Circus Skills at the Gymnastics Festival

This week we have been particularly busy in Class 2.

On Monday we all helped make five different vegetable soups. We had a lot of peeling and chopping to do. Jacob H wasn't keen on chopping onions as it made him cry! Afterwards we got to taste and evaluate each soup.

Our favourite by far was our tomato , onion and basil soup. Mrs Holroyd invented a new recipe called 3 P soup. It had pear, parsnip and parsley and it actually tasted very sweet. 

Please have a go at making soup with your children again at home as they all enjoyed it so much and had lots of ideas for recipes.

What a fantastic visit we had to Osbar Farm- despite the driving rain!

We have written recounts about our visit and letters of thanks to Farmer Chris. last week we made posters to advertise the farm and we have been busy writing leaflets too.

 

We also learnt all about life cycles and the the milking process.  

Here are some photos to enjoy.

 

It's Book Week  on 4-8 March and we have lots of activities planned for you.  

Please bring your favourite book to share on Wednesday with Class 1. Dress up as a book character on Thursday.

We're also tasting different soups on Monday and making pancakes on Tuesday with Mrs Whalley.

Please wear warm clothes that can get dirty. no school uniform needed.

We had fun making pictures of trees from all the sticks we collected around the school grounds. We worked in groups to make the tree sculptures in the outdoor classroom.

In our Science lessons, we set up an experiment to see what conditions seeds needed to germinate and then grow into seedlings.  We got some surprising results. Even the seeds without water grew a little bit because the soil had water in it. 

The seeds in the dark grew long white shoots with tiny yellow flowers.

The seeds that grew best had light, warmth and water.

Look after your sunflower very carefully at home. What will the seed need?

You can keep it warm by covering the pot with half an empty plastic bottle.

Bring your seedling back to school when it has grown.Image result for germination of seeds
