This afternoon, in cooking, the children in ARP wanted to see what porridge tasted like. They have been reading the story about Goldilocks and today they worked together to make porridge with fresh fruit and strawberry jam.
First, we mixed together the milk and the porridge oats in a saucepan.
Next we put the saucepan on the heat so that the milk and oat could mix together to make a porridge. We made sure we stirred it carefully.
After that, we chose our favourite fruits and chopped them up ready to go into our porridge.
Then, Miss Rea put the porridge into our bowls and left them to cool a little so they were not too hot like Daddy bear’s!
We added our fruit and some strawberry jam and when it was ‘just right’ we ate it all up – just like Goldilocks! We couldn’t wait too long, or it would have been too cold like Mummy bear’s!
Since we have come back after the half term break, The children in ARP have been working extremely hard.
Last week’s superstars were Isaac and Freddie. Isaac has been showing super recognition of his phonic sounds and is always trying his best in all lessons. Well done Isaac! We are very proud of Freddie in ARP for always showing his good sitting in the classroom. Super thinking all the time – Well done Freddie!
Aiman and Carlo have amazed Miss Rea in the classroom this week with their fabulous teamwork skills to help each other with their Maths work. Great work!
This week, Brody has been a real superstar. He has worked so hard in his reading, phonics and his maths and wowed all of the adults he works with. Brody is a fabulous friend who is always thinking of others and always uses beautiful manners. Well done Brody!
This afternoon, we went to the woods to make some bird feeders for the birds. We used pipe cleaners and Cheerio cereal to make our feeders. We carefully threaded the cheerios onto the pipe cleaner until we couldn’t get any more on. The grown ups helped us to tie them so none would fall off and we hung them on the trees. Next week we shall see if the birds enjoyed their food.
The children have really enjoyed their time in the garden over the last few weeks and they have proven themselves to be such super helpers when it comes to maintaining our allotment.
We decided that the most important thing about gardening is being safe. We use lots of tools and equipment so we need to know how to handle them correctly and what to do when we have finished.
Firstly, the children cleared out the overgrown areas and removed weeds and any plants that had stopped growing now that it is Autumn. “The leaves have gone brown and falling on the floor” said Freddie.
“The sunflower is falling” said Noah when he spotted the sunflower drooping now that the flowering period is over.
Once the allotment was clear, the next important job to do was to chose which vegetables to plant which would successfully grow in Autumn and Winter.
Aiman chose “orange gloves” to wear to keep her hands clean.
Freddie said “Let’s plant some seeds, I don’t like onions, but I will put some seeds in and watch them grow!”
Noah said “Oooo! I like planting. I will chose cauliflower!” He also thought that “The seeds are small and black”
Oskar asked for more “soil please!” as he was filling his pot
When the children finished planting their seeds, they carefully placed the pots in our greenhouse. Each day they have been taking it in turns to water the plants and check the pots for any signs of growth!
We have enjoyed exploring the woods since we have been back at school. Lots of things have changed since we were last here. The trees are still full of leaves at the moment, but they are slowly changing colours and getting ready to fall as we approach autumn.
Welcome back for another exciting school year! It has been lovely to see everybody back, safe and happy.
