Orienteering Final 2023
Members of Kingfisher class attending the final of the Wiltshire Orienteering competition. It was held at Daunseys and we managed to dodge the weather for the children to run the course. It was a little tricky due to the new technology and only one team completed the course with no errors using the electronic system however all the children were absolutely fantastic sports ambassadors for the school.
Iron Age Residential - June 2023
Kingfishers had an amazing time heading back in time to the Iron Age for their residential in Cranborne. They enjoyed washing and chopping vegetables for their meals as well as making butter and bread.
Outside activities included mining for chalk so this could be ground into a powder then mixed with water and hay to make a daub. The daub was used to repair a wall and make bricks.
We "slept" overnight in a Long House on wooden boards covered in sheepskins. If you want to see more then check out our gallery below:
Making pasta and pasta sauce
Kingfisher class spent the last morning of term making fresh pasta from flour and eggs. They learned that you need 1 egg for every 100 grams of flour. Children experimented making their own pasta including farfalle, tagliatelle and penne! They also made their own sauce using tomatoes, basil, onion and slightly too much garlic.
Thanks to chef Telford and Southern for their help.
