Today we reflected on all our learning this half term and thought about what type of learners we have been during the ‘Food Glorious Food’ topic.

Elsie felt she had been curious when we visited Tesco as she didn’t know what it was like out the back of the store.

When we tasted rice and bread we were being curious. (Lexi)

We cooked bread for different amounts of time and we were being curious and creative to see what was going to happen to the bread. (Jayden)

Abigail feels she was creative when she learnt new words to the Oliver song, Food Glorious Food. She liked the version from Ice Age 2.

Harry C played superheroes at Lenny’s house. He feels he was collaborative and Lenny feels they were also being creative.

At home Mia was collaborative, creative and resourceful when she was making Tikka Masala as part of her Home Learning.

When we have been reading alien words and real words we have been resilient because we have had to try to work out what they say. (Alfie)

Joshua was creative when he was thinking of ideas for his Beebot map with his group.

When we worked in groups making a Beebot mat we were being collaborative. (Ellie-Mai)

We tried to get Beebot to go over some numbers. This showed us being collaborative as we worked together to think of instructions and resilient if the instructions were not correct. (Harry T)

We have had a busy last week of topic learning and it has involved one or two special events. On Tuesday Mrs Secker came to visit to talk to us about how to clean our teeth properly. She was pleased that we were all still using a child’s tooth brush because our mouths are still quite small and an adult’s tooth brush would mean we missed bits when we were brushing. She also told us that now we are 6 we should be using grown up tooth paste as this will help look after our adult teeth. We all brought our own toothbrush and toothpaste to school and spent 2 minutes cleaning our teeth. Look at our shiny smiles!

On Thursday the Garlic Theatre Company visited us again and performed a puppet show of ‘Little Red Robin Hood.’ We thought it was really good.

Today we had a food related Reading Café. First of all we retold all our visitors the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ that we had been practising, with actions. Then Mrs Burt read a story called ‘The Little Red Hen makes a Pizza,’ and we all got to make our own pizza that we could take home to cook and eat. We also did some pizza printing with different vegetables and played with some stretchy pizza dough. Elsie tried to stretch and swing it around her finger!

We hope you all have a lovely half term break and look forward to seeing you all again in a weeks’ time.
