Run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man.

Date: 16th Jan 2017 @ 4:41pm

We have been enjoying the story of the Gingerbread Man at nursery so on Monday Mrs Taylor and Miss Campbell decided that we should make some real gingerbread men as we enjoy baking so much.

We measured out and mixed the ingredients. First cream the sugar and butter. Then mix in the egg.


We learned how to sift the flour by tapping the seive gently. Then mixed in the butter to make a dough.


Next we rolled out the dough and cut out a gingerbread man with the cutter. We decorated them with smarties.


We put them in the oven whilst we tidied up and washed the pots.

Once we had tidied up we went to the oven to check if our gingerbread men were ready. We were feeling excited and the smell was making us hungry.

To our surprise when we opened the oven the gingerbread men were not there! We even looked in the cupboards and the fridge but they were nowhere to be seen.


We got together to discuss what we thought might have happened.

Come back tomorrow to find out if we found our Gingerbread men!
