Welcome to Buzzards' Class!
20th July 2017
It is class swap day today. We have some new Buzzards in our class as we are all in our new classes for September. Mrs Mylechreest and Mrs Harrison have had a lovely morning getting to know new children and are really looking forward to September!
To round our hot and busy week off, we had a lovely treat!
Mrs Durr-Sorensen came to talk to us about music.
She brought in her flute, bassoon and contrabassoon. It was amazing to hear her play some lovely tunes on these instruments and she also told us a bit about them and how they worked.
What a hot week!
The children have coped really well, the fan has been working overtime but we have kept going.
The children designed, made and evaluated their clay mythical creatures. They had great fun and enormous thanks to some of the year 6s who came and helped, you were brilliant.
A few general photos to show you our work, these will become characters in our Greek stories that we will be writing.
Buzzards Class ate like Gods and Godesses at their Greek Banquet
To support our topic and learn about Greek food traditions, Buzzards class had a Greek banquet. Each pupil planned a traditional Greek dish, researched a recipe and then cooked the food. As a class we then tasted all of these foods and evaluated them.
The table was bulging with delights from tzatziki and flat breads, to bbq mackerel fillets, lamb kebabs, calamari and baklava.
The children were very adventurous and tasted a lot of new foods.
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came and helped with this Greek treat.
