Would you go?

Well done to Years 5 and 6 for an excellent day trying to solve the problem of dwindling numbers of people visiting the Italian region of Campania. We began the day by creating authentic versions of a pizza margherita and panpepato cakes. This was done with the help of many of our adults who were able to get stuck in with the dough making and garlic pressing: as the Italians would say ‘Grazie!’ Can you share anything you found out about these recipes (either how to make them or why they are associated with the region)?

We followed this up by discovering more about individual places within the region such as Capri, Sorrento and Amalfi. Can you tell us more about them? How are they similar to Worksop? How are they different? I’m looking forward to finding out all that you’ve discovered….DSC06548 DSC06549 DSC06550 DSC06551 DSC06552 DSC06553 DSC06554 DSC06555 DSC06556

I’m on top of the world!!

Imagine you have jut reached the summit of Mount Everest. Can you write a diary entry about your thoughts and feelings? What difficulties would you have had to overcome? What conditions did you have to face? How do you think you might be feeling? What might your hopes for the future be? Every person that posts an appropriate diary entry before Friday night will receive two signatures.

Another Week Gone…

This week we have begun writing our newspapers in Literacy and did our first Priory’s All Write. We also wrote different styles of poem for the Out of this World Competition. We have been learning lots of Geographical language for our topic work and we went on our visit to Weston Park Museum.

What did we do on the trip? Do you remember anything about Athena and any  facts that Anita told us?
Science: with Mrs Dorrington we classified plants. Can you remember what the sorts of plants she brought in were?
