Coconut truffles

We had a lot of fun crushing digestive biscuits, mixing in dessicated coconut and cocoa powder, then stirring in the sticky, sweet condensed milk. Finally, a quick roll in more coconut and...voila! The mixture didn't look particularly appetising but I have it on good authority that they tasted…

"White Cliffs of Dover"

The children have been thinking about why music was important during WW2 and discussing the meaning behind some of the lyrics. As a class, we attempted to play along with the chorus of 'White Cliffs of Dover' on our xylophones, although it wasn't easy, we had a good 'bash' at it! Musician of the…

Celebrating the Pesach festival

The Bengal Tigers have been learning about Judaism and the story attached to their festival of Pesach (Passover). We tried to replicate a 'Seder' meal, although we didn't sample the lamb shank bone, we tasted everything else, including charoset, a mix of apples, cinnamon and nuts. You'll have to…

We have also been practising our finger gym activities to help us with our fine motor…

This week the Penguins were inspired by year 6. Year 6 had been working hard on their IPad presentations, they taught us how to make scones. So the Penguins decided we had to make a shopping list of ingredients and then become star bakers! Well done Year 6 and Year 1 - great team work!
