Today in Funky Foods the Year 5 children made vegetable kebabs. They chopped the various ingredients, including onions, peppers, mushrooms and halloumi cheese using bridge and claw grips. They made courgette ribbons and threaded the ingredients onto wooden skewers.
They even cleaned up after themselves taking it in turns to wash down the tables.
Once grilled, they had a chance to try their kebabs with some flatbreads. The kebabs were a hit!!
Today in Funky Foods the year 3’s made bread rolls and vegetable soup.
They learnt how to safely use a swivel peeler and cut vegetables using the bridge and claw grips.
Once the soup had cooled they were able to analyse the appearance, smell, taste and texture. There were lots of children eager for a second helping and all of them will be bringing the recipes home.

This term, we will be looking at the continent of Africa in our Learning Adventure. As part of our stunning starter, we looked at unidentified wooden items from Sierra Leone and had to suggest ideas about what they could tell us about that country. Another activity was to look at letters written to our school from children in Sierra Leone – we thought that they were very artistic! We also showed what we already know about continents by labelling and sticking them to a blue balloon to represent the globe. One of the activities was to investigate using an atlas. To link with our wider theme of Globetrotters, we were challenged to learn how to say hello in as many different languages as possible. We noticed that some languages have a very similar way of saying hello. At another table, we looked at photographs and were asked to say which were of Africa – at the end we discovered that they were all of Africa. Finally, we had an opportunity to share the connections that we have with other places around the world and where we would like to visit in the future.
