Pipits Term 1

"The life of a biscuit is usually short and sweet"

Sugar and Spice are the main ingredients for our learning in Year 1 this term. Our journey starts "with a lump of pastry" in the form of a story called Biscuit Bear written by Mini Gray.

Can we tantalise your taste buds with a spicy bread, or cake? Perhaps you would like to sample our sugary biscuits? Or you could join us on our discovery as we learn how spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, and mace came to England.

Any volunteers to help with our baking? (Or eating?)

 

Woodland Day.

We really enjoyed our early Autumn trip to the woods. We had a short shower that really supported our learning, which was lucky! Have a look at our shelter designs, our challenge was to keep Biscuit Bear dry in the rain. What natural or man-made materials would you have used?
