Time Travel mystery……..

After lunch we came rushing into class and found lots of dust on the carpet. I followed the dust and sparkle dust and on the carpet was a strange, old suitcase. We didn’t know what was inside it so we used our curiosity power to open it and look inside.     Bilal

 Slowly and carefully we opened the case incase there was something scary inside. The dust made us cough. Inside we found some black and white photos, some massive, old circle shaped glasses, a birth certificate, some old 1 penny coins that were massive  and a letter.       Vithushana

After  we opened the suitcase I felt scared because I didn’t know what was inside or who it belonged to. We thought it might have been a ghost! The letter told us to find clues to learn about famous people from the past. We need to look for sparkles on the case to find the clues.    Betty

Come Dine with Me…..the finale!

First we sent out invitations to our parents to ask them to come into school at 2.15pm so we could dine with them and share our work.          Alys

Next we did lots of cooking at school like making cakes and making lots and lots of delectable pizza. It looked and smelt yummy.                 Sienna


After we decorated the hall with the Italian paper chains we had made and all the flags. We had the lay the tables with the place mats we made and put out the plates, knives, forks, spoons and cups so it looked like a real restaurant. It was hard work but it looked fantastic.      Mia



I was so excited when my nan arrived. I got to share my work with her and do different activities like using maps and an atlas to find Italy and China, looking at our Chinese lanterns and dragon paintings and doing the chop stick challenge. We did an ABCD quiz and I got all the questions right because I used my connections to remember what I had learnt.                    Michael


At last, the part ALL of the children (and parents) had been waiting for…..THE FOOD!! Everyone was invited to ‘Come Dine’ in our stunning restaurant and it all went very quiet as everyone nibbled on delicious, mouth watering cakes and simply couldn’t believe how scrumptious our healthy, Italian pizza was! I was very proud of your hard work 2S.          Miss Steventon


Finally we got to do our dragon dance in front of the parents. We made 2 Chinese dragon heads in class using our creativity and sharing power and we moved in time to the music.  Sometimes the music was slow so we moved slowly and when the music was fast we moved quickly. It was fun.    Vicky


We had the best day ever and we want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the moms, dads, grandparents and family members who battled through the rain and wind to spend a lovely afternoon with us.

Please tell us what you enjoyed most during you ‘Come Dine with Me’ experience.

Master chefs at work!!

For our final topic outcome we were going to invite our parents into school to try some of the food from around the world that we had made in class, so we were master chefs all morning!!

We used our literacy skills to carefully read and follow the instructions from the recipes, numeracy skills to sensibly weigh out and measure the ingredients and sharing power to work together to make the yummy cakes.

We made cakes and rice crispy cakes in the colours of the Italian and Chinese flag so we needed lots of creativity power too!

Look at us hard at work…….

Delectable Italian pizza!

We designed our own Italian pizzas as part of our Come Dine with Me topic. We decided what ingredients we wanted to add, and which herbs we wanted to try. We carefully chopped the ingredients, put them onto the bread with the tomato and sprinkle on the herbs. next we cooked them and last of all we gobbled them up!  “Oooo! They taste delectable” said Aisha as she took a big bite!

We have learnt about the flag of Italy, the money they use called euros and what the farmers in Italy grow. We used our creativity and persistence power to do some weaving to make Italian flag place mats ready for our end of topic picnic.              Juwayriyyah
