We have learnt so much about making pizzas. None of us could guess that there were 156 tomatoes in one large tin of tomato sauce and we were amazed that there are over 1500 varieties of mushrooms.

We have been very impressed with the home-learning tasks that have started to come in. Aran’s Irish soda bread and Gianluca’s panettone were undeniably delicious! These were wonderful examples of how children can bring their own wealth of family knowledge to enrich the learning of all their classmates. We have started designing Venetian masks and look forward to wearing the finished products.

During Maths, we have focused on measuring so we encourage the children to get their tape-measures out and to measure items around the home.
