Carrot cake!

Mrs Harling helped us with our Food and Farming topic today, by asking us to create carrot cakes! They were delicious and everyone will get a chance to make one over the next two weeks.

Waltham Place Farm

Year 1 had an amazing trip to the farm on Tuesday. We were the only school there and were so lucky to have the sun shining for nearly the whole day. The staff were very friendly and taught the children – and the teachers – new farm facts and information. We also saw rare breed sheep and their week old lambs, as well as guinea-fowl and chickens. Can the children remember why we get blue and green eggs?

There were so many activities undertaken. You might hear the children talk about making compost (yes, they may ask you to find some mole hills!), which part of different plants we eat in the kitchen garden, tractor facts, creating our own ‘smelly pots’ with the herbs and flowers growing around, as well as flour milling and chasing Mrs Poland disguised as a chicken!

It was a really wonderful day, full of learning, laughter and best of all, an understanding of how much we rely on farms to produce the food we need in our lives.

What a welcome back!

Wow…what an exciting welcome we had back to our new term. Our teachers were dressed as book characters and we got to visit our brand new library!

We love it and we even had a visit from Mr Clayton to read us a story.

Thank you so much to the PAA for raising the money for the refurbishment. We love it!

 

Now, we have our new topic of Food, Farming and Growing to look forward to, starting with our trip to Waltham Place Farm on Tuesday, 25th April.

What an exciting term ahead!

Pond life

Now Spring has sprung, we took the chance to visit the pond and watch tadpoles wriggling their way out of the frogspawn. It was very exciting and we saw a other wildlife, like a newt, as well!

Blast off!

Mrs Cox helped us learn about forces this week and we made our own paper rockets. We attached them to straws and when we blew, they blast off into the atmosphere of Holme Grange!

We love our Science lessons!

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day, the Kites and Owls classes undertook some peer reading, sharing books with one another. The children really enjoyed themselves and helped each other with their stories. #CooperationAndCollaboration.
