Farmer Ben asked us to design and make a container to carry the chick eggs safely from the farm to us.
We had great fun planning, making and best of all
testing our containers!
Some worked and some went
These containers did not work…
Why do you think these did not work?

Sam kept a record of our predictions and results. Thanks Sam.
Today something exciting happened. Emmeline and Helen were digging the the garden and they discovered that some potatoes had grown!
They found 8 potatoes!
We spoke about what we could make with the potatoes and some children said chips.
The potatoes were very dirty. We scrubbed them clean.
Then we carefully chopped the potatoes into smaller pieces. It was very tricky.
While we waited for the chips to cook, we wrote some signs to tell people to come to our chip shop!
We washed up.
Hooray the chips are ready! We shared them with our friends. They were delicious.
In Art, we have been experimenting with clay.
What could you do with the clay?
Push, roll, flatten, twist, pinch…
Can you think of any other actions?
Today, we visited the school library. We will now be visiting every Wednesday. We enjoyed reading lots of different kinds of books.
This is what some of us thought about our time in the library today…
“It was very relaxing” Julie-Grace
“It was very peaceful” Sam
“I liked the Where’s Wally books” Lorenzo
“I read our Penguin book in the library” Mason
Today we played with clay for the first time. We were a little bit reluctant at first but soon got stuck in and made lots of mess!
We used lots of language to describe the clay such as cold, wet, slimy and hard.
Next we used the clay to make a collaborative painting.
On Thursday 23rd January some children from Years 5 and 6 took part in a Basketball competition.
Well done to everyone! Everyone played really well and we are really proud of you! Holbeach were spotted as the most respectful team out of the many taking part. Ms Bozzao said that our team were very considerate of each other and that they showed that they knew the rules very well.
On Thursday 16th January some children from Years 3 and 4 took part in a basketball competition.
Here are some photos from this exciting event…
Well done team!
We went on winter walk. Before we left school we made predictions about the signs of winter we might find using our 5 senses. It was a beautiful frosty day and we definitely found lots of signs of winter.
We’ve been cooking again!
Last week we worked in groups to plan and cook omelettes. Everyone cracked an egg and helped chop and whisk. We even made a side salad.
The omelettes were delicious, well done chefs!
