This week's resources are a mixture of revision and practical activities you can do with your brothers, sisters or parents. The lessons are provided by Hamilton Trust - all resources mentioned are in the documents. It might be useful to do the Mymaths lessons on Multiples, Factors and Short Division before doing the activities from Hamilton Trust. To access Mymaths, you only need the school login which we have used in class - if you are unsure of this, please email your teacher. 

There are also some fun practical activities for you to try out - you could even share your learning by taking photos or posting on the blog. 

Baking Chocolate Brownies

 

Miss Sowinski had a go at baking brownies recently and thought it would be good to share the recipe with you. Practise your measuring skills with some baking - ask an adult to help.

 

Try this yummy recipe for Chocolate Brownies by Mary Berry.

 

Ingredients

  • 275g unsalted butter (slightly softened if you working by hand or using a stand mixer)
  • 375g caster sugar or golden caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 75g cocoa powder
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 100g dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Measure out 275g of butter and leave out of the fridge to soften for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 160°C fan and line a roasting tin (30cm x 23 cm with roughly 4cm of depth) with baking paper.
  3. Mixthe soft butter, sugar, cocoa powder, self raising flour, chocolate chips and eggs in a big mixing bowl. Beat until evenly blended. 
  4. The mixture will be very thick. Spoon it into the baking dish, smooth it out and bake for 40-45 minutes. The cake should be set and a skewer or knife should come out clean but you also don't want to over bake because otherwise the brownies won't be squidgy.
  5. Cover loosely with tin foil for the last 10 minutes if it is browning too much. 
  6. Leave to cool in the tin (if appropriately squidgy it will collapse a little) before cutting into 24 squares and serving. 

 

Post a picture of these tasty treats and your measuring skills on the class blog!
