Grandparents' Morning

This morning we welcomed our grandparents to school. 
We were very excited to see them in our classroom!


Fly Away With Me.......

This term we are learning all about kites.

We decided to try and make a kite that could fly but first we had to work out which material would be best.
We tested tissue paper, tin foil, card and a plastic bag to see if they would….

be strong
be waterproof

First we predicted what we thought would happen. Then we tested them.


The plastic bag was the best!

it stretched a little,
it was hard to rip,
it was strong and
it was waterproof!

Then we made a diamond kite from a plastic bag.

We flew them in a light wind and they worked!

Brownie for the Gala

Making Brownie for the Gala

Room 13 and 14 spent the morning baking! 
We made delicious chocolate brownie to sell at the gala.  
Thanks to Anna for helping Room 14. 
It smelt so good that we just had to try a little piece to make sure it was cooked to perfection.
Look out for Room 14's cake box at the cake stall on Sunday!

Here is the recipe if you want to make it at home!

Room 13 and 14’s
