What we’ve been doing…

vegetable couscous

This week, the children used their cooking skills to make a vegetable cous cous salad to finish off our DT unit. The children thought it was delicious and many have taken the recipe home to make it again with their family! 

cooking skills

As part of our DT unit, the children have been learning how to safely use knives to cut, chop, slice and dice. The children were so proud of themselves and will use these skills in next week's DT lesson when we make a cous cous salad.

Blanket stitch

As part of our DT unit for this half term, the children are learning how to do a blanket stitch and their first attempt was incredibly good! You can tell by the big  smiles on their faces how proud they are of their achievements! 

Addition and Subtraction

In maths, some of the children have been using natural resources to support them with addition and subtraction problems. They really enjoyed this activity and worked well in their pairs.

A Visit to Roots

Miss Richardson, Mrs Butler and a group of Year 3/ 4 children went to spend part of the money that we have had kindly donated by one of our parents. The children enjoyed looking around the shop at the fresh fruit and veg and carefully selected items to buy that they thought the rest of the school would like.  Next week, year 4/5 will get the chance to visit the shop, and Year 6 the following week.
