Food Facts

During our Food Facts lessons we  learn about different food:  where it comes from; what it is  made from;  what it looks like before its cooked;  and then children are encouraged to taste food in a taste challenge. We do this to  encourage children  to try new things and extend the foods they eat.

Last we tasted foods eaten during Divali celebrations. Children tasted Indian rice pudding, sweets, crackers biscuits and snacks.  They had a great time, and so did the staff. Almost everyone tried all the foods which was great. The crackers were a big hit in 2G,  2O got tucked into the rice pudding, and   2W tried them all twice as they had a Divali party at the end of the week! An enormous THANKYOU  goes to Dhillon’s family for donating all the food,  and especially to his mum and grandmas for preparing it for us all.

We All Went on Safari

Our latest production ‘We All Went on Safari’ is based on the book by Laurie Krebs and Julia Cairns. We’ve used lots of different techniques to produce the film; The children have worked extremely hard creating and performing with puppets, stop motion animation, acting and signing. George showed off his excellent reading skills for the narration and CJ did a great job of reading the numbers in Swahili. A big well done to all the children who were involved, you should all be very proud of yourselves. We hope you enjoy our film.
