Titanic Tea Time

It has been wonderful to watch our Kingfishers learn new skills during Cook It week. They have prepared and cooked food from the menu of the restaurant on the Titanic (with artistic licence for Yorkshire puddings only). Each child proudly took a ‘Titanic Take Away’ home to have for tea. How lucky are we?!

Recreating The Titanic

The Woodpeckers are enjoying finding out about life on-board the Titanic and have been busy recreating this amazing ship. They have designed and created their own cabins, thinking carefully about the first, second and third classes passengers on-board and how their cabins would be decorated. They even designed their own miniature wooden furniture.

Country Dancing

 

The Squirrels have been working very hard on their English Country Dancing. They have had to practise staying in time with the music, counting to 8 and 16, working with a partner and travelling through the space carefully. 

 

We have even linked the dance to our work on fractions. 8 and 8 are two equal halves of a whole – 16! Well done Squirrels!
