Dutch Sausage Rolls
To finish our term of baking and cooking with Mrs Pateman, we had a go at making Dutch sausage rolls. They smelled delicious but some children were unsure of the large chunks of onion in them! Time to practise cutting onions more finely perhaps.
If you would like to try them at home without the onion, please click on our recipe below.
Persuade People to Visit Lincolnshire
In English, we have been working together in groups to create persuasive phrases to encourage people to come to our home county. We will be using some of these great ideas in our persuasive writing next week.
In RE, we discussed a number of issues at our cafe this week with Mrs Nicholls.
As well as learning about 'gluteus maximus', the number of muscles in the body and their jobs, we decided to try to create a 'muscle' out of paper and string. A challenge!
Our target today was to be as agile as we can in our dodging. It was great fun (apart from Evelyn kept beating Mrs Upsall!!).
Don't forget it is school photos on Tuesday- time to look our very best!
This week Mrs Pateman has made a speciality from Norfolk with us- Norfolk shortbread. Norfolk might be better known for Cromer Crab or Brancaster Mussels but we thought we would be safer with a lovely biscuit! They were delicious (just ask Mr Sharman and Mrs Edwards!!). Next week: Dutch Sausage Rolls.
Enjoying a Book on our New Furniture
It is great to enjoy a good book in comfort.
Ascending or descending?
Today we have been ordering numbers from smallest to largest and largest to smallest, discussing which is ascending order and which is descending order. Our young friend wanted to stay in at playtime to do more! Well done, young man.
The Human Skeleton
Do you know where all the bones are inside the body? We researched using x-rays, videos, posters and Mr Skelly before trying to draw them into a body outline.
We have been comparing numbers applying our place value knowledge.
Great work again this week learning how to play our new instrument.
This week we have been looking at another nearby county- Yorkshire! Mrs Pateman kindly made some lovely puddings with us to get a taste for the Yorkshire delicacy.
Our Eco Ambassadors have set up a Wombling group for Wednesday lunch times to ensure our school grounds are litter free! It is great to see such enthusiasm.
Friday Afternoon PE Fun
Today we created mini courses for each other to develop our balance.
Today we have looked at the nutritional values of a range of different foods we might all find in our kitchen cupboards. We discussed the energy the foods would give us as well as the salt and fats that would go into our bodies. The children realised that if they eats lots of food high in energy then they need to do lots of physical activity to actually use it. If we are going to have a day watching the TV and playing on our games consoles then we need to be more mindful of how many snacks we are eating (and what snacks they are!).
First Cooking Session!
Mrs Pateman has kindly volunteered to help us with our cooking this term. Her first job... to make Lincolnshire Plum Bread! Different children will be helping her with different recipes throughout the term.
PE- Fundamentals and Fitness
This term, we have Mrs Edwards assisting us in our PE sessions every Monday and Friday afternoon.
School Council and Worship Council
The children have been asked who would like to be part of our two councils which we will be voting in next week. Please take a little time to talk to your child about the role and help them to articulate why they would like the position so that they are able to explain to the class before we vote.
We will also be looking for Eco Warriors, librarians and Reading Ambassadors in KS2 so there are plenty of roles on offer to stretch the children in different ways.
It was great to see all the children back into school today and settling into their new class/year group.
Holly Class had a busy day which seemed to zoom past with the children not believing it was home time!
This afternoon we got started on our topic work 'Passport to Europe' by comparing France with England. As well as looking at the physical features such as rivers, mountains and surrounding countries, we compared the breads and cheeses! Delicious!
