We have the busiest time this week, immersing ourselves in all things Literacy for Book Week. We have been focusing on Traditional Tales and the children have done lots of Drama using the story box and props to make up their own stories.
As a link to Hansel and Gretel, the children made their own bread and watched how the yeast made the dough rise.
Next up was the Readathon and book swap, which were both a huge success. The class loved exploring all the different books and getting to take a new one home, as well as getting to read with some of the older children.
The children worked hard together in pairs, to create their own touchy – feely books and loved presenting their homework projects to the class. Check out our display outside the class on your way past. Well done everyone!
Last week Room 6 completed their interdisciplinary topic on Burns by having a Burns Supper and Scottish food tasting session.
The children tasted a range of Scottish foods including Haggis, neeps and tatties, tablet, shortbread, oatcakes and smoked salmon all washed down with a wee dram (of Irn Bru). The children recorded which of the foods they enjoyed and those they disliked. There was singing, dancing and a cheers to Robert Burns!
This afternoon Room 3 had a Scottish Food Tasting afternoon to celebrate Burns. We tried haggis, neeps and tatties, Scottish oatcakes with cream cheese, smoked salmon, shortbread, tablet and Irn Bru. The haggis was very popular and all of the children really enjoyed trying new foods.
Room 3 took part in cheese tasting on Monday afternoon to end their topic on milk and dairy. They tried French Brie, Mozzarella, Red Leicester and spreadable cheese which they had with breadsticks and crackers. Everyone really enjoyed this experience and decided that Red Leicester was their favourite.
