The Little Red Hen

In Junior Infants this week we have been learning to retell the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. To help us with this we created a story map and we also made some puppets of the different story characters.  We can now retell the story to others using these fantastic puppets.

Today we also baked some bread to see all the work that The Little Red Hen had to do by herself in the story. We really enjoyed our baking and because we helped each other and worked together we made some delicious and healthy brown bread…Yum yum!!!

Our Healthy Brown Bread Recipe


300g Coarse Wholemeal Flour

150g Plain Flour

1tsp baking soda

1 egg

2tbsp of Freederm Fruit Syrup

A pinch of salt

350ml Buttermilk


  1. Put the wholemeal flour in a bowl and then sieve the plain flour and bread soda in on top.  2. Add a pinch of salt and the fruit syrup. 3. Beat the egg slightly in a cup. 4.  Then add it along with the buttermilk into a well in the middle of the flour mixture. 5. Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a well greased baking tin. 6. Place in a preheated oven at 190 for around 35-40 minutes. 7. Allow to cool and serve with some delicious butter and summer fruit jam.



Today in Junior Infants we made our very own volcano erupt. We have been learning a lot about volcano and have learned some new vocabulary such as lava, boiling, erupt, active, dormant, extinct, ash…

To carry out our experiment we needed our volcano, some vinegar, baking powder and some red food colouring.  We mixed the vinegar and some red food colouring in a bottle so that our lava would be the same colour as real lave. Then we carefully put some baking powder into the middle of the volcano. After this we poured in the red vinegar and finally we counted down to the eruption. It was lots of fun and we will be building on this next week with some very creative art work 🙂
