Last week we had a wonderful time independently working though a recipe for soda bread. The children had to work together in small groups of four. First we had to half the recipe to ensure we had enough ingredients, then we had to read the recipe really carefully before using scales, specific spoons and measuring jugs to identify the correct amounts needed.
While the classroom got a little floury, we had great fun and the soda bread rolls were delicious!
Are part of our new science topic, Living Things, we have been learning how to classify a range of plants, animals and other objects using Venn and Carroll diagrams.
We particularly enjoyed walking over to the field with Eagle Class to hunt for different invertebrates. We found crustaceans such as wood lice, arachnids such as a spider as well as insects, including ants, flies and even a beetle.
Robin Class have been busy hatching chicks and we were lucky enough to be invited down to meet these beautiful newborn vertebrates.
Here are some photos of the wonderful experience.
Thank you Mrs Clayton for being so generous with your time and Robin Class for sharing your classroom.
