In order to achieve our bronze level Farming and Countryside Award we need to learn about wheat. This week we have looked at wheat and learned about it’s role in making bread. We have read the story of The Little Red Hen and made our own bread. We all had a small taste before sports day practice to give us some more energy!
Some of us helped to make the carrot cakes at the farm. There wasn’t enough room for them all in the cooker so Derek too some of them to the farm house to cook in his aga.
At the farm we decided to make some vegetable soup and carrot cakes, using our healthy ingredients. We learned lots of new skills and made sure we kept safe when using knives and hot water.
We are so proud of Jacob! He has worked so hard on Mathletics that he has achieved his Gold award! What an achievement for a child in Reception. Well done Jacob, all this hard work has helped you to make great progress!
Jack has been very busy planting at home in his own little garden, like we have been in school. He brought in photographs and talked to us about his carrots and edible flowers.
Jack and his family went to the RAF Cosford air show at the weekend. They saw lots of exciting things including a Sea King Helicopter, RAF pipes and drums (Jack says they make a very strange noise) and a parachute display. What an exciting weekend Jack, thank you for sharing with us. We now know lots about the RAF that we didn’t know before.
