In Year 2 we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. As part of this we decided to use a DT session one afternoon to taste a variety of different breads. We thought about how the bread looked, what it felt like and how it tasted. The following day in our English lesson we followed a set of instructions to make our own 17th Century bread which we then tasted.
Year one have been lucky enough to attend forest school again this year at Quex Park. We are going to be going for a total of six weeks and during our time there we will be learning through nature and engaging in practical activities to build on our teamwork skills. So far we have been making scrambled eggs on an open fire, going on bug hunts, making houses for animals and feeding the animals on the farm; including the ducks that were hatched in the reception classes last year!
In Term 1 Year 1 were really busy getting ready for their Harvest Assembly. They had a wonderful time learning the story of The Little Red Hen. The children also learned to sing Oats and Beans and Barley Grow and I Can See Conkers. The children also had great fun baking bread. The children made some fantastic hats to wear for their performance. It was wonderful to see so many parents and family members come to watch the children perform. Thank you.
On Friday 6th October, we invited parents and carers of Year 2 pupils to a reading workshop. This session allowed parents and carers to gain a clearer understanding of how Phonics and Reading is taught at Garlinge, as well as how to best support this learning at home.
