• Uncategorised Comments Off on Our trip to Martin Mere

    Yesterday we had a fabulous time at Martin Mere.  We strolled around and spotted lots of different birds and had the opportunity to feed them.  We did some pond dipping and then looked at the type food the pond insects eat.  We played a game to find out whether the insects we caught are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores.  We also had a great time in the play area!  At the end of a long day, there were some very tired children and teachers on the coach on the way back.

    Take a look at our pictures…

    We had a great time again improving our knowledge about healthy eating.  We talked again about not eating with our eyes but instead using all our senses when we are trying new food.  We should look, smell, listen, touch and taste our food.

    We had a great time today showing off our Easter bonnets and meeting the Easter Bunny for an egg hunt.

    One of our children said that he felt like he wanted to cry because our Easter Parade was so lovely!

    Happy Easter everyone!  Be good and take care of each other.

    Today Chef James has visited us in class.  We have been tasting foods from different food groups – carbohydrate, fruit and vegetables, fish and fats.  We have had fun  tasting food from different countries grapes, sweet potato, celery, tuna, quark, cheese, pomegranate, plum tomato. peppers and kiwi fruit.  We had to say if we thought the food was sweet, sour, bitter or salty.

    Afterwards we looked at some herb – rosemary, basil, mint and coriander plants.  Our class are growing planted chives and cress and we will water them in school and use them in our bread cooking next time that Chef visits us in the summer term. 🙂

  • Uncategorised Comments Off on A Victorian Christmas at Dunham Massey

    We had a great time yesterday in the role of servants at Dunham Massey, the home of Lord and Lady Stamford.  We met lots of Victorian characters like Lady Stamford the lady of the manor, Mr Hughes the butler, Mr Adams the head gardener , Mary who cleared the paths in the garden,  Arthur the gardener, Sam the mole catcher, Cook,  Mrs Green a servant and Betty a who lives in the cottages on the estate.  Look out for them in our pictures and tell your family all about them.

    We had a walk in the woods and had to look out for poachers who were catching rabbits with a snare.  We actually did catch the poacher ‘red handed’!  He had a snare in his pocket and a rabbit in his sack so we reported him to Mr Adams.

    In the afternoon, we worked in groups to make bread, Christmas cards, crackers, biscuits and pomanders, all in preparation for Christmas celebrations.  At the end of the day Mr Hughes the housekeeper tasted our chocolate bread and said it was supreme!!

    The lady of the house was very impressed with our work and as a reward she had her photo taken with us at the end of the day.

    We had fun finding out about what it would have been like to go to school in Victorian Times.  The teachers were very strict and the students had be obedient at all times.   We found many differences between schooling then and now and also some similarities.

    The children agreed that they all prefer modern day schooling to the strict regime followed in Victorian Times!!!
