Are Carrots Orange?


F2 children

Our topic this half term is ‘Are carrots orange’?  We have already planted a range of seeds to try and grow some unusual coloured vegetables.  We will keep checking their progress and hopefully we will have some of our own vegetables to eat in the summer.

On Wednesday 25th of April the F2 children went to visit Asda.  We had a super visit, the children really enjoyed looking for the different fruit and vegetables on their spotter sheets.  Thank you to all the families who supported this visit, and a big thankyou to Hayley and the staff at Asda for welcoming us.  Next week Hayley is going to come into school and work with the children.  They will be tasting a range of different foods and vegetables and finding out where in the world they come from.

We have shared a range of stories related to this topic and are particularly looking forward to ‘The Enormous Turnip’, as the children get the chance to make their own enormous fruit/vegetable story. We look forward to hearing them!

As part of this topic we will be talking about healthy foods and encourage the children to make healthy choices at school and at home. So, please talk about this with your child.


F2SM would like to wish everyone HAPPY BABA MARTA,

In Bulgaria, there is a special celebration called Baba Marta.  For this special bracelets are tied around the wrists of friends and families on March 1st. They are then take off when Spring arrives and the birds start coming back and the flowers start to grow.

Katherine’s mother made us all a special tie to celebrate Baba Marta and below is a picture of us wearing them.  We would like to thank her very much for this and we are all eagerly waiting for Spring to arrive.
