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!

Internet safety discussion

Today in Osprey class we had a really important and spontaneous chat about internet safety, following a playtime conversation which raised some concerns for a few children. We had an in-depth and healthy conversation about how the internet can be both an amazing resource and yet a minefield at the same time.

The children were encouraged to talk to a trusted adult if they felt they had any more concerns or questions which may arise following this discussion.

Here are a few tips which we discussed in class, which we thought would be useful to share with you all.

Super blood wolf moon!

You might want to check out this BBC news article about the awesome lunar eclipse which is happening over night. Apparently the best time to see it will be about 5:30am tomorrow morning, so if you fancied waking up for it, you’ll get to watch something that doesn’t come around very often!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. See you bright and early tomorrow morning.

D&T sewing project

Before the Christmas break, the children in Osprey class were given the opportunity to design an item to give to a friend or family member as a gift.  The item had to be a pouch of some kind, such as a mobile phone case or a small purse or wallet.  The children then designed the gift accordingly (after secretly measuring mobile phones and other potential items at home) and created a bespoke present for their person of choice.

The children created some beautiful felt pouches, sewn together neatly with blanket stitching and finished off with a button and decoration. They then wrapped their gift, ready to give out on Christmas Day.  If you were one of the lucky people to receive one of these parcels, we hope you are finding it useful!
