Making bread and butter

Yesterday, we listened to the story of the Little Red Hen. After we discussed how the Little Red Hen made the bread talking about each stage of the process. We then had a go at following a recipe and weighing out the ingredients to make our own bread.
In the afternoon, we discussed where we think butter comes from, some children suggested milk and some said cream. I showed the children a pot of cream and asked them if they thought we would be able to turn the cream into butter ourselves. We made our predictions and then had a go. First, we poured the cream into some jars and then we had to shake until we could see the cream getting thicker. This was very tiring but the children displayed excellent teamwork sharing the jars around. Eventually, the cream turned solid into butter and we enjoyed the butter on our bread rolls.

Storyteller Visit

This afternoon we had our story workshop from Shropshire based storyteller Sally Tonge and what a fantastic afternoon we had! Sally told the children some stories and rhymes based on traditional tales to reinforce our learning from before half term. She told the story of the Three Little Pigs using her amazing props and through song using her guitar and she had the children hooked from start to finish!
We also all joined together with Snow Leopards at the end to take part in a big sing where we sang the song: The Wheels on the Bus, however our bus was no ordinary bus as we had unicorns, princesses and ghosts on it and we had to think of noises and actions to represent these characters. Such great imagination and creativity this afternoon from all of Snow Leopards and Pandas – well done everyone!

Meet Daisy the cow

This afternoon, we started learning about our new topic: Food & Farming.
We started by discussing the question: where does our food come from? Then, we discussed where milk comes from. We read a story all about how milk comes from cows and looked at how farmers milked today using machines vs a long time ago milking by hand.
We then had a special visit from Daisy the cow and the children had a go at milking her by hand. The children had so much fun and very quickly realised that it takes a long time and lots of hard work to get just a small amount of milk by hand.

Such brilliant learning today Panda Class – Well done!






Learning about Remembrance Day

This afternoon we have been learning all about Remembrance Day. We found out and discussed why we wear poppies. We watched a lovely Cbeebies video called ‘Poppies’ and the children had a great discussion about the meaning of this video. We then explored lots of poppy themed activities such as; poppy painting on cling film, printing poppy wreaths with apples, making clay poppies and drawing poppies.

Panda and Snow Leopards have had lots of fun this afternoon and have done some super learning – Well done everyone!

Hoo Zoo

We had a fantastic Day at Hoo Zoo! The children especially loved the Dinosaur World and could remember and recognise many of the dinosaurs that we had learned about last term!
