Gardening Club

What a surprise on our first day back!

Miss Ellis' Gardening club discovered this HUGE courgette they planted just before the school holidays! Year 1 children then used the tasty vegetable to make a courgette, onion and breadcrumb treat. Sensational smells filled school and everybody loved eating our very own produce!

We had a great first LEGO club, the children really enjoyed it. The theme this week was 'Space' the children had time to get creative and could make anything linked to the space theme. Some children decided to work in groups and some children worked individually. They created aliens, spaceships, rockets, the Sun and lots of the different planets. Here are some photographs of their completed models.


Starting soon for Year 1

Thursdays 3.20pm-4.15pm

 Keep an eye out for the letters.

'Grub Club' is an after school club which encourages children to become confident in using kitchen equipment to prepare simple snacks and meals. It develops children's understanding of a range of foods and helps to encourage the children to make healthy choices and have a balanced diet.

Here are some pictures of the children enjoying preparing a range of foods. This half term we have made our own pasta sauce, pancakes, stirfry, spicy beanburgers and crushed fruit ice lollies. The ice lollies were a real hit especially with the lovely weather we have had!
