Healthy Eating

Filed under: General News — Mrs Stalker at 4:28 pm on Friday, July 6, 2012

Today we have been learning about healthy food. We have been tasting a range of fruits and vegetables and most children liked all of it!!!
We ate: mango, passion fruit, lychee, pepper, broccoli, pineapple, parsnips and watermelon. We described them when we ate them and said if we liked it or not.

Our Victorian Day

Filed under: General News — Mrs Stalker at 7:17 pm on Tuesday, July 3, 2012

On Monday we got the chance to see what it was like to go to a Victorian School. We dressed up for the day in Victorian clothes. The children looked fantastic! We went into the hall where Mr Blackhurst lined up the girls and the boys. He inspected our hands to see if they were dirty and then inspected our shoes. We went into the classroom where we had to say a prayer and then we sat down in rows. We had to copy writing, chant a poem and learnt how to count using an abacus. Mr Blackhurst also showed us some of the punishments they would use in the class. We had an absolutely fantastic time!

Our Wednesday Assembly

Filed under: General News — Mrs Stalker at 1:41 pm on Wednesday, June 27, 2012

We played a circle time game called “Where are you?”
The children were told that there was an imaginary line on the floor. They had to listen to two opposing statements and then decided where to stand on the line (at one end or the other, or in the middle.)

I eat anything —————————— I’m very choosy about what I eat I’m tidy —————————— I’m untidy
I watch TV all the time —————————— I never watch TV
I never argue —————————— I’m always arguing
I like PE —————————— I don’t like PE
I like drawing —————————— I don’t like drawing

We emphasized that there are no ‘right’ answers and that we are all similar and different. We talked about how boring it would be if we all liked, or were good at, the same things.

Designing and Making our cereal bars

Filed under: General News — Mrs Stalker at 8:05 pm on Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Today we designed our own cereal bar. We had to decide what to put in them e.g. dried fruits such as raisins, mango, apricot and strawberries. We also suggested chocolate chips and a yoghurt topping. We then made a cereal bar in groups. We then got to taste them and evaluate them. We had to say what we liked about them and how we would make them better.

Our Design and Technology Project

Filed under: General News — Mrs Stalker at 4:08 pm on Monday, June 25, 2012

We are going to be designing and making our own ‘healthy’ cereal bars this week. Today we have been tasting cereal bars. We had to describe their appearance, taste and say if we thought they were healthy or not. We then chose our favorite one and said what we liked about it. We looked at the ingredients of a cereal bar and are going design and make them tomorrow. We found out that some cereal bars that a lot of sugar inside them!
