In Design Technology this half term the children are looking at cooking and nutrition, concentrating on eating seasonally.

The children have been learning the different technqiues of cutting and peeling seasonal fruit and veg.

At the end of the topic the children went to Our Lady's to cook their seasonal tarts which they have created using the cutting techniques which they learnt. They used ingredients such as courgettes, pepper, mushrooms and tomatoes.

Marist centre

The Year 3 children have been visiting the Marist centre to help them with Reconciliation. This is an important part of them eventually taking their first Holy Communion. The children learnt about the importance of saying sorry and forgiving, just like Jesus teaches.
