Winter vegetable stew

This week we have been looking at the story of The Three Little Pigs and how the wolf finally fell down the chimney into the pot of stew.  The children used their safe cutting skills to chop the vegetables for their own stew....it was DELICIOUS!

Enterprise - Apple Café 

The children enjoyed harvesting the apple crop during their forest school session.  They sorted the good and bad apples ready to use in our apple café.

We decided chocolate dipped apples would make a tasty after school treat.  In maths, the children have been revisiting money in preparation for their role as shopkeepers.  They helped make decorations and props for the stall too.  Finally,  they thoroughly enjoyed dipping the apples in the melted chocolate...and fingers too...accidently!!

The sun chose not to shine on our café, but it didn't dampen the spirits of the shopkeepers or the customers.  We raised almost £50 to go towards classroom resources...Yeah!

Watch out for our cooked apple café...date TBA.

Elmer - In literacy we have been re-writing the Elmer story.  We have also used various mediums to create our own Elmer images.  

In PSHE we have been thinking about our goals for Year 1.

Christian Symbols


We made a spaceship for Beegu. We had to collaborate all our ideas and use different materials and tools. We even created our own Beegu's using salt dough.
