Matzah maker 😋

Patrick has been learning about the Jewish festival Passover and how Jews eat Matzah during this time because it is unleavened bread. It reminds them that when Jewish people had to leave Egypt, they had to leave so fast that their bread didn’t have time to rise. Patrick made the bread himself following a recipe and only had help with the oven. Great job Patrick and I bet it tastes amazing with chocolate spread! 😋

Inventor in the making

Last week in school, we learned about famous scientists and inventors. At the end of the week, the task was to create your own invention and upload it to the little inventors website. Even though Zoe wasn’t in school at the end of the week, she took the information home and uploaded her idea herself! If you like the idea of being an inventor, why not have a go. I’ve attached the link below:

Gooseberry picking!

Laira picked, topped and tailed 21lbs worth of gooseberries with her Nonna! 21lbs!! If you ask your parents how much you weighed as a baby, you’ll realise just how heavy this is. So far, they’ve already made a cake 😋 I wonder what else they will make?

Wow, wow, wow!

3LT, when I set you a challenge to read 1000 books, I never expected you to move so quickly. You are well on you way this week, reaching 975!!!!! Her are the books you’ve been reading – are there any you’d recommend?

Miya keeping busy!

Miya has continued to be busy outside of schools over the past couple of weeks.  The baking and cooking has continued.  She has made a pasta dish, pancakes, chocolate eclairs, meringues which were turned into Eton Mess and yesterday she had her second attempt at macarons.  However the macarons were not successful and had to be thrown in the bin.  Miya is realising that there are some recipes that need to be practiced over and over again to get them right and macarons is one of them.

She obtained a pea plant and potato plant from school a few weeks ago and as you can see they are thriving in the garden, there is even a pea on the plant! A scarecrow was also made to scare the birds!

Finally, she has started some sewing and completed a stuffed dog made of felt.  It been a busy few week for Miya!

Books for you to read online

3LT, we’ve read 745 books on Epic! during lockdown. It’s amazing so a big well done to you all. I think we should aim for 1000! Here are some books I’ve assigned to you. They link to the learning we would have done in school this half term…I added the ‘What in the world?’ book as I thought you might find it interesting. It certainly sparked my curiosity. I hope you enjoy! If you haven’t done much reading recently, here’s a reminder below on how to get set up.
