Today a group of us opted in Mrs Lunn's Scone workshop.  

First we put 2 Cups of self-raising flour into the bowl...

The we added 3/4 of a cup of Lemonade (not diet or the scones will taste funny)...

Then add 1/2 a cup of cream...

Stir the ingredients together and then kneed.

Put into an 18-20cm round on baking paper and cut into 8 wedges.

Bake at 220 degrees for 15-20cm


While we were cooking we also learnt about equivalent fractions.  We don't have a measuring cup for 3/4 of a cup and so we realised that if we used the 1/4 measuring cup we would just need to fill it 3 times!

Then when it came to measuring the cream Mrs Lunn asked us how we could measure the cream without using the 1/2cup.  We said we could use the 1/4 cup and fill it twice because we know that two quarters is the same as 1 half!  Mrs Lunn was impressed - we know equivalent fractions!  That is super big kid maths!  Go us!!!
