#hactonathome Week 6

Here are some fantastic pictures from your Hacton at Home learning this week (with a few snowy fun ones thrown in too). As your teachers, we have loved seeing the engagement with your work this half term and are really proud of each and every one of you. Have a restful week off! 



We 







Year 6: Pancake Bonanza

Year 6 have shown their fantastic culinary skills this week - taking  part in our Year 6 pancake competition. 

There have been stacks of American style pancakes,  plates full of crepe style pancakes and a whole host of toppings shown on them too including: maple syrup, Nutella, berries and lemon and sugar - the list is positively endless. We even had a fabulous pancake flipper: this really impressed us! They have also focused on their presentation skills and have really put Miss Emes, Mrs Batty and Mrs Marriner to shame! 


The winner is yet to be announced...we will keep you guessing and let you know on the Monday that we return to Hacton at Home. 


Well done Year 6 - we look forward to seeing more of these skills being shown off in the coming weeks.  Have a fabulous half term!




 

Year 2: Art

Year 2 have been looking at the work of the 16th Century Italian artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo – a painter best known for creating some incredibly imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and books. Year 2 took on the challenge of creating a portrait in the style of Arcimboldo, making it entirely from food, and I think you will agree that their works of art are just as imaginative and incredible as the man’s himself. Well done Year 2!​




Year 2: Baking Club

Our Year 2 children have continued to amaze us this half term with their talents and another talent to add to their ever-growing list is that of ‘Baker’. Whilst we have been schooling at home, Year 2 have been planning ‘Time Out’ into their weekly routine to focus on things that they enjoy doing and we have found some very skilled chefs. From biscuits to cupcakes to more elaborate large cakes; from pizzas to sausage rolls; from healthy snacks to vegan tarts: our team of cooks have made it all and our Baking Club is going from strength to strength! 

Our next challenge is the pancake challenge where children will be sharing their Shrove Tuesday pancake feasts with us. How do you have yours? Lemon and sugar? American style in a stack? Covered in chocolate spread? We are really looking forward to seeing the pancake creations after half term. 

Have a wonderful half term break… and BAKE!



Hacton at Home Plus: Nature Detectives Competition

In the Hacton at Home Plus folder on Google Drive there is a brand new Nature Detectives competition for you to go and take part in. There is a fantastic prize to be won of a brand new nature book. Everybody who takes part will also receive a certificate. We can't wait to see your entries. Have a fantastic half term!
