Como House Excursion

 

Step Back in Time

On Wednesday the 30th of August 1/2 BE and 1/2 PM went on an exciting excursion to old Como House. We went to Como House because we are learning about past and present.

First I came to school dressed like I was from the past. I wore a dress and an apron. Then we hopped on the shiny, white bus and drove to the Como House Mansion. When we got to the beautiful gardens, I ate my yummy snack.

After we finished our delicious snack, we started our exciting activities. My group first went into the beautiful Como House and learnt a fun dance. Our next activity was going on a mystery hunt to see who broke the doll.

Next we ate our lunch and had a rest. We had  two more activities to do. My group went and played old fashioned games outside. My favourite game was hot potato because it was fun. Our last activity was pretending to be a servant.

Finally it was time to go back to school. I had a great time at Como House because  I learnt more about the past.

Making Chocolate

Today 1/2 BE pretended to be Willy Wonka and created our own chocolate. We called it 1/2 BE Wonka Chocolate. These are the steps we followed:

  1. First carefully melt the chocolate.
  2. Next gently add marshmallows and MnMs.
  3. Then carefully mix it together.
  4. After that cautiously scoop the mixture into the tray.
  5. Finally gently place the tray in the fridge.

I hope you find a golden ticket in our bars!!!!!

StartSmart incursion

Today 1/2 BE had a visit from StartSmart who taught us to be superheroes with our money.

She taught about coins and the animals that are on the coins. We also learnt about the notes.

She taught us about keeping money safe and saving our money. We learnt to:

Speed for our needs and wait for our wants!

What was your favourite part of the incursion?

Mrs Sargood

Mrs Sargood Incursion

On Friday the 11th of August 1/2 BE had a special visit from Mrs Sargood. She visited us because we are learning about what life was like in the past.

First we walked quietly to the Italian Room. Mrs Sargood rang the bell and we had to line up like ladies and gentleman. We had to greet Mrs Sargood standing up.

Next Mrs  Sargood showed us pictures of her 11 children. She also showed us her special desk. Mrs Sargood let us see her cane that was used to punish the naughty children.

After that we used special ink pens to write. We had to be very careful when using the ink pens.

Finally we said goodbye to Mrs Sargood. My favourite part of the incursion was using the ink pens.
