Iranian Turnip Soup

To kick off our new English book, ‘Pea Boy and other stories from Iran’, we followed a traditional recipe for Iranian Turnip Soup.The children had to slice, dice, mince and measure before cooking their delicious soup. We just loved it! A great insight into Iranian culture.

I was delighted to see EVERY child in class taste the soup; it’s so important to try healthy foods.

After, wrote our own recipe cards, so we can make the meal with our families!


A special story from a wonderful story-teller

This morning foundation stage were very lucky to be visited by Josh from year 5. He had brought in a book for us written in the style of “We’re going on a bear hunt” but telling the story of the first Christmas! He read us the story beautifully, and even explained what some of the trickier words meant. We love it when the older children come to read to us! Thank you Josh.

So proud of our performers!

Nursery and Reception put everyone in the Christmas spirit today with our Christmas performances! We sang some favourite festive songs, and even performed our own story – “We’re going on a Rudolph hunt!” Well done children, and thank you to everyone who came to watch us!



Festive fun in Early Years!

We are having lots of festive fun in Nursery and Reception! We have made a giant picture of the Nativity scene, and love role-play related to Jesus’ birthday around it. We have had a great time exploring pattern while making paper chains (which turned into moustaches!). We are also learning through play in our “Santa’s workshop” role-play area, writing lists and building and counting toys, and are enjoying the home corner for role-play celebrations, cooking and reading in a cosy Christmassy reading area. We are also making and writing our own greetings cards. Not a minute to waste!


I’m Stick Man, I’m Stick Man…

Today, each child from Year 2 went on a stick hunt to make their very own Stick Man. After we made the stick men in our Art books, we wrote character descriptions for each one of them. Take a look at our great photos so far.

Bear Hunt Big Art!

We are enjoying immersing ourselves in the book “We’re going on a bear hunt” and getting messy creating large art pieces based on the different settings in the story!


Here is the bear!

Here are the pictures of our exciting search for our missing class bear last week! We followed his paw prints to find him in the library with his favourite book!


News Flash! Missing bear found!

Nursery and Reception heard some exciting news yesterday afternoon – some chalky paw prints had been spotted in school! We quietly followed the trail and found our missing class bear…IN THE LIBRARY! He was clutching a copy of “We’re going on a bear hunt” by Michael Rosen in his paws. After hundreds of bear hugs, we told him that he must NOT wander off on his own again as we had been very worried about whether he was safe! However, we realised that he must love this book, so we will be using it in class next week.

Photos to follow soon…


Our bear is missing!!!!!

Help! Our giant class bear has gone missing! We have made posters and displayed them around the school, written messages and been searching high and low and asking EVERYONE we meet if they have seen him. Now he has sent us some pictures of where he’s been in school, but we still can’t find him! We are building a den and leaving food out for him tonight to see if he will come back…
