On Tuesday 6th of March we did a tasting session on the different vegetables that might grow in our new edible playground that is being built for us. After that we voted for our favourite two vegetables. We tasted french beans, lettuce, spinach, rocket, radish, mint and carrot.
We would like to thank Jess from Trees for City’s for letting us do this taste test.

This week the children have been busy creating and designing their own chocolate bars and wrappers. They brought the ingredients and equipment for the chocolate making. After they had broken the chocolate into small pieces they put it into the microwave. After that they poured it into their designed net. Finally Mrs McDermott put then into the fridge to set.

Then the children loved tasting it!

On Wednesday the 20th December the children were busy copying pictures from Tom’s midnight garden and copying poems about death. Firstly if they chose to draw the pictures from tom’s midnight garden they copied them out with pencil. Then added detail with pen and finally went over with water which made the ink bleed.
On the other hand if they chose to copy out the poem as neatly as possible in pen. Then added water culler to draw pictures around the poem. Finally they appreciated it.
