We have been learning about the Easter story and the symbols that are important at Easter. The children have read and ordered the story, created Easter cards, made hot cross buns and worked together to make an Easter garden.
Not only did the children make fruit kebab snacks this week, they made a healthy meal. The children collected the ingredients and equipment so they could prepare and cook vegetable soup. Working as a team they did super following a new recipe. All the children were brave trying a new food and all enjoyed developing their culinary skills.
This half term we have been reading 'The Scarecrows Wedding' by Julia Donaldson and having lots of fun with activities based around the events in this story. Most recently we have been learning about instructions in English and decided to write instructions on how to make a scarecrow. Before being able to explain to someone else how to do something you have to know how to do it yourself! So...today, we made our very own Betty O' Barley and Harry O' Hay in preparation for writing/creating our own instructions.
We hope all the special ladies and Mums liked their Mother's day cards, it was a joy to make the cards and to hear all the lovely things the children had to say about you all.
All the children did really well writing their ideas down and forming the letters.
