Invent a smoothie

Class 6 have invented a new smoothie today!

We tried a few different kinds of fruit and picked three different ones to peel, chop and blend. We then sieved the smoothie to remove the lumps.

Some of the words used to describe how the drink tasted were

yummy lush fruity rough nutritious


Why don’t you try and make it at home? What words would you use to describe it?



We used

3 tangerines

2 pears

1/2 tin of pineapple


Can you invent your own smoothie? Bring your recipe to me and maybe we could try and make it at school.

Gardening News

Mrs Jay has worked so hard in Robins Rest and today, with a team of helpers, relined the pond. First we had to empty it into paddling pools, just in case there were any fish, before taking off the old lining.

We discovered so many creatures that had made their home around the edge of the pond but we were happy to not find any fish in the pond. (they would eat the Newt eggs)

Our next job was to put carpet in the bottom of the pond before adding the new lining. We then filled it back up with the old dirty pond water.

1. Put all the ingredients into a bowl.

2. Rub it all together by rubbing the mixture between your thumbs and fingertips.

New Kitchen

We have had a wonderful new kitchen installed over the Summer holiday in the hall. Two children have already been busy picking blackberries and raspberries for our school garden and making fruit crumble. Class 4 were the lucky tasters and said it was delicious.

If you would like to make your own then you will need:-

Serves 4–6
2 large cooking apples
100g blackberries
1 x 15ml spoon sugar
50g margarine OR butter
200g plain flour
100g caster sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan or gas mark 4.
2. Peel and chop the apples into small 2cm pieces.
Wash the blackberries.
3. Place the fruit into the bottom of the ovenproof dish
and sprinkle with sugar.
4. Now make the crumble topping. If using butter,
chop into 2cm pieces. Place the butter or margarine
in a mixing bowl with the flour.
5. Using clean hands, rub the butter or margarine
into the flour until it looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in
the sugar.
6. Scatter the crumble mixture on top of the fruit.
7. Place in the middle shelf of the oven and bake for
30–40 minutes until the crumble topping is golden.
8. When cooked, remove from the oven using
oven gloves.

I was so impressed by class 1’s mushroom growing skills.

It was also very tasty. We sauted it in a little bit of butter and ate it with French bread.   YUM!

Welcome to Let’s Get Cooking

We have an exciting term planned for Let’s Get Cooking and we are joining forces with the gardening club. Over the half term break we spent time in the school garden preparing the vegetable plot with the help from parents and children.All the classrooms are helping too by growing mushrooms, and starting off our beans , spinach, turnips and leeks.

Our plan is to use the vegetables we grow to make some lovely nutritious meals eg spinach mushroom and onion lasagne, carrot and coriander soup, mushroom Stroganoff and fruit crumbles to name but a few.

Cooking/gardening club will be held after school on a Wednesday and is for parents with their child. There are limited spaces so if you are interested please talk to the office. Sessions will start on 17/4/13.
