Soup making!

Yum yum! Our soup is smelling delicious!

Today we made tomato soup, carrot and coriander soup and leek and potato soup (with potatoes from our school allotment). They are cooking overnight in the slow cookers ready for lunch tomorrow!

   

               

John Lewis

Today we got the train to John Lewis in Watford.  When we got there we were met by a lady called Pearl who told us about John Lewis.  We did 4 different activities:

The first one was the toy department where we had to test and evaluate four different toys: a remote control spider, bop it, a giant floor piano and buzz wire. Our favourite was the spider.

We then went on a branch tour. We went into the basement to see the loading bay where a lorry was being loaded with a washing machine. We also saw the Christmas decorations in the stock room.

Next was table top where we saw the china. The lady told us how they have to label all the prices! Then we saw all the Christmas chocolates on display! They looked delicious, especially the giant gingerbread reindeer!

Finally, we got to go behind the scenes in Little Waitrose.  We learnt about best before dates and ambient foods. We got to go into the fridge to see and then the freezer!!!!  We met the baker who let us try on his oven gloves! The worst part was the smelly bin!

Paige was very lucky and won a gift voucher for her toy evaluation!

After all that, John Lewis provided us with a yummy lunch of pizza and sandwiches.  We even got to meet the store manager!

On the way home we stopped at the playground in Cassiobury park to try out the play equipment!

What a super day we had!

Soup

Today in class we have tried 10 different flavours of soup. Some of the soups we had never tried before.

We really enjoyed them and we will be making our own soup next week!
