Our Wonderful Easter Workshop

We had a wonderful time at our Easter Workshop in the last week of school. There were lots and lots of parents and carers who came to support their children in making different Easter crafts. Thanks to all who came and made it such a success. It was great to see so many of you there.

We can’t wait to see you all at the next workshop 🙂

Yummy Pancakes!

You can imagine how excited we all were when we saw it was Pancake Day on the calendar! We decided that we just had to make pancakes 🙂

First there was lots of talking about pancakes and Lucas told us everything he knew about them.

We thought about how to make pancakes and the all important toppings.

Before we made our pancakes we had to write the shopping list and decide on our toppings. In Maths we had a vote to decide which were the five most popular toppings in Onyx class. Everyone voted by putting their cube on the topping of their choice. We counted up and found out which ones had the most votes. Hot chilli sauce was the most surprising option!

Everyone helped to make our pancakes following the recipe carefully then it was our favourite bit- eating them!!!

They were delicious! We did such a good job and we’re really glad we decided to make pancakes at school. Did you have pancakes at home this week? We’d love to know what toppings you had and how they tasted. Don’t forget to fill out a WOW moment to tell us what you’ve been doing.

What have we been learning

  • About the British celebration of Pancake Day. 
  • How to write shopping lists. 
  • To find out the most popular toppings by having a democratic vote. 
  • To follow a recipe and make pancakes. 
  • To stay safe in a kitchen. 
  • To talk about what we have been doing. 

How can you continue the learning at home

  • Make simple recipes such as pancakes or cakes together allowing the children to help measure the ingredients. 
  • Write a shopping list together before you go to the shop. 
  • Talk about staying safe in kitchens and why we need to be careful.

Our Easter Chick Hunt

On the last day of school we found a strange message in the classroom…

image

We looked around the classroom and found the first clue. It took us a little while to work it out but we realised we had to go to the slide. We knew we were right when we got there and saw some chicks…

image

There was another clue at the slide and we had to think carefully to decide where we thought it would be. We also looked very carefully and spotted some more chicks to show us the way.

image

The next clue was much easier and told us to go to the dining room. We had to creep quietly down the corridors so the chicks didn’t hear us coming and run away!

image

It took us a while to work out the next clue. Luckily Mr Sieczkarek was there to help us because we found it really hard. Eventually we worked out that we had to go the staff room so that’s where we headed next.

image

We had worked it out right and in the staff room we found another clue. It was very strange being allowed in the teacher’s staff room because normally there are no children allowed in there! The next clue said to look under Miss Parker’s chair which was easy because we know that’s in our classroom.

image

When we got back to the classroom we found a great surprise. There under Miss Parker’s chair was a basket full of Easter eggs and a note. It turns out it was the Easter Bunny who’d left us the clues and chicks!

image

We really hope the Easter Bunny does come back next year as we loved the Easter Chick Hunt. It really made us think and was a good chance to look round the old building one last time before we had to say goodbye.

Thank you Easter Bunny!

Pancake Day Fun!

Although Shrove Tuesday was in the half term break we didn’t want to miss out on pancakes because we all love pancakes.

We read the book Mr Wolf’s Pancakes. What happened in the story? Ask your child if they can tell you the shocking twist at the end of the story!

image

We wrote some lists so we knew what to buy from the shop and worked out which order the instructions had to go in so we could make some pancakes of our own.

image

 

And then it was time to make our pancakes. We decided it would be best to share and for everybody to help make the pancakes so we could all help eat them.

image

Then it was the part we’d all been waiting for……….. we all got to eat the pancakes!

image

Valerie very cleverly recorded which toppings the children had chosen for their pancakes. Chocolate was the most popular.

We all agreed that it had been best to work together to make and for everyone to share eating the pancakes.

We also had an exciting juicing station in the classroom so the children could investigate and explore the different citrus fruits you can have on a pancake. It was fantastic fun squeezing, pressing and juicing the different fruits. It smelt amazing!

image

We all loved pancake day and can’t wait for next year!

We invited our parents and carers to school again to join in with our Easter Workshop. Over 15 children in the class had family members come to complete Easter crafts with them.

Thank you to all who came to support us with this event. The children had a fantastic time
