Every Friday is making and bake were we make something to snack on. With that the learner learns about measuring and also the different textures of food.

Entrepreneur’s day

We will do an entrepreneurs day every second Friday. Where each class has to bring either chips, sweets or cupcakes. Then the other children must bring a R2 to school to buy from the selling class. All the money made from the sales will contribute to making and baking.
