The UK and Europe
Our topic for the Spring term is the UK and Europe.
In geography, we have been looking at the location of different countries and what region of Europe they are in. We have also explored the different flags of each country and have spoken about the similarities and differences between them.
D & T
We have been exploring some of our European countries in more detail and have researched the different cuisines of different places. This has includede some food tasting which has been very exciting. So far, we have had food tasting from France and Italy.
In our French day, we tasted foods like, French Onion Soup, Cheese, Baguettes, Crepes and even Snails!! I think the crepes definitely came out as the favourite food of the day!!
In our Italian day, we made our own fresh pasta and had to work in teams to flatten and cut our dough. We also made a fresh ragu and had the chance to cut and peel our vegetables before cooking. Once we had finished, we were able to take some pasta and ragu home to share with our families and try!
We are exploring the work of a local artist, Kate West and seeing how she adapts maps of places in to personalised pieces of art. We are going to be creating our own version of a personalised map in the next few weeks.
