On Tuesday 6th March, Year 4 had an amazing time doing some Chinese cooking. We made a delicious vegetable stir fry, spring rolls and fortune cookies. We learned lots of cooking skills – cutting and grating vegetables, how to roll a spring roll, how to make and shape a fortune cookie and how to stir fry. Everyone was very good at trying new vegetables (yes, reallly!) and we were really pleased with the results. Thank you to all the staff from the School Lunch Company and to Mrs Truman who came in to help us. We had a great morning!
Learning even more about the Romans in a fun, action-packed workshop. Photos here.
Year 4 building a Sukkot as part of their RE learning.
Yesterday Sarah from the Oxford Synagogue visited year 4 as part of our work on Judaism. Our key question is ‘How special is the relationship Jews have with God?’ and we have been exploring this over the last few weeks. Sarah brought lots of interesting things from the synagogue to show us. She brought a Torah which is a huge scroll and like our Bible full of stories and prayers. She brought mezuzahs which are special little cases which Jews fill with prayers and put on their doors to remind them to pray and to think of God. She even brought a model Sukkot which is a hut which Jews build in their gardens every year to celebrate Harvest. We have asked Miss Mortimer if she will help us build our own Sukkot in the Forest School area! It was a brilliant afternoon and we learnt so much about Jewish people, their faith and their festivals. Thank you Sarah!
Here’s one we baked earlier…!
Take a look at us making our Harvest Loaves. We made one to keep for our Harvest service and one to eat!
