We hope you all enjoyed the Christmas break, welcome back to the Spring term!
Weekly Baking Sessions
This term, we have introduced weekly baking sessions with the children. They work in small groups to create a culinary masterpiece. Then share what they have baked with the rest of the class when it is ready. We send recipes home with children for you to try with them.
24th January- Lemon Drizzle Cake
After practising using the lemon juicers in our investigation area last week, we were all expert juicers when making our lemon cake. Everybody enjoyed tasting their piece, some described it as "sweet and sticky" but "very delicious"!
17th January- Banana Bread
The children really enjoyed baking banana bread. They used forks to mash the banana and weighed out the ingredients before mixing them all up. Most of the children were willing to try it, with the majority really enjoying what they tried. One child said it was 'scrumptious'!
The children were very intrigued with the egg that had appeared in our classroom.
After carefully cracking it open ...
...we discovered a family of dinosaurs. These are our Achievosaurs. They are going to help us be the best learners we can be by looking out for particular characteristics of effective learning.
Hatching first was 'Diplo-kind-ness.'
Hatching next was 'Explore-adactyl'.
Out pops Solve-atops!
Stick-osaurus hatches next!
And finally we meet Reach-asaurus Rex.
The Achievosaur Dinosaurs are looking out for children who show their characteristics in the classroom. They have even sent us some stickers to use so everyone knows if the children have been a 'Diplo-kind-ness'! If your child has a dinosaur sticker, encourage them to tell you about what they have been doing to receive it.
