After reading The Gruffalo’s Child, the children wanted to make something from a Gruffalo recipe book that a child had brought to school. We decided to make ‘Owl ice-cream’ using bananas and raspberries mixed in a blender and then adding raisins and cinnamon. The children enjoyed making the mixture and then seeing what happened to it after we put it in the freezer. Eating the ice-cream today was a great treat!
Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.
We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.
This week Apple Nursery have been linking their learning to the story ‘Room on the Broom’. We have played with the characters from the story, made our own magical mud mixtures, thought of and drawn our own potions, watched bubbling reactions and used different containers to fill up larger ones until they were full!
All of Early Years got to enjoy a fantastic drama, dance and musical spectacular called Magical Minds. It was a story all about emotions and how they help us to be resilient, hardworking and loving people.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
