Farm to Fork

February 28th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized


This morning some of our class visited TESCO Worksop to take part in the Farm to Fork session about Healthy Eating.

We walked all the way from school which took us quite a long time as we only have little legs. Non of us moaned though and we were glad the sun was shining!


We looked at all the fruit and vegetables and hunted for different coloured fruit. We talked about the sugar content in certain foods and even got to try some foods that are low in sugar which are better than eating chocolate!


We then made a breakfast muesli to take home and eat.

Jakob – I liked it because one of the crayons was naked!

Jack – I liked it because GREEN crayon was proud of Duncan’s work.

Lucy – I liked it because the pink crayon got used at the end.

Addison – I didn’t like it when the peach crayon was naked.

Edward – I didn’t like it because the blue crayon was broke at the top.

House Building 🏠🔨🚜

February 3rd, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Early this week we research and talked about what the houses looked like during the time when the Great Fire of London occurred.

We then had a go at designing our own house from the time. Today we began to build them with a partner. We started by painting our boxes.


Then we added windows and doors.

Then we added the structural detail to give the wooden effect on the from of the houses.


Next week will add the roof ready for our own recreation of the Great Fire of London.
