Ready, steady, cook!

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.

Sharing time


20140610-111320.jpg 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.



Farming and Countryside Award – Beginning at Bronze



20140610-105615.jpg In Reception’s assembly today we found out that we will be going back to the farm in two weeks to help us achieve our award. We looked at the booklets again and found the things we have not yet learned in order to achieve our Bronze award.
What do you need to do next?

Kandinski display

We have used different sized circles to draw around to help us create our own Kadinski pictures. Some of us used Sketchbook on the iPad to draw ours.





Our new artist is Kadinski. Kadinski is famous for abstract paintings. Can you find out what ‘abstract’ means? Write your answer as a comment below.
