Every Friday afternoon we have our enrichment activities; we all LOVE cooking and baking in our class, so this week Mrs Hyams thought we might try our hand at crumble. After a few mid-mixing tasters, we decided to just chuck all the ingredients into our bowls and have a messy old afternoon mixing our concoctions of fruit, butter, sugar and flour! The result? Sometimes an empty bowl, sometimes a sort of pink soup, sometimes something resembling playdough. Maybe crumble next week?
We all headed out for break, bellies full of berries and had a good run around.
In science, this half-term, we have started a topic on animals and plants. Since everyone’s favourite Chilean folk tale inspired song is Farmyard Jamboree, we decide to use that as inspiration for learning about animals, and their young, and counting. We looked at different farmyard animals from the song and identified them…
We then made some pigs and made them dirty with mud….
In 11W we have been learning about Bonfire Night and fireworks. We watched a video on the history of fireworks then made our own edible sparklers using breadsticks, melted chocolate and edible glitter.
In 11W we have made firework pictures using salt, PVA glue and paint. We made firework shapes using PVA glue then sprinkled salt onto the glue. When the glue had dried we carefully painted the fireworks using lots of bright colours.
Year 11 are working through the Creepy Crawlies topic. Over the last 2 lessons we have been exploring how microscopes are used and learned that quadrats make sampling easier when counting plants in larger areas.
