee in 1925 by correctly spelling gladiolus:
Any plant of the genus Gladiolus, of the iris family, native especially to Africa, having erect, sword-shaped leaves and spikes of flowers in avariety of colors.
Some other former championship words include:

  • Antediluvian: of or belonging to the period before the Flood.

  • Soubrette: an actress playing such a role.

  • Psoriasis: a common chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by   scalypatches.

  • Maculature: to mark with a spot or spots; stain.

  • CrustaceologyThe branch of zoology dealing with crustaceans. 

  • Smaragdine: of or relating to emeralds.
