Can you plait or weave? This skill can be used to create new products such as rope, belts and bracelets. Some of you designed and made bracelets with Mrs Squires/Miss Blakeman last summer term - have you still got the skill?

Cooking and Nutrition
Week 3 was making a healthy snack using cutting skills. Everyone, from Year 1 up to Year 6, should be able to use a knife to cut food safely, some of you will need adult help and that's absolutely fine.
First, you need to select your ingredients. It doesn't matter what fruit you use, use what is in the fruitbowl or buy fruit you like from the shop. You can also use tinned fruit, like pineapple, or dried fruit, like apricots. Bananas tend to go a bit mushy so avoid those if you can!
We used grapes, an apple and a pear, oranges, kiwi fruit, pineapple and apricot. You will need a small glass of orange juice or a squirt of lemon juice (it stops the apple and pear going brown).
Check with an adult before you do this bit.
Carefully peel and chop the fruit to the size you want. Look how Maggie is using the 'bridge cut' - it keeps your fingers safe!
