Stir fried vegetables and noodles
To end our week celebrating Chinese New Year children chopped vegetables to make a stir fry, which they ate with noodles. We also learned about how Chinese children learn to eat with chop sticks.
Happy Chinese New Year
This week we have been learning about how people in China celebrate their new year. We found out that children born in 2014 were born in the year of the horse and children born in 2015 were born in the year of the goat.
Children have been making Chinese dragons, lanterns and drums, as well as writing their names using Chinese symbols. Some children even wrote the numbers to 10 in Chinese symbols.
A Picnic on the Moon
Buccaneers enjoyed an exciting day making jam and honey sandwiches in the morning to pack in their picnic. We then flew to the moon, found a good spot to lay out our picnic blanket and enjoyed eating our sandwiches (followed by some yummy chocolate biscuits). We took it in turns to talk about all the things we could see from space. It was a bit of a rush but we still managed to get back in time for 3.15! Amazing!
Honey cakes for Baby Bears
Buccaneers have been learning about the story Whatever Next as an introduction to the theme of space. We have been thinking about the foods Baby Bear took to the moon. All children enjoyed joining in weighing ingredients and mixing them together to make honey cakes.
1st Session of 2020
We had a lovely first session back; we upcycled tin cans to make shakers, used natural paintbrushes to paint trees, worked together with Mr Sutherland to build a den, had a go at lighting fires, lifted logs in our search for minibeasts and enjoyed hanging out on the swings. There was lots of team building, working together, learning new skills and building confidence.
