World Book Day 2013

We went to the Co-op to support our maths work on money.  We had to find the ingredients to make Spaghetti Bolognese.  We had to find the cheapest and the most expensive ways of making this meal.  The cheapest way cost £4.07 and the most expensive way was £8.17!

We went to Cactus Jacks to learn more about the Mexican culture.  We found out how families share food at meal times, listened to Mexican music and looked at Mexican art.  We had a 2 course meal and some of us tried spicy food for the first time!  We made our own fajitas and ate as many nachos as we could! 

In art we have been making Sun Stones using clay.

We had a great time at Intech.  We reallly enjoyed learning about the different aspects of science.
