Pancakes in FS2 Yellow Class

SDC15729

On Shrove Tuesday we made some yummy pancakes. We made them using flour, eggs and milk.  We all took turns at using the whisk to beat the mixture. We used a frying pan to cook the pancakes. We had the choice of chocolate spread, strawberry sauce, golden syrup, sugar or lemon juice.


Foundation Stage Wellie Walk

IMG_0169

In Nursery and Reception we held a sponsored Wellie Walk to raise money for Zoe’s Place in Middlesbrough.  A charity that provides help for poorly children and their families.

We walked around our ‘muddy’ field ten times in our wellies.  Some of our parents joined in too.  We have managed to raise over £1200 so far and sponsor money is still coming in.

“It was wonderful,” said William.

“It was very wet on the grass,” said Ruby.

Erin said, “It was muddy but we had fun.”

FS1 Rainbow – Family and Friends

Year 5 ‘Skype’ with an Everest Explorer

Year 5 were very fortunate to be able to Skype with adventure cameraman Keith Partridge this week. Keith has worked with many different organisations over the years including the BBC but in 2012 he completed a very special mission to Mount Everest. Keith, along with mountaineer Kenton Cool, fulfilled an 88 year old promise by delivering an Olympic gold medal  to the highest point on earth. He was then asked by Sebastian Coe to be an Olympic torch bearer. 

Keith took time out of his very busy schedule to talk to Year 5 about his expedition and the time he spent on Mount Everest. They also took part in a question and answer session.

Y5 Moonstone and Y5 Tangerine children will be blogging about some of the insights Keith shared with them over the coming days. Be sure to check out their class blogs!
