What a very busy half term!
We watched the eggs in school hatch into baby chicks. They grew really fast and have now moved to a farm because they got too big for their tank.
As the children have been very interested in shopping, we decided to visit Matfen village shop to buy ingredients to make pizzas.
We wore our very kindly donated luminous bibs to help us stay safe, and sat in our car seats in the minibus. When we arrived, we all held our adult’s hand, and had to walk very carefully to the shop on the edge of the road, listening and watching very carefully for cars.
We looked around the shop to see what would we like on our pizzas…there was lots to choose from.
…..salami, passata, flour, cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, hot dog sausages, sweetcorn, ham, pineapple….
We each bought something, getting our money out of our purse:
Thank you to all the mams who helped us – not only on the trip, but with the younger children (who will be going on their own trip soon) and other older children (as we went in two groups).
A few days later, we created our own pizzas, as part of our Italian Day, lead by our Italian staff member. First we looked at Italy on the map.
What a lot of pizza toppings to choose from!
Some spread passata on first.
Children each had a different design in mind. (We hope to print photos of them all so that we can compare them).
We then went to visit the big kitchen. Here are all our pizzas ready to go into the oven.
Thanks to the school chef for letting us in her kitchen and for cooking our pizzas for us.
Of course, we then enjoyed eating them, whilst listening to a story in Italian!
