We were lucky enough to work with our fantastic food technology teacher today to complete our design and technology topic by making our very own healthy snacks. Here's a little taster to wet your appetite...check out the gallery to see all of our skills in action.
Friday 2nd November
In RE we have been learning about Diwali. He listened to the story of Rama and Sita and practised retelling it. One important way that Hindus celebrate diwali is to put out lighted diva lamps. This represents the way that the people used their diva lamps to create a row of lights to show Rama and Sita the way home from exile after they had defeated the demon king Ravana. We used clay to make a pinch pot to create our own diva lamps. We then painted them in bright colours. Finally we created our very own row of lights in the hall to see for ourselves how magical it would appear to Rama and Sita. Check out the gallery to see our concentration in action and experience that special moment too.
Wednesday 31st October
We worked hard in our design and technology today to learn some new skills. In preparation for making our healthy snacks with Mrs Tatham, we practised our cutting and spreading skills. When we cut, we learned to make a bridge and put the knife under the bridge so that we didn't cut our fingers. When spreading, we learned which part of the knife to use and practised holding the knife correctly. It wasn't as easy as it looked and we really had to concentrate!
