Blue Base Updates: Music sessions

Thank you to Mr Wallace for visiting us twice a week to practise the Joseph songs in preparation for our performance. The children have such beautiful singing voices and we are really pleased with how well they work when Mr Wallace is here and all the children are altogether in blue base.

It makes it very exciting when we all get together to prepare for the performance because it means the coffee afternoon is nearly here and that is always a wonderful afternoon for all involved.

Maroon Base have been cooking again!

This week we were looking at using pulses. We decided to make beans on toast and hummus.

Everyone has had beans on toast before, but we were finding out how easy it is to make for ourselves.

We found out how to make hummus using chick peas, oil and garlic (with some other ingredients).

We mixed the ingredients and used a hand blender to make it nice and smooth.

It tasted great, and lots of other people appeared in the room as they wanted to try it.

We could smell the garlic A LOT!!!!!

Maroon Base Updates: Cannock Chase

On Wednesday, Maroon base went out to Cannock Chase for the day - we have been learning about living things and their habitats. We went on a nature walk  around Birches Valley centre and saw lots of interesting things. Someone had made a shelter from branches and some of us rolled down a steep grass bank. We even found the Gruffalo!

Blue Base Updates: Assessment

We are always pleased with how well the children work during assessment week. We have very sensible workers in Blue Base and during assessment week, Blue Base’s timetable has to swap around a little bit. The nature of our children, this could prove quite difficult but they were wonderful when it came to slotting some assessments in.

Green Base Updates: PANTS

The NSPCC visited us this week to talk to the children about ‘PANTS’ and the aim is to equip the children with keeping themselves safe using the character, Pantosarus and reminding them of the underwear rule.  It is a fun way of getting across to the children something which is important to know and understand.

Blue Base Updates : Kingswood

On Thursday, the children took a trip out to Kingswood to visit the Lego man. He was at Kingswood and the children met him there for an adventure filled day using IPads and exploring in the forest.

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the children got to explore in the forest using their Ipads to read the QR codes that were hiding in different places.

Maroon Base have continued improving their culinary skills.

This week we have been looking at carbohydrates - in particular pasta. We had a look at all the different shapes pasta comes in, and we decided to cook with spaghetti and pasta twists. We made sure that the pasta cooked for the right amount of time in the boiling water and that it didn't stick together or go too soft and slimy. We added a tomato pasta sauce to the spaghetti, and a carbonara sauce to the twists.
