Today we have made a sweet potato recipe used during the war. After several tasting tests, some very strange facial expressions and a class vote, I’m not sure there will be a high demand for the sweet potato spread in Year 6. Well done everybody for giving it a try.
Boys from Year 4 took part in a Football Festival at Crescent Academy this afternoon. After wins against Eaton Park and Moss Park, and a draw against Crescent Acadmey, the Sandford Hill team finished top of the group and won a fantastic trophy and now progress to a finals tournament in the Summer term. A huge congratulations to James, Ethan, Alfie W, Mason, Elliot, Alfie H, Jack and Ryan who not only played brilliantly, but were fantastic role models for the school too.
Well done boys!
Year 6 have made and tasted a recipe used to make a sweet spread used instead of jam during the war. The ingredients were a bit strange: cold mashed potato, cocoa powder and sugar! When we’d mixed the ingredients, we spread it on bread and braved the taste. Some children loved it and ate the bread and what was left in the bowl while others said it was like a ‘bush tucker trial’. Try it out – see what you think!
It would appear that our cheeky elf is desperate to be a part of our Christmas Nativity scene this year! We arrived in our Year 2 classroom this morning to find him dressed as Mary and holding the Star of Bethlehem! We found this hilarious but some of us were a little worried about keeping our parts in our Christmas performance! Panic over though, the props have been returned to their rightful owners and we even had time to complete the elf grammar challenge too! What an exciting morning!
The Nursery children have been learning about Winter and changes in the seasons. We have looked at animals that live in very cold places. Can any of your children remember the names of any animals? They have drawn fantastic penguins, painted super snowmen, assembled snowmen that are hanging so beautifully in our nursery and finally we are making snowmen biscuits. We would love to hear which activities your child has enjoyed.
Well done children you have been superstars!
