Today we are learning about the meaning of ANZAC and why ANZAC biscuits were a vital staple to a soldier’s diet. We then went on to prepare the recipe and eat the tasty biscuits. The older girls Nevaya, Kirra and Zoe were making connections between their prior knowledge of numeracy and the utensils that they were using in particular the measuring cups and spoons. Nevaya, Kirra and Zoe had noticed that when the measuring cups were lined up next to each other it was sequenced in order from smallest to tallest size and that there were numbers printed on the cups. Zoe had made the connection that 2x½  cups equal one full cup. This meant that the older girls were doing the measuring whilst the younger children were mixing the ingredients and placing the batches on to a baking tray. Once the ANZAC biscuits were cooked then the children were waiting to sample their cooking.
