At the start of the week we made apple coleslaw as our class entry for the school apple competition.
We thought it tasted great!
With our talk partners we have been practising tricky spellings.
In the Thursday group we are learning how to play traditional playground games such as Hopscotch, Duck, Duck, Goose and What’s the time Mr Wolf?
Today we all thoroughly enjoyed The Apple Festival.
We started the morning with ‘Wake and Shake’ led by the Primary 7’s. Followed by Metafit led by Mrs Brown.
Luckily the rain held off and we were able to go to the orchard where we used our mental maths skills to solve tricky addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems.
In the Apple Crafts session we made some Christmas pegs and apple bird feeders.
The tasting session came next.
We pressed apples and tasted delicious fresh apple juice made the old fashioned way.
Apples were cored and twirled.
Delicious juices were made, we really liked the apple and ginger combination.
The Apple Festival was rounded off with a Toast to the Orchard with our very own freshly pressed apple juice.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the Apple Festival so enjoyable.
