Let’s Get Cooking

This week Newton Westpark Primary School held their first ‘Community Let’s Get Cooking’ event. Twelve families came along to take part in cooking easy, simple, cheap recipes from scratch that they could then replicate at home with their families. The event was a great success with three generations of families taking part; the children, parents and grandchildren all enjoyed eating the banquet of food together at the end. They even shared the washing and tidying up.

This has been a brilliant way for the community and our school to come together in a positive and friendly way. Thank you to all the parents, children and staff who took part. Below are the recipe cards if you would like to try any of the tasty meals we prepared! See photos from the event below the recipes.

Easter Baking!

This week in Year 4, we have been baking all kinds of treats to celebrate the Easter Holidays! We split our class into three groups and made three distinct desserts to suit anyone’s palate. Our first  group made Mini Egg chocolate bark! We smashed some Mini Eggs into tiny pieces with a rolling pin and spread them on a baking tray for a bottom layer crunch. Then we spread melted chocolate over the top of the Mini Eggs before adding another layer of Mini Eggs on top. We then put it in the fridge to set!

Next we made Easter Nest Cakes and made mini egg cupcakes. We did this by following a simple cup cake recipe and then added chocolate Rice Krispies and cornflakes to make a nest and topped with mini eggs. Please take a look at the photos below.

Harvest Assembly

Today was our Harvest assembly. This year, we decided to base our harvest assembly on being thankful for water. We can often forget how lucky we are to have clean water straight to our taps and rain that helps our crops grow. Each class shared poems, songs and information about water and lots of people donated food. Thank you for coming and for all of your generous donations!
