Parent Friday – Food Tasting – 2:45 Friday…

As you know, in partnership with  ‘Connecting Generations’ and the Maple Cross Student Council, we will be sharing our

experiences, cultures, learning and wisdom, across the generations, through the medium of food.
  Gathering age-old culinary wisdom to share and connect generations

Everyone is invited to attend as always, but this half-term, we will trial having a focus class who will be given the chance to experience cuisine from different cultures, families or backgrounds.

To begin with:

Friday 27th April:  Reception class focus.
Friday 4th May:  Year 1 class focus.
Friday 11th May:  Year 2 class focus.
Friday 118th May:  Year 3 class focus.

If you are able to attend, please do join us to learn about what we have in common and what we can learn from other community members who come from a wide range of cultures, ages and backgrounds. We do still have a few slots for someone to share their own special dish that has been important to them growing up: Was it something your Gran always made you? A special recipe from mum?

If you would like to offer to present a dish for a few minutes or to find out more, do drop us a line or come and experience our first intergenerational cultural learning one on the 27th to see what to expect!

I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Y2, how did it feel emptying your wormery? Do you think we did the right thing? Had the worms changed much?

Goat visit to EYFS

Today, to support our learning of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ some goats and lambs visited our school. We were able to feed the goats cabbage and bottle feed both the goats and the lambs.  The children were shown how to hold the goats and the lambs and found out which were heavier to hold.  At the end of the visit, the goats showed us how they jumped on to a bridge and we could hear the sound their hooves made!
