International day – Year 6 go healthy ITALIANO!

Using a range of fresh ingredients, we worked in our groups to InventOur own alternative to a basic spaghetti bolognese (cooked for us by Miss Carrahar.) our meat/alternative selection included: beef mince, pork mince, turkey mince, quorn mince and vegetables.

Our pasta/alternative included tagliatelle, butternut squash, courgette, wholemeal spaghetti and carrot.

We could choose from a range of vegetables, oils, flavourings and herbs. We planned and cooked our recipes ourselves under supervision.

In addition, we were taught how to make ‘galettes’ an alternative to pizza. Again, we had a choice of ingredients. We had enough bolognese left over to feed Year 3!

Year 3 Catania project

As part of our geography work this term year 3 has been researching the city of Catania in Sicily. We are learning about volcanoes and earthquakes and picked Catania to learn about because it is a coastal area like South Shields but with a huge volcano called mount etna.

We used the school iPads to research facts about South Shields and Catania and we compared details like their location, population and land use.IMG_0469
