Cooking couscous!

After discussing balanced diets and what astronauts eat in space, the children made vegetable couscous today! They prepared the couscous, cut and chopped the vegetables before roasting and then enjoyed eating it…

I was amazed with the children’s knife skills and their general health and safety. They also ALL tried EVERYTHING and nearly all of them loved it!


Homework 09.02.18

As its the end of the half term, I am not setting punctuation and grammar homework. The children have been given information about the Invention Convention home-school challenge and some slips to ‘wonder’ for our STEM topic (see attachments below). If you have time, I thought it was a good opportunity to start on those!

However, I would like them to read LOTS (at least 6 times for next Reading Diary check – Friday 23rd February) and please try to hear them as it helps develop their comprehension.

Also, for times tables, please encourage the children to practise using Times Table Rock Stars.

Spellings to be tested on Friday 23rd February are:

intelligence, independence, difference, absence, competence, evidence, rhyme, rhythm, sacrifice, secretary, shoulder.

Optional homework club: Wednesday 21st February.
