Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

A sandwich fit for the Queen.

This term, Year 2 have been reading Halibut Jackson by David Lucas. We have had so much fun learning all about camouflage (we even tried to camouflage ourselves), materials and designing lots of different outfits for Halibut Jackson to wear. 

Hollie designed a traditional dress for Halibut to wear.
Anaya designed a traditional outfit from her culture.
"To camouflage we have to match the colours in our background" Mila.










This week we were shocked to find out that Halibut Jackson had received a very special invitation to a party. But it was not just any party, it was a party at the Queen's glistening palace! Halibut Jackson had lots to do to prepare such as, making a new dress and some sandwiches fit for a Queen. But Halibut Jackson had a huge problem. He didn’t know how to make a sandwich! Luckily, Kingfishers and Nightingales were able to offer their expert assistance.

I wonder what sandwich you would serve to the Queen?

"I think the Queen would like a peperoni sandwich". Ben 

First, we took control of our kitchens and began to design our sandwiches. We thought very carefully about what filling the Queen might like and the small steps we need to take. We even practised using our imperative verbs to help Miss Hamilton and Miss Coulam make their sandwiches (we made a huge mess).

Look at some of our amazing creations!

Next, we wrote our instructions for Halibut Jackson. We made sure that our instructions were clear and concise. Can you spot all the imperative verbs in our instructions?

 I wonder if you can follow our instructions to make a sandwich that is fit for the Queen?
