Space Rock Cakes
Once the children had weighed and measured out their ingredients, they were prepped and ready to go.
There was mixing and whisking, cracking and kneading. Oh, and a few sticky hands!
After the children had cooked them and left them to cool, the rock cakes were lightly sprayed with gold and silver edible glitter to make them look like space rocks!
The children really enjoyed the taste test!

For our science work for STEM week we have been looking at bees and how vital they are to us. We have been discussing and designing solutions to help our bees thrive. We have been identifying what the biggest threats to bees are and how we can help to reduce these threats. The children were really on board and proactive in their desires to create some places for our bees to rest, feed and drink.
For more information, the children can look at the friends of the earth website that we looked at in class.

This toolkit also has some useful ideas…
A toolkit for bee helpers
Well done Osprey for creating some imaginative and original ideas for saving our bees!
What a fabulous day with some wacky costumes and lots and lots of wonderful book talk. The children have been rotating around different classrooms working on different creative tasks based around a story. There has been art work, drama and lots of lovely story telling. In Osprey, we focused on the Shel Silverstein story, ‘The Giving Tree’. We discussed the importance of giving to others and wrote our ideas down on a leaf. We decorated our leaves with fine line detail and hope to display them within school. Hopefully today has inspired the children to read more, give more and perhaps pick up a new book from the book sale. Don’ t forget your book token!
Happy reading, folks!

We had the pleasure of having Mr Taylor-Weekes in school today to teach us how to use boom whackers – what fun we had! In just 30 minutes, we were playing a couple of songs we recognised, just by hitting a few tubes on our tables.
Thank you for a great session, Mr Taylor-Weekes.
