Year 4 & 5 Spanish food tasting

There was a real buzz of excitement in the community room at lunchtime today as Kevin the chef dished up some authentic, regional Spanish dishes.  The children were involved in  helping to set up and serve the tapas and listened intently as he explained about the food and its historical background.  Everyone, including the staff involved got to experience the amazing taste of a variety of regional dishes, such as gazpacho, serrano ham with melon or manchego cheese, chicken and chorizo paella with meatballs and patatas bravas, all topped off with refreshing Seville oranges and watermelon which the children devoured! (Vegetarian versions were included).

Year 5 Journey Outreach

Today, year 5 have had an extraordinary day. We were really lucky to have a team from The National Holocaust Centre and Museum share an insightful journey of a boy, Leo, in 1938. The children had many opportunities of open discussions and were given many clues which helped them learn and understand every step of his journey where it all started in Berlin. It has been a successful day and what the children have learnt today will be the base of our next learning in Literacy.
