Farmer Duck

Farmer Duck

This week we have been continuing to learn about the season of autumn and the role that the farmers play in helping us by harvesting our food. As well as the lovely autumn treasures that you have brought into school this week, we were also delighted to receive several big bags of cooking apples – thank you so much! With a little adult support, the children peeled and chopped the apples, and made cake mixes, to produce three large apple cakes which were delicious. One person even said: “This is the best cake that I have ever eaten!” The left over apple slices were turned into apple crumble!  

The story of Farmer Duck is also moralistic and we have been discussing the benefits of helping each other at school and at home. Hopefully, you might have some ‘helpful hands’ at home this weekend.

We have continued to learn our harvest songs and have recorded them for you to enjoy.

Notes:

  • We would like any clean recyclable materials (e.g. cereal boxes, clean pots and kitchen rolls). Please could you bring them into school for the children to make models with. Thank you.
