Vegetable Soup

Last week our food of the week was onions.  We used onions to flavour our vegetable soup.  Ethan and Isla helped to saute the onions in butter to make them soft in our vegetable soup.  We all helped to make the soup by peeling, slicing and dicing the veges, adding the water and stirring the soup.  We cooked our soup overnight in the crockpot.

the next morning we came to school and our classroom smelt wonderful!  We all tasted the soup and most of us loved it and even had seconds.  We wrote instructions about how to cook the soup.

Here is Yina's recipe... she has remembered every step and put it in order.

Symmetry in Motion

We have loved exploring shapes and symmetry this term.  We have been learning to find lines of symmetry in different shapes and also making shapes that are symmetrical.  We made these creations with different maths equipment  in our classroom.  Then we used pieces of wool to show where the line of symmetry would be.

Making Hulk Juice

Our school is participating in the What's for Lunch? Food of the Week and Reduce, Reuse, Recycle programme this term. This week we have been learning about spinach. Spinach is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are good at getting rid of the bad stuff in our bodies. They are like the superheros of our bodies, who fight the bad guys to keep us healthy.

We made Hulk Juice with the spinach.  We all helped to make it and we ALL tried it.  Most of us thought it was delicious.  A few of us weren't so sure.  

We all wrote about what we did and then altogether we wrote a recipe.  You might like to try and make it at home.
