Let’s go camping at Arbury Park

We headed off for camp on Tuesday 14th June and we were all VERY excited.  There were going to be some great activities and lots of new things to learn. We were ready for an adventure!

Here we all are ready for a fun time at camp.

As part of our learning in Money, we had a class Trading table. everyone could bring things from home to sell and then they could bring $2 to spend. At the end of buying and selling we made a  table and recorded how much money everyone had left. We then talked about profit and loss and breaking even. We had lots of fun.

Pizza Assembly

We decided to share our learning about healthy pizzas at our whole school assembly. We dressed up as chefs with aprons and hats. Callum was the famous Chef Vitali, Lily was Guiseppe, Isabella was Marco and Michael was Luigi. We shared some information about pizzas and how and where they were made. We all made our own cardboard pizza and put mushrooms and other vegetables on it. We waved them around during our Pizza song that we had created.

Making Pancakes

DSCN3249

 We made apple pancakes at Grab 5. We used Granny Smith apples. We mixed milk,flour, eggs and apples in a mixing bowl. Ali put them in a frypan to cook. When they were ready, Jane and Ali put yoghurt and honey on them. We each got a plate and a spoon. The pancakes were delicious!
