Thanks,

Well done to Daisy, Lilly, Lily Theo and Lacey H,  who all guessed the correct answer to Thursday's challenge, which was 'John'.  

Here is your Easter challenge

I would like you to try and make an Easter box or basket using only material you have at home. Be creative :)

Then, fill it with chocolate and enjoy!

You have all done an amazing job and have made me very proud to be your teacher! Have a lovely Easter holiday.

This half term our topic is called 'The Farm Shop'. We have been looking at different seeds and watching them grow.

As well as this, you could do some practical activities at home including:

Children could research this and update me with what they find out.

  • Plan the sequence of actions needed to make your salad. Record the plan by drawing and using sketches, with annotation where appropriate
  • Make your salad and enjoy it!
  • Then evaluate what you liked/ disliked and how it compared to other salads you tried.
