This week we noticed that the cress we planted two weeks ago had grown really well and needed using, so we boiled some eggs and the children made egg and cress sandwiches. Some of them who aren’t keen on different food were very brave and touched the eggs, noticing how the texture changed when we took them out of the shells and when we mashed them. A couple of children really enjoyed eating the finished sandwiches!
On Friday we had a Valentines disco. We made a class Valentine’s card for a competition, which was won by Hedgehogs, but they kindly shared the prize with everyone. The children also made individual cards which they have brought home.
They had great fun at the disco, but it was tricky taking photos in the dark. We also went to Crash Bang Wallop on Wednesday, but didn’t take any photos as the children were very fast!
We’ve had a great half-term, despite the children all having colds. We’re really looking forward to the spring and more of our Circus topic after the holiday!
