Today we have been looking after our school grounds and making sure it is tidy and safe.
The year one children have been learning all about materials in our science lessons and we found a great Bug Club book to help us identify different materials and their uses. The last page of the book talked about recycling which led to a great discussion about how we can reuse and recycle in our school.
Year 2 have been super scientists this week, we have been exploring micro habitats in our lovely secret garden. We have observed and drawn plants and creatures that we found. We have been looking after them & being super careful with their habitats.
Today, Year 3 were using their right to vote to select who they wanted to represent them in the Eco Council. We discussed the British Value of Democracy as we did this. Eco reps will be announced next week. I wonder who will be the Year 3 reps?
Today the children in year six voted for our eco councillors. We showed democracy by voting for the person who we thought would be the best candidate. These will be announced in assembly next week.
It has been an uncertain year, but throughout the challenging times, the Eco Council of St Mike’s have been consistent in giving their all to help the environment. Even today, with half of the council missing, we still went outside and did our jobs one last time. Thank you to the Eco Council for being amazing this year! 👏
It has been a tricky term with various year groups having to self isolate at different times. But, when in school, the eco councillors are still doing their duties! Today the Year 3 eco councillors were watering our new trees as it hasn’t rained for a week.
This week we are thinking about writing instructions. With this in mind, our first activity this morning was to make chocolate cornflake cakes!
We listened to all the instructions and followed them carefully to make our delicious cakes. We decided we would make one each but it could be for any of our friends, so that when we ate our cake we knew it had been made with love and kindness from our friends.
First we melted the butter and chocolate.
Next we added Golden Syrup and mixed all the ingredients thoroughly.
After that we poured in the cornflakes, mixing and stirring to make sure all the cornflakes were covered in the chocolate mixture.
Then we used a spoon to scoop in the cornflake mixture and carefully put sprinkles all over them.
The next step was to leave them to set, which was quite hard as we wanted to eat them!
Finally we all sat together and enjoyed our delicious treats.
Year 2 have been learning all about looking after our world and caring for all of our lovely plants and flowers. We then grew our own cress and looked after it every day.
