This week WS, LS and I have been looking after the hens.
In the morning when we come into school we get the key from our classroom and go straight out to the garden to let the hens out. Before we go back to our classroom we need to check and see if they are making noise and that their eyes are clear, if so then we can go back to our classroom.
At ten to eleven we go back out to the garden and we put on jackets, gloves and wellies to do all of our jobs. We need to: collect the poo and put it in the composter, collect the eggs and put them in our classroom and check and see if there is enough food for the hens.
Then for the final time of the day we have to go back out at a quarter to three to put the hens back in the hen house. Then we fill out what we have done that day in our note book.
When we go back into our classroom we hand out the cartons of eggs to people who ordered them from our Gugalaí Gug Egg Company.
How To Cook Eggs
Before the Halloween break Mr O’Donnell brought us out to the garden to show us how to cook fried, scrambled and boiled eggs. Eggs are full of protein and can be eaten with every meal from breakfast to supper.
How to cook fried eggs:
Step 1: Heat up a small amount of oil in a pan.
Step 2: Crack an egg onto the pan.
Step 3: Cook on a medium heat for approximately one minute or until cooked to your liking.
How to cook scrambled eggs:
Step 1: Crack approximately 2-3 eggs into a bowl and whisk.
Step 2: Pour eggs into a warm saucepan.
Step 3: Place the saucepan on a medium heat and stir the eggs continuously until they reach a light fluffy texture.
How to cook boiled eggs:
Step 1: Get a small saucepan of water to boiling point.
Step 2: Add a pinch of salt and your egg
Step 3: Boil the egg for approximately 1-2 minutes for a soft boiled egg, or longer for a hard-boiled egg.
We all got to try a boiled egg at the end of our lesson and they tasted eggcellent!
