We made butter!

After reading, sequencing and retelling the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk' this week, the children were interested to talk about the types of food Jack and his mum could get from their cow.  The conversation ended in us talking about butter, so we finished the week by making some ourselves!

We split a pot of cream between two jam jars and took turns in shaking them.  The cream first thickened and then after a lot of shaking, it separated into the butter and buttermilk.  We ended the day with crackers and butter - well deserved after a week of hard work!
