What we've been doing
This half term we have been lucky to go off site for our outdoor learning sessions. We made bird feed using several ingredients including gelatine, water and various types of seeds.
Our Topic this half term is Ancient Egyptians. We just had to wrap Mathew in toilet rolls so we could experience what it was like for the Egyptians to mummify their pharoes. Do not worry though, we didn't pluck the brains out through the nostrils using the special hook.
As Asia is our class continent, we just had to make chapatis. Again, no packet mix - made from scratch.
After making and cooking the chapatis, children sampled a little taste of chicken tikka masala with their home made chapatis. They also tasted the popular crispy Indian bread - the poppadom.
We made pizza dough and part-baked them in school (no packet mix in sight).
Our class project is bread.
With our continent being Asia, we have studied several areas of China, India and Japan. The photos show children developing their origami style skills by making miniature Japanese dolls.
