Delicious Butter Made By Years 1 and 2 Pupils
Have you ever wondered how butter is made? Well, on Friday the 15th of November 2019, Years 1 and 2 pupils of The English International School, Benin explored the process of butter production from cow’s milk cream. The children took turns in whipping the liquid milk cream and observed the liquid thicken at first, then fats began to separate from the liquid.
It was an exciting experience as the pupils observed and saw the formation of buttery yellow solids and a cloudy liquid appear!
We ate our butter with biscuits. Yummy!
On Saturday, 21st November, several children represented E.I.S. splendidly at the Batizado held at the Capoeira Centre in Haie Vive. Certain children were inspired to write about their experience in the practice of this Afro-Brazilian martial art/dance.
World Food Day was marked in school with good thought, reflection and plans for action.
The 2019 - 2020 E.I.S. Yearbook is ready to download.
We began in late March, stepping from 'stone to stone across the morass.' Thank you, teachers, parents and students for walking hand in hand to reach the other side.
