Happy mother’s Day

To all the wonderful Mothers, Carers,

Grandmothers, Aunts, Sisters and

Thank you, for all you do for our amazing students.

We would like to extend our utmost respect and appreciation towards all of you. ..This day is a time to acknowledge the wonderful contributions and sacrifices you make on a daily basis in caring for and supporting your child.

We use this day to remember and celebrate the importance and significance of all motherly figures and the roles that they play.

We wish that we could be celebrating with you at school this year, but unfortunately with the current situation, we will admire you from afar.

Please enjoy our Mother’s Day resource pack, lovingly put together by the teaching staff at Hume Valley School.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Warmest regards

Mother’s Day Activities

We know that Mother’s Day will be different for us all this year, so we thought that we could make some suggestions of what activities could be done on this day.

Activity 1: Baking Together

Patty Cakes


200 grams of unsalted better

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

1 cup of caster sugar

3 eggs

2 ½ cups of self-raising flower, sifted

½ cup of milk


1. Place patty cake containers into 2 trays of 12 holes.

2. Preheat the oven to 180oC

3. Place butter, vanilla essence and sugar into a bowl. Use an electric beater to mix the ingredients until pale and creamy.

4. Add 1 egg to the mixture at a time, beating the mixture after each egg.

5. Add ½ the flour and ½ the milk and stir the mixture. Then place the rest of the flour and milk and stir the mixture again.

6. Fill your patty cake cups to 1/3 or 2 level tablespoons

7. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes

8. Stand cakes in the pans for 2 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.

Chocolate cake


270g (1 1/3 cups, firmly packed) brown sugar

185ml (3/4 cup) milk

125g butter, cubed

50g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

150g (1 cup) self-raising flour

2 tablespoons plain flour

3 eggs, lightly whisked


1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Brush a deep, square, 19cm (base measurement) cake pan (see tip below) with the melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base and sides of the pan with non-stick baking paper.

2. Place the sugar, milk and butter in a large saucepan. Use a fine sieve to sift the cocoa and bicarbonate of soda over the mixture. Place the pan over medium-low heat and use a whisk to stir until the mixture is smooth (don't boil the mixture). (See microwave tip.) Remove the pan from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

3. Use a sieve to sift half of each the self-raising and plain flours into the pan. Use the whisk to stir until the mixture is smooth. Repeat with the remaining flours. Add the eggs and continue to stir until well combined.

4. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and gently tap the pan on a bench to release any large air bubbles. Bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Set aside for 2 minutes before turning onto a wire rack. Set aside for 1 3/4 hours or until completely cool.


Basic Biscuits


250 grams butter at room temperature

125 grams (¾ of cup) icing sugar mixture

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

300 grams (2 cups) plain flour

70 grams (1/2 cup) of custard powder

2 tablespoons of milk


1. Place the sugar and the butter in a bowl. Using an electric beater, beat until pale and creamy. Add the vanilla essence and beat some more.

2. Add the flour, custard powder and milk and stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.

3. Place some flour on the bench and then knead the dough. Make the dough into a ball. Cover the dough with glad wrap and then place the dough into the fridge for 1 hour.

4. Preheat the oven at 160oC and line to baking trays with baking paper.

5. Place more flour on the bench, then using a rolling pin roll out the dough to 4 mm thickness. Use any shape cutter you like to make the biscuits.

6. Place the cookies in the oven and cook for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

7. Once done let the trays cool and then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool further.



3 cups of self-raising flour

Pinch of salt

1 cup cream

1 cup of lemonade


1. Preheat the oven at 220oC

2. Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl.

3. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour the cream and lemonade into it.

4. Mix with a butter knife so the mixture comes together.

5. Place some flour on your bench and then pour the mixture onto the bench. Knead until smooth and light.

6. Roll out your mixture to about 1 ½ cm thickness. Use a round cutter to cut out your scones.

7. Place the scones on a baking tray with baking paper on it.

8. Cook in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Activity 2: Scavenger Hunt around your backyard, house or neighbourhood

Activity 3: Dance Party at home

There is just something about dancing around the house to the sound of music that brings so many of us joy and sometimes even laughter.

Sometimes it can be the beat of the music, the words of our favourite song or the feeling that it gives us inside that has us motivated to dance around.

One thing for sure is that the benefits of dancing are endless.

Please see below some YouTube clips that will have you dancing all over the house.

Talk to each other.

1. How is your day?

2. How are you feeling?

3. What can we do together next week?

Go a different way to the way you would usually go.
