Ginger Bread Houses

This term we have been looking at Traditional Tales. This week we focused on the story of Hansel and Gretel. During our topic time over the course of the week we have made our very own gingerbread houses, just like the one in Hansel and Gretel. First we checked that we had all of the ingredients and then we followed the instructions to help us make our gingerbread. After we had put all of the ingredients in, we then rolled the gingerbread out on to some trays and used a template to help us cut the gingerbread into the correct shapes to make a house. The gingerbread then went into the oven to be baked. Once it was ready we then began to build our houses using icing sugar to help us stick the pieces together. Once we were confident our houses were strong enough, we then placed lots of sweets on to the house just like the gingerbread house in Hansel and Gretel. ​
