Our Trip to Ambury Farm

On Tuesday we had an amazing trip to Ambury Farm! First of all we went to see the sheep being dagged. After that we went to see the cows being milked. Then we had lots of fun walking around the farm and feeding the animals. We had lunch and then we had a lovely walk through the paddocks and down to look at the harbour.

Safe Walking with Constable Harwood

Constable Harwood came into talk to us about being safe when we are crossing the road. He told us that we need to look everywhere, look up and down, look behind as well. Do not just look left and right. Constable Harwood told us that lots of people use their phones to talk on or to text when they are driving so they are not paying attention. Do not think that cars will always stop when you are crossing at a pedestrian crossing. Keep looking everywhere when you are crossing the road. If you ever see white lights at the back of a car it means that the car is going to reverse so get out of the way. Watch out for sneaky driveways. We can hear an engine. We could hear crunching tyres. We can see the tyres moving.  If it is cold we might see the exhaust. We would see an adult in the drivers seat. If we are walking we go do not balance on the kerb or play on the road.

Today we made play dough. This is the recipe that we used:

In a large bowl place: 1 cup of salt, 2 tablespoons of Cream of Tartar

Then add: 3 cups boiling water, 2-3 teaspoons of food colouring, dye or paint powder, 4 tablespoons of oil

Mix well

Finally add: 2 cups of flour to wet mix, stir vigorously to combine then add 1-2 more cups of flour approximately and knead to combine.

Here are some photos of us making the play dough.
