Dosbarth Mrs Curtis and dosbarth Miss Powell are investigating how recipes had to be re-invented during World War 2, due to food shortages and rationing. Both classes discussed what types of food you could grow in your garden that could be added to cakes, instead of other hard to get ingredients. We decided that if you could put carrots in a cake, then maybe you could use other vegetables too.
This week we have made beetroot chocolate cake.
We were all a bit put off by the thought of beetroot in cakes. However once we tasted them, we discovered they were delicious!
We have all made a WW2 recipe book that we will add a new recipe to each week.
I wonder what next weeks recipe will be?
This term, Dosbarth Mrs Curtis and Dosbarth Miss Powell have been focusing on ball skills in Health and Wellbeing. To conclude our learning, volunteers from both classes set up and led various football drills to develop core skills such as dribbling, passing, scoring and defending. We are looking forward to next week with different leaders!
Here are the leaders of this week in action…
Dosbarth Mrs Curtis had a fantastic day at Hay Festival. We saw three authors, talk about their new books, then had the opportunity to meet them and get books signed.
First we saw Onjail Q Rauf, talk about her new book: The lion above the door.
Next we saw Rob Biddulph and his book Peanut Jones and the illustrated city. We all joined in with a draw with rob session, having a go at drawing Doodle the dog.
The last author we saw, was Emma Carroll talk about her new book: The week at world’s end.
Dosbarth Mrs Curtis have been using the Lego WeDo sets and app, to make Milo the Science Rover. We then added a motion sensor, that will be used to detect the presence of a corpse flower in the Indonesian rainforest.
Once our Science Rovers were built, we used the Lego WeDo app to program the rovers to stop and sound an alarm when it found the corpse flower.
On Friday dosbarth Mrs Curtis and dosbarth Miss Powell took part in a rainforest workshop from Size of Wales. Size of Wales is a Welsh charity with a mission to sustain an area of tropical forest twice the size of Wales.
During our workshop we looked at the issues of deforestation, climate change and what we can do to help.
