Yummy Mummy Biscuits in Year 3

This half term, our non-fiction writing genre is instructional writing, so this week I thought it would be a great idea to see how well the children could follow instructions in order to make an Egyptian Mummy biscuit. They all did an awesome job and they looked fantastic! After making the biscuits, the children wrote their own instructions explaining the steps needed to make and decorate an Egyptian Mummy biscuit. They made sure they included all of the features we have been learning about, such as bossy verbs and time connectives. What a fantastic effort by all of the children – I hope your biscuits tasted as good as they looked! Well done boys and girls!

Gingerbread Superheroes

This week, we have been using the story ‘Charlie’s Superhero Underpants’ as a basis for some of our work. One of the children suggested that we create our own underpants designs using gingerbread men. What a fantastic and fun idea! The children enjoyed using the icing and ingredients to create their own design…and I imagine they loved eating them too!

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt!

The nursery children teamed up with reception to go on a bear hunt. They looked all around the school yard for clues. They looked on the climbing frame, the stage, in the little houses and in the construction area, and there he was hiding up a tree! You found him! Da iawn pawb! To celebrate finding him, we made some delicious bear biscuits. Yummy!

Amazing Alien Biscuits!

As part of our topic, ‘Toy Story: The History of Toys’, we have been looking at the Disney film ‘Toy Story’. The nursery children found the little green aliens very funny, so we decided to make our very own alien biscuits. Don’t they look amazing!

Making A Mini Beach

The nursery children made their very own miniature beach. They learned about the different states of matter by making jelly to represent the sea. They learned that they can dissolve the jelly into a liquid, then as it sets it turns back into a solid.  They then crushed biscuits to represent the sand and even had a little jelly man sunbathing on the top! It tasted delicious too!

Shapes, Shapes And More Shapes!

Today the nursery children have been very busy learning all about shapes. They cut out shapes and used them to make pictures, used magnetic shapes to build, threaded bolts through circular washers and nuts, and made different shape sandwiches. We even danced to the Mr Maker shape song!

Rainbows and Raindrops!

Today the children have been learning about rainbows. The children learned all about the lovely colours and participated in a range of rainbow and raindrop themed activities. They chalked some lovely rainbows onto black card and finger painted a rainbow picture. They played parachute games with a rainbow coloured parachute, did some messy colour mixing, played in some sparkly water and even had time to make a lovely rainbow cake. What a busy morning!
