Messy Monday Today, Try some sensory Play with you little ones.

Sensory Play

From birth to early childhood, children use their five senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them.

It’s an important part of early childhood development, and providing opportunities for children to actively use their senses as they explore their world through ‘sensory play’ is crucial to brain development.

Learning through sensory exploration comes naturally to babies and young children, which makes sense when you consider that the skills they’ll come to rely on to build an understanding of objects, spaces, people and interactions are yet to be fully developed.

As adults, our senses provide us with vital information that we use to inform decision making thousands of times a day. We may take this ability for granted and barely notice it, but it’s for this reason that helping children to learn about their own senses is so important.

Watch this video on our play list to get some great ideas:

Feel good Friday this week with Carole from our Knowle team, She has been cooking with her grandchildren, Follow the link to this weeks playlist and see how they have been having fun making their very own Pizza even including the dough!


Why pizza makes you feel good!
You might notice that foods containing salt, fat, and sugar often seem like the most appealing options. As it turns out, human brains are wired to desire energy-rich foods that will keep you full longer as a survival tactic. Your brain releases dopamine, a reward-driven neurotransmitter, at merely the thought of eating food like pizza. This is why it physically feels great to think about, see, and eat pizza.

Before making pizza, you need to make sure you have the following ingredients plus your chosen toppings.

Recipe makes 2 small pizza's or 1 large.

To make this recipe you'll need:
270gr all purpose flour
2tsp sugar
Pinch of salt
4 gr instant yeast
2tbsp olive oil
165ml warm water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until a dough forms. Knead the dough for at least 5 minutes, then form a ball of the dough with your hands. Take a clean bowl and cover it in a light layer of olive oil. Put the dough in the bowl and add a light layer of oil on the dough as well to prevent it from drying out. Cover the bowl with a towel and let the dough rise for 1 hour. Once risen take the dough from the bowl and cut it in half to make two pizza's. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Once the pizza is rolled out, form a crust with your hands if you want. Lightly oil the pizza and poke some holes in the bottom with a fork to prevent air bubbles. Top the pizza with your favourite toppings.
Bake the pizza in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes on 210 degrees celsius. Enjoy!

Now watch this video we have found to share with you also, on how to make the pizza. It is really quick and easy, except for waiting for hour for the dough to rise.


Yummy! Have fun and we would love to see how your own creations turn out!
