The oranges and strawberries had a great time investigating in the woods. They enjoyed finding out where animals hibernate, climbing trees and having fun outdoors. We even found a skull. We had the best day ever!
This morning, Mr Alcock’s class have done a fantastic job of creating their peach cobblers. The children showed an excellent understanding of food hygiene, knowing key why we wash hands, tie hair back, wear aprons and clean our work surfaces.
The children then showed super skill when cutting the peaches, measuring ingredients and mixing the ingredients together to make the crumble topping. Delicious!
Yesterday, Mrs Hassall’s class demonstrated their culinary skills making some amazing peach cobblers – putting our fantastic technology room to good use! Firstly, the children practised their cutting skills, carefully slicing peaches for the filling. Next, they carefully measured and weighed flour, butter and brown sugar for the crumble topping. The children must have read the scales very well as the crumbles were a huge success. To top it off, they also washed all of the dishes, tidied up and followed all of our food hygiene rules! I’m sure you’ll agree the children did a fab job and the cobblers looked delicious!
On Friday, the children were very excited to receive their very own recorder to use over the next term in our music lessons. We’ve learned the first positions and even played along to backing track. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the next lesson this Friday afternoon to see what we’re learning next!
The Apples and Pears have been learning all about Winter. We have shared some Winter stories, made Jack Frost wands and collages. The children also learnt all about Artic animals and made polar bear headbands. We looked around the school environment for signs of Winter and recreated Jack Frost patterns in the ice and enjoyed listening to the ice crunching under our feet.
This afternoon in Year 2, children used an atlas with their partner to find the Sahara Desert. Did you know that deserts aren’t just hot? Antarctica is also a desert.
This half term Year 1 are discovering all about puppets. How they are made, how they move, how to design one and finally making one!
On Wednesday we had fun operating different styles of puppet and discussed how they were made. Ending the afternoon with taking one apart to understand their design.
