We are a mixed class of Year 4s and Year 5s who are taught by Mrs Possnett (Mondays to Wednesdays) and Mrs Peters (Wednesdays to Fridays). We also have Mrs Moss and Mrs Trollope in with us full-time, to help with our learning.
This term, we will be studying Lincolnshire from the Air. In History, we will be finding out about the RAF in our county and learning about Bomber Command. We will discover why and where children were evacuated and understand the importance of the Women's Land Army. In Geography, we will study Lincolnshire's features and use symbols to create our own maps and landscapes. It's going to be a busy term!
Today, we have been making Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Snowmen in jars - just add 300ml of warm milk, dunk your snowman and enjoy!
Ingredients: half a cup of plain flour, 1 cup of ricotta cheese, 1 beaten egg & half a cup of clear honey
Method: Put the flour into a bowl and beat in the cheese until the mixture is soft. Stir in the flour. Add the egg to make a dough. Divide the dough into four small bun shapes. Bake them in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the buns are golden brown. Warm the honey and pour it onto a plate. Place the cooked buns on top so that they soak up the honey. Enjoy the cake while it's still warm. Yum! (You can see pictures of us making the cake, and the finished product below).
As part of our Personal, Social, Health and Economic learning this year, Nightingale Class will be working towards the PDSA's Petwise Award. This award is designed to teach the children about the 5 most important welfare needs of animals, but these needs apply to us too. Have a look below at our progress so far and some of our launch work.
Mrs Possnett and Mrs Peters are looking forward to welcoming you back after what we hope has been a wonderful Summer holiday. Last year was really action-packed and we're sure that the 2019-2020 school year will be busier still, with lots of hard work and fun along the way!
We have an exciting Autumn Term ahead of us with interesting things to explore and investigate. Our theme will be resistance in Britain from Roman to Modern Times and some examples from abroad too. We'll be learning about the Roman Empire and may even have a visit from a Roman to tell us all about his life. Do you know what resistance means or, if not, can you find out before you come back? What resistance met the Romans in Britain? There was a famous female warrior - do you know her name and her story?
