Challah Bread

We have been busy today baking Challah bread.

As part of our RE topic, we have been looking at the Jewish religion and the tradition of Shabbat. We have baked the Challah bread as this is traditionally baked and shared during Shabbat.

We all decided that it tasted brilliant, so great the children all wanted the recipe to try at home.

Some of us got stuck into the washing up….we took photographic evidence so they can do this at home too.

Drama workshop

Key stage 2 classes were lucky enough to have been joined recently by the Year 10 drama students from Neatherd High School, who gave us the first preview of their upcoming performance of Hansel and Gretel. It was a fantastic experience and really enhanced the children’s understanding of the story, which was our focus for World Book Week. Not only did we get to watch the students perform, but we also took part in a drama workshop. The students said that our children’s ideas were so creative that they were going to use some of them in the actual show! Many thanks to all from Neatherd and we wish you all the best for the play…break a leg!

Don’t worry, be happy!

Reception and Key Stage 1 have had a fantastic first day of World Book Week. Today, we explored an Anthony Browne story, ‘Silly Billy’. Poor Billy worries about everything; shoes, hats, clouds and even giant birds. Until one day his Grandma gives him a worry doll. This story inspired us to make our own worry dolls and share our everyday worries. The children made wonderful dolls, wrote about their worries and even acted out some ‘worry doll’ stories they composed together. Great work everybody 👍

Whales class mono-printing workshop

Year 1 & 2 have been experimenting with a new printing technique in their art workshops with Mrs Randle. They created ‘seasons’ inspired prints, drawing foxes, leaves and hedgehogs.

Year 2 have been adding another layer to their mono-prints. Using oil pastels to create more texture , pattern and colour. They are such an imaginative and creative group! Mrs Randle
