Cress Sandwich Instructions

We have had a great week planting more cress as the first crop didn't grow very well! We looked at what could have gone wrong (the children were such great problem solvers) and tried again. While were waiting for it to grow we bought some from the shops so we could go ahead and make our cress sandwiches. The children were fantastic and were very keen to taste the cress, some for the first time. They talked about the other vegetables they liked and showed off their knowledge about healthy eating. The children have all written their own instructions so they can have a go at making their family cress sandwiches. Enjoy!

 Thank you for all the Jack and the Beanstalk stories, and different seeds that have been coming into school this week. the children are really enjoying learning about growing . if you have any seeds, cuttings or spare plants we could have to use in school it would be much apreciated. 

Finally thank you for all the continued support with reading. Those 10 minutes a night really do make the difference and give the children so much more confidence.

Enjoy the long weekend.

The children have all come back to school full of beans which has been very handy as we launched our week with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

We decided to grow our own Beanstalks too  Please feel free to come in at the end of the day to see how they are growing.

The children are keen to plant lots of different seeds and find out more about growing. 

After a wobbly start we are re-launching our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  If your child has any ideas, questions or photos of things they have done please send us an email.

Its a very busy term with lots going on. As always if you have any questions or queries we are always happy to help so please pop into see us.

It was lovely to have lots of parents in on our dress up day to come and share lots of activities. The children were able to show how we learn to tell/sing  (with our 3 Little Pigs song) familiar stories to help develop our reading and book skills.
