Pizza Making

We made pizzas at Frankie and Benny’s as part of our healthy schools week

Fruit Salad 

Year Two have been designing and making a fruit salad for an Olympic athlete. We taste tested lots of different types of fruit.


In maths we collected data and made pictograms to see what the most popular fruits were.


 We then designed what the fruit salad would look like, including packaging and how we would present the fruit.


Finally we made the fruit salad. The best part was trying it!


We looked at natural artefacts and made observational drawings.


This week we said goodbye to the tadpoles. We looked after them lovingly and they grew into froglets.
