Drama in preparation for writing

We have been acting out the story of 'Peepo' by the Ahlbergs.

Then we added speech bubbles to help us with our writing...

We will let you know what happens next!

Class 2 make soup!

Today Class 2 have made soups in groups, to warm them up on this cold day!

Earlier in the week they prepared and tasted different vegetables to decide which ones they wanted to put in their soups. They also tried a smooth soup and a chunky soup to decide which style of soup they wanted.

Finishing the recipes...

Then we prepared our vegetables. This was the first time that many of the children had peeled and chopped onions!

Stirring time...

More chopping!

Some groups decided that they needed to add more water before they liquidised their soups.

After that we blended the soups...

It was wonderful soup! Yum! Yum!

Now we are thinking about how we could improve our soups if we made them another time...
We had great fun!

Visitors from Finland!

Today we have had visitors who used to live in Finland. Finland is another cold country. When it is cold the school children have skating lessons for PE. They sometimes have to ski across country instead of walking!
