I have had quite a busy week so far enjoying the sunshine and I hope you have managed to get outside and enjoy it too. I have been doing some gardening and even found a frog!! Let me know if you have seen any animals/minibeasts.

Today I spent the afternoon baking and made some butterfly buns maybe you could make some too!! I'll post the recipe for you to have a go.


Butterfly buns:



  • For the cake
  • 2 eggs
  • 110g (4oz) self-raising flour
  • 110g (4oz) butter/margarine
  • 110g (4oz) Caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • For the icing
  • 220g (8oz) icing sugar
  • 110g (4oz) butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (fan)/200C (electric)/Gas mark 6
  2. Lay out 12 cake cases in a bun tin
  3. Mix the sugar, flour and baking powder together
  4. Add the butter/margarine and eggs
  5. Whisk all of it together
  6. Using a teaspoon, fill the cake cases with the mixture (be sure to give them a fair amount)
  7. Put the tray in the oven for around 15 mins or until they are golden brown
  8. Take them out of the oven and place on a cooling rack
  9. Make the icing by whisking the butter and half the sugar together, once they are mixed add the rest of the sugar and a dash of milk, continue whisking
  10. Use a sharp knife to cut a upside-down, shallow cone shape out the top of the cake, cut this in half. Fill the hole in the cake with icing and then place the cut out cake on top (like wings.) Sprinkle some icing sugar on top of your cakes

Hi class 6, 

I have had another busy day in the garden today weeding! Whilst I was gardening I came across some of the signs of spring. I saw the flowers blooming and even found some minibeasts hiding in the soil. Let me know if you find any. Maybe you could do some writing about what you find.
