Potatoes - how do you eat yours? March 2022
We have been learning about just how versatile and popular potatoes are. We've looked at the different ways to cook a potato and have been left with our mouths watering after seeing a video clip of several amazing potato dishes that are served across the world.
Last week, we peeled, chopped, boiled and mashed potato (see photos below.)
This week, we have started designing our own gratin style dish and we're hoping to put our chef's hat and apron on before the end of term to have a go at preparing, cooking (and of course, eating) a gratin dish.
Art - Spring term
Take a look at our amazing, detailed art work of dragons' eyes and bamboo.
Chinese New Year - February 2022
We had a great time finding out about Chinese New Year traditions. We listened to the Great Race story about how the Chinese zodiac calendar began, tasted spring rolls, performed a dragon dance, painted beautiful landscapes and worked hard to follow origami instructions.
West Stow trip - October 2021
As part of our History topic, we visited West Stow's Anglo Saxon village and museum. It was so fabulous to be able to go out on a School trip again! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves whilst exploring and discovering facts about the past.
In the museum, we were given time to investigate and handle artefacts which were fascinating. In the afternoon, we visited the huts in the Anglo Saxon village which all had something different to add to our knowledge and understanding of what life was like during Anglo Saxon times.
We ended the day with a walk around the Beowulf Trail.
This half term we have been listening to rock music by bands such as Bon Jovi and Queen. We have definitely enjoyed rocking out and playing a lot of air guitar as well as playing along to Living on a Prayer on glockenspiels.
SPACE DAY - 3.9.21
What a magnificent day we've had! We made papier mache planets, investigated film canister rockets, made paper rockets and launched them using an air compressor. We were all delighted to see just how high they flew.
