What did one tomato say to the other tomato during a race?
30 Days Wild!
I had a lovely message from Abbie at The Wildlife Trusts yesterday. Here is what she said:
Hi Mrs Jones,
YOU MADE IT! A big well done to you and your Nursery Class for completing 30 Days Wild 2020 🎉
What a month... We’ve seen paintings of otters, poems about the sky, litter picks, wildflower planting, pond digging, and all sorts of wonderfully wild shenanigans. Thank you so much to you and your class for joining us to celebrate our wild world, we have been so inspired by your tweets, posts and photos every day and we’re already looking forward to next year!

Abbie also sent us some certificates to congratulate us for completing the 30 Days Wild Challenge! You can print one below, WELL DONE!!
Book of the Week

Today we are going to do an Understanding of the World (science) activity and an Expressive Arts and Design (art) activity.
Our science activity is from the farmyard this week! We are going to churn our very own butter! You can have it on some toast or a sandwich for your lunch!
You will need:
Double cream (at room temperature)
A jar with a lid
A medium sized bowl
A pinch of salt
Lots of energy!!
Here’s how to do it:
- Make sure your jar and lid are very clean! Wash up your jar and lid and rinse it well with lots of water.
- Pour the cream into the jar, about half full. You need some room in the jar for the cream to slosh about!
- Put the lid back on the jar and make sure it is on very tight! You don’t want cream all over the floor!!
- Next you have to…SHAKE! Shake and shake and shake some more! Keep shaking until your cream turns into whipped cream. Shake the jar some more until your whipped cream turns into butter! You will have some buttermilk in the jar too!
- Drain off the buttermilk and put the butter into the bowl with some water to ‘rinse’ it. This is so that your butter will keep for longer and wont spoil.
- Drain off the water and add the pinch of salt. Mix it in and your butter is ready!
- Spread your butter on your favourite snack, toast or bread, then enjoy!
Here is a blog about making butter with some pictures of how the butter should look at different stages. I hope you have fun, I love making butter!
If you have any energy left, you can have a go at our art activity which is to create a paper bag Goat! Thank you to Miss Wright for the idea! It’s great!
You will need a paper bag and the cutouts from the sheet below.
I hope you enjoy making your goat!
* Keep practising your name writing!
* Use your butter to help make lunch for your family! Yum!
Stay safe! Miss Wright and I miss you lots!
