Delicious home grown potatoes!

We cleaned and weighed our potatoes, before cooking them. Can you read the scale, to work out how much we grew?

We served them with our home made butter from yesterday. What do you think they tasted like?

Triangular poems

Class 6 have been writing some triangular poems using relative clauses. We wrote them about farm animals. Which ones do you like and why?

The Chicken

The chicken

who was pecking the seeds

that flew out of the way of the dog

was rumaging through the thick weeds

which was running through some dastardly fog.

by Andrew Y4

The Pig

The pig

who dragged his belly

which was heavy and really big

where he lived was extremely smelly

by Chelsea Y3

The Cow

The cow

who walked after the man

was chased by Wombridge the bull

Which had escaped from the farm with a lamb that was wooly

by Halle Y4

The Hog

The Hog

who was very lazy

which looked like a dog

was greedily scoffing down a daisy

by Cody Y4

The Dog

The Dog

Who chased his tail

Was trying to escape from a gale

which was part of a storm full of freezing hail

by Jack

How to make butter

For our bronze farming award you have to explain how to turn milk into butter, cheese or yoghurt. We had a go at making our own. What did we have to do in order to make butter?

Andrew’s river poem

Fishes live in a river ,

Which sometimes makes them shiver,

There are all different types of fish,

They wish not to be on a dish,

But some fish do,

And they don’t turn out new,

The fishes shout “hooray”,

When it’s the end if the fishing day!
