Take a look at the amazing Autumn selfie that Oscar completed for his half term home work project.
His Mum is a photographer, listening to her guidance Oscar sat the camera on a tripod, set the timer, then posed perfectly for his selfie. At home he uploaded the photograph, edited and printed his work!
Oscar your Mum and I are so proud of you for all the thought and effort you put into this project. Totally amazing!
Well done you are a selfie superstar 👍
What would Paul Hollywood think? I’m sure we’d have lots of his famous handshakes if he could have judged our bread designs today. The children used some interesting ingredients to create truly delicious bread: strawberry and chocolate… pineapple… apple… They were all delicious! Well done, Guys!
There was a lovely smell in EYFS on Friday as Reception children made pumpkin soup after reading the story, although there were mixed feelings about the actual taste! We also learnt about harvest and how we should be thankful for our food. Take a look at our video to see the pumpkins and scarecrows we made.
On Tuesday, we had a lovely trip to Tesco where we learned about all of the different types of food and how they are made. We looked at the ingredients needed to make bread, the different colours of fruit and vegetables and the different kinds of fish available. We enjoyed feeling the freezing temperatures of the freezer and the chilled temperature of the fridge.
Today in Reception, the children have been learning all about builders. We took a look at different types of buildings and the materials builders use to make all of the very important buildings around us. The children have really enjoyed designing their own buildings and then using their designs to have a go at creating their own buildings with blocks. There have been some very skilled and enthusiastic builders around the Foundation Stage building today, just take a look at their fantastic toolbelts!
Year 2 put their culinary skills to the test this afternoon by making some soup. We thought it would be the perfect dish to keep us warm on an Arctic expedition. Children peeled and chopped onions, potatoes and leeks and added them to hot oil and vegetable stock. Once the mixture had heated and the vegetables had softened it was time to blend to make it nice and smooth. It seemed to be a real hit with the children (and staff)!
Great work children!
Year 2 had a wonderful time exploring our local Tesco store today. We got to have a sneaky peek behind the scenes going to where the deliveries are kept and going in the freezers and chillers. We also got to try some of the bread, cheese and ham the store sell.
Today nursery have found out more about scaredy squirrel. Scaredy looked out of his tree for ‘killer’ bees and fell out! The children have all had a super go at making a bee.
What an exciting day we’ve had in Reception today! The children have all taken part in tasting a variety of foods and learnt some new language to describe the different flavours. Can you remember our new words to describe the taste of the cocoa powder and icing sugar? I’m sure you can spot the sour faces the children made when they tasted the lemon slices! We’d love to hear what your children have said about our ‘taste’ day.
