Chestnut Class food art

This term, Chestnut Class have been studying food in all of it's finest forms.  In art, they have been studying artists who use food to create art.  One of their biggest influences has been Giuseppe Arcimboldo.  After studying the methods, creating a design, today was the day they created their final art installations.  They look good enough to eat!

Chestnut Class visit to Heckington Windmill

As part of our Scrumdidlyumptious topic, we are looking at food, from farm to plate and studying the history of bread.  This meant that we could visit a very impressive feature of our local community, Heckington Windmill.  We were lucky enough to go right up to the top, which was very scary, and learn how the flour is made through every arduous stage.  We were also lucky enough to visit the brewery to learn how beer is made.  It was a very exciting and educational morning.

Wild Woodcraft

Today, Chestnut class have had a wonderful day on their Stone Age topic trip at Wild Woodcraft.  We have built dens, made fire, gutted, cooked and eaten fish and so much more.  We learned just how long the period of the Stone Age was, we discovered the Stone Age man was very intelligent and quite ingenious.  We had a wonderful day and were very lucky that the rain held off.

How does water travel from the roots on a plant?

Today, Chestnut class wanted to discover how water travels from the root on a plant.  So, we decided to set up an investigation.  The children will given free reign to investigate however they choose.  They decided what they would do, how they would do it and how they would make sure that it was a fair investigation, to ensure that our results were reliable.  We made sure that we made a hypothesis before we began.  We used, celery, water, food colouring and a container.  What would you have done with this equipment?  What do you think will happen?  We can't wait to find out!

Stone Age Poo!

As part of our Stone Age topic, we asked the question, What did hunter-gathers eat and how did they get it?  So to answer this question today, we looked at poo, lots of poo.  We cut up our poo and compared the contents.  Was it Stone Age poo, or poo from modern man?  We discovered what Stone Age man ate and then looked at just how he came about hunting or gathering this food and how their diet differed from ours.  It was quiet a lesson, a lesson I doubt we will forget easily.
