ROALD DAHL DAY
At Fusion this week we have been celebrating the Jewish Festival – Rosh Hashanah and learning about the New Year. We made some honey biscuit to celebrate a sweet new year, we played Bingo with symbols of the festival and made our own ‘Shofar’ which is a rams horn trumpet which is used to symbolise religious ceremonies!
Roald Dahl week!
Can you work out what animals are from what book?
Did you know…..
He invented more than 500 new words and character names.
He wrote most of his books in his garden shed.
One of his most famous books almost had a different name.
His books were inspired by the people and things around him.
Roald Dahl fought in WW2 and was a spy.
Ahoy there.. we celebrated International talk like a pirate day.
We had to find all the gold that was hidden around the playground. We walked the plank, made pirate hats and treasure maps, read a pirate story, learnt about famous pirates and even worked out what our pirate name was and some pirate phrases.
LETTER S WEEK
FOOD AROUND THE WORLD
This week we have been making cakes! We practiced different types of icing and frosting using different methods.
Did you know….
The term ‘cupcake’ was originally used in the late 19th century for cakes made from ingredients measured by the cupful. The traditional pound cake recipe was easy to remember for its pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of flour, and a pound of eggs. Likewise, the name “cupcake” comes from how the recipe was measured: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs.!
