What we have been learning
After Horlands Farm, we used the pears we picked to make pear muffins. We chopped and cooked the pairs, mixed the ingredients and poured it into cake cases to bake. Of course we remembered to wash our hands!
We went on a trip to Horlands Farm to learn more about where food comes from. We picked pears and apples, fed the pigs and even made a bed for the cattle from a bale of hay.
We have been reading I Want a Cat by Tony Ross. We wrote our own versions of I want a Cat.
In Maths we have been practice reading and writing numbers to 100. We have begun to partition, compare and order numbers. We are becoming confident with place value.
We have been understanding different ways in how we can be healthy. We have looked at food groups, dental health and exercise so far. We have performed an egg experiment (the eggs acting as our teeth) to see how Coca Cola, diet Coca Cola and water effect the surface of an egg. Will the liquids change the egg? If so, how?
We have been discussing where food comes from. We looked at food labels and learned that food comes from different countries. We used atlases to find the countries where our food comes from.
We have been learning about why Jewish people have parties. We have learned about Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot and Hanukkah.
