We are delighted to be teaching the children of Butterfly Class.
I will be updating the page on a regular basis to keep you up to date with the recent learning as you might want to extend their learning at home.
We have P.E. on Thursday and I would like all children to bring their kit and trainers every week. You could leave kits on pegs all term if its easier.
We will have swimming in Term 3 and 4 for all the children.
We will have Outdoor Learning activities in the woodland every other week.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
As part of the R.E. curriculum, some of the children went to visit St. Barnabas Church.
We looked at the different things in the church and discussed what they were used for. We were very interested in the stain glass windows and made some careful drawings. We are going to use these as a prompt when we make our own stain glass windows.
Paper People Project 16.11.16
We have been thinking about children around the world who are less fortunate than us.
The children have drawn around their friends to be part of an exhibition 'Hung out to dry 2' in London for the artist Gladys Harvey. The exhibition is about refugees around the world.
Here is the receipe the KS1 children have used to make:
• 100g organic golden caster sugar
• 1 organic egg
• ½ tsp baking powder
• 80g currants
• 100g soft butter
• 250g plain flour
• 2 tbsp milk
• tiny drop of oil of cassia or 1 tsp mixed spice
1. Heat your oven to 200⁰C. Put greaseproof paper on a big baking tray.
2. Beat the sugar and butter together until soft and fluffy.
3. Add the egg and whip until fully incorporated.
4. Fold in the flour, baking powder and spice.
5. Gently mix the lot together whilst adding the milk, tweak your quota of milk to yield a roll-out-able dough.
6. Lastly, knead in the currants.
7. On a floured table, roll your dough to about 5mm thick.
8. Stamp out your biscuits with a pretty cutter and lay on the tray.
9. Bake until the edges just start to turn golden and they have the tiniest bit of colour underneath (about 12 minutes) and remove immediately.
10. Sprinkle with caster sugar while still hot, then allow to cool.
