Miss Devey's 'Old School Cake' Challenge!

Miss Devey's 'Old School Cake' Challenge! 2

Happy Saturday everyone! It's Miss Devey. I hope everyone is well.  I've loved seeing your Lego  creations. Yesterday, I woke up and couldn't stop thinking about cake! So, Millie and I decided to recreate our lovely school cake which I know we all enjoy when it's on the school menu. It was delicious! Therefore, my challenge to you is to have some fun baking your own school cake at home. You can see mine and Millie's above as well as the ingredients. 

Mix all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Don't worry if you don't have vanilla essence, just add a teaspoon of water and it still tastes yummy.

Pour the mixture into a well greased tin and put in the oven for 25-35 minutes (until golden on the top). Your oven should be set to 160 degrees or 140 degrees if you have a fan oven or gas mark 3.

Ask your parents for some help with this.

When the cake is ready, carefully (with the help of an adult) lift your cake out and leave to stand for 10 minutes before you take it out of the tin. Then leave the cake to cool before icing.

Make sure you email in puctures of your finished cakes so that we can put them on the school page! We can't wait to see them! And... be sure to share with your parents!!

Enjoy!

Pets Cornerheart

 

Lots of you have mentioned that you have pets. Send us a picture of your furry friends and introduce them to the rest of the class.

 

 

 

Sherbet the hamster

Sherbet the hamster 1

KitKat

My pet is called Kit-Kat. She is a tabby cat who loves being outside. As soon as I get up she begs me for her breakfast but I don't give her any because I wait for my parents to get up. Just as I'm going to sleep at night she will jump on my chest and keep me awake. But when she finally goes down stairs she will torture my parents.

Olive and Jeff

We are Olive and Jeff. We are very greedy and love going for walks. Sometimes we can be a little bit naughty together and chew things left about.

Picture 1

Storm and Goku

Here is a photo of my guinea pigs.

They are called Storm and Goku. 

There are both brothers and get along with each other. They live in my room in a big pen. Most of the time when I read upstairs at night they both fall asleep when I read to them in their wooden houses but sometimes it is quite hard to tell because all guinea pigs keep their eyes open when they sleep.

Daisy

This is Daisy, she is my 6 year old Cocker Spaniel. Daisy likes dog agility, chasing squirrels and dressing up as a unicorn.

Benji

This is Benji, he is a Poochon which is a mix between a toy poodle and a bichon frise. He is 3 years old and I enjoy spending lots of time with him. He gets told off a lot for pinching and eating socks & slippers. He likes to bark at people passing by and his favourite toy is a plastic bone that smells of bacon. Oh and he likes to hide sausage rolls in your bed.

Nala

Nala is a tabby cat who we rescued when she was eight months old. Nala loves to eat and loves to be in my room with me and she cuddles me all the time. She is also very cheeky because she always eats Charley’s food. Her and Charley always fight and whenever they do she tries to climb up to the very top of her cat stand.

Charley

Charley is a crazy dog - he is two years old and his birthday is four days after mine. Also, he runs around the house looking for treats and always barks at random things like the door, his toys and outside. Nala is  not a huge fan of him because he annoys her all the time, he also likes to sleep under the blanket on my mum and when my baby cousin is round, he tries to lick her.

This Charley and Gary. 

Charley is 8 years old and is a ginger tom cat. He loves sleeping all day and can be pretty grumpy most days. He loves sitting in the sun and chasing Gary, who annoys him constantly.

Gary came to join us on January 1st last year. He loves marmite, and climbing curtains and book cases. He can also play catch!

 

Don’t worry if you haven’t a pet- Aimee has found a way of creating your own!

 

I couldn’t do this on the I-pad but could do it on my phone. Follow Aimee’s instructions to create some more ‘interesting’ pets...

 

You go onto safari or google and you search up a real animal. This is not an app. Scroll down and you should find something that says view in 3D. Click on it if you do and it will ask you to move your device. Do this and the 3D animal will appear. If you don’t find this the animal, it won’t be on there. You can take pictures by pressing the white button and you can take videos by holding it down. You can also change the size of the animal and you can move it around. Hopefully this will work!

 

Finally, Aimee, I got it!

At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.

 

How many can your child read?

 

On your marks…

          get set…

                                and READ!

Awesome Australia!

This half term, our topic is Australia. We have been designing leaflets to encourage people to visit this magnificent country. We have been researching the best places to visit in the country. The children have been participating in small adverts, trying to persuade the teachers to fly to Australia, using language to entice the listener.

Green Fingers!

In our new, large classroom, we are able to keep indoor plants! We enjoyed growing flowers last year and they are a welcome addition to our room. Each table has one or two plants to cultivate. We've named them and they are doing really well, despite over-enthusiastic watering in the first week!
