Year 2 Tasting

Easy Blog Photo
To help us design our own disgusting sandwich (inspired by Mrs Grinling’s mustard sandwich from The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch) Year 2 have been investigating the taste of lots of different foods today. The aim of the investigation was to find the most revolting ingredients for our sandwich (to keep the seagulls away) and to explore different adjectives which we can later use to describe our creation. Whilst the children had great fun, they weren’t too impressed with the foods on offer! Chilli powder, jalapeños, piccalilli, garlic powder, curry powder and marmite are definitely not firm favourites for the children! Let’s hope that the seagulls feel the same way!

Year Three Photo Frames

This half term, Year Three are designing and making their own photo frames! We have learned some of the skills needed by making a mock frame from scrap materials! We had lots of fun and can’t wait to start making the real frame!

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch

What a super morning we’ve had in Year 2! Today we were so concerned about Mr Grinling’s seagull problem that we decided to design our own ‘seagull-proof’ container! The range of fantastic ideas that the children came up with were amazing. I particularly loved Ashton’s bird seed idea. Ashton covered his container in bird seed so that the seagulls would eat the seeds rather than Mr Grinling’s lunch! Well done Year 2, your ideas and designs are fantastic.

The children enjoyed a visit from City Catering yesterday afternoon. Not only did they learn how each food group benefits their body but they also created their own ‘superhero’ vegetable character that they would like to see in their lunch box or on their plate.
