You are all invited to our celebrations next Friday afternoon (20th December) in Year 6. We will be holding a VE Day event in the downstairs hall from 2:30 and you are welcome to look at our displays and the children’s books to see the learning we have been doing.
Today children in Hawk class discussed what Christmas meant to them, as part of the R.E. unit. The children went on to discuss the story of the birth of Jesus as recorded in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, before understanding why this event is so important to Christians.
Kestrel spent some time looking at the presentation of their meals. We discussed what it means to be awarded with a Michelin star and how restaurants receive this status. We then looked at how we can improve the final look of our meals – after all, we eat with our eyes. 5
As part of our DT unit, the children in Hawk today looked at the presentation of the dishes they had prepared in their previous lesson and thought about how they could apply finishing techniques to further refine their food.
The children discussed how often food can be made more appealing by improving its presentation, as evidenced in Michelin star restaurants.
I think they deserve some Michelin stars for presentation!
