We’ve had a great end to the year this week with the children spending a couple of days completing their DT project for summer term. They were tasked with designing and making a new sushi aimed at children their own age, for the menu of a local restaurant. After spending some time tasting sushi and possible ingredients for their own design, as well as practising the skills of rolling the rice into the seaweed sheet, the children designed their ideal sushi filling. They worked hard to prepare their own ingredients and create some delicious final sushi! We can look back on a year where the children have worked hard across the curriculum and impressed us with their performance skills and confidence in all the creative tasks that they have tackled. It has been a great year for Beech and Elm, and we hope everyone has a relaxing and fun summer, maybe with some sunshine, and come back ready for Year 6 in September, we know you are going to be amazing.
