Making Fruit Kebabs in DT - Tuesday 6th March
After reading 'Oliver's Fruit Salad' we decided to make some fruit kebabs. We talked about the fruits we would like to include and the equipment we would need to create the kebabs. The children designed and labelled their fruit kebabs using a plan which you can see some examples of in the photos below. Once Mrs Terris had brought in the fruit we set to work...have a look at our tasty creations!
Christmas in Italy!
Today Year 1 and 2 learnt about how Christmas is celebrated in Italy. They completed a quiz, coloured pictures of the Christmas witch 'La Befana' and then tried some traditional panettone! Buon Natale!
World Food Day
On Monday 16th October Year 1 and 2 joined together to celebrate World Food Day, using the theme 'My Breakfast, Your Breakfast'. We began our day by looking at breakfasts eaten by four children around the world, and comparing them to our own.
Next, we created food waste posters to help us think more carefully about how we can reduce the amount of food that goes in the bin at lunchtime.
In the afternoon we thought about our GLP big issue "How can we make others feel welcome?" Caroline in Uganda didn't have any breakfast or lunch at school and Mouna in Mali had to pound the millet before she could eat it. Laila thought that if these girls came to our school we could give them some food, so we made some delicious breakfast rainbow fruit pots and cheese and fruit bagels that we would share with them. We ended our day with a thankfulness prayer and breakfast picnic.
Brilliant Bee-bot maps!
In computing we have been learning about programming Bee-bots. We are now designing our own local area maps so that we can create an algorithm to program the Bee-bot to travel from the Co-op shop to our school!
Thank you to all those parents and carers who came to our maths investigation morning.
