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!
Well, after collecting our resources last week, this afternoon we have created our mini woodlands. We were all so excited and very proud of the end result. We are now going to be using them to create a map with a key. Well done Mrs Stillwell’s class!
As our topic this half term is ‘The Enchanted Woodland,’ we have been outside again to collect materials to make our very own mini woodland next week. You can tell by our faces that we had an amazing time. Have a look at our blog to find out more.
This afternoon, Year 2 have celebrated the Big Bad Pig turning into a friendly character in our latest version of The Three Little Pigs. At the end of the story, the Big Bad Pig sang and danced with the three little wolves using his own tambourine. The children have made their own fantastic tambourines and have even attached their own bells. Great job!
After reading the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ we decided to make our own pumpkin soup! We wrote a list of ingredients which included parsnips, onions, turnips, carrots and of course a pumpkin! There were mixed reviews amongst the children but there was a delicious smell in our classroom.
Year Three have been busy this half term designing some different clothes for the Flintstones! They have learned to make their own templates and use the templates to cut a piece of material accurately, to thread their own needles and how to use three different stitches. I was really impressed with the children’s resilience when problem solving and their independence! I think the parents, carers and friends of the children will be impressed with their finished outfit! We have these up on display for you to see on Open Evening!
