Creating An Exciting New Menu at Edmund Waller

During the last school council meeting, councillors shared the feed back from their classes, about what they like

about school dinners and what could be improved

Today, Angela the Operations Manager at Chartwells visited the School Council to talk about school meals at

Edmund Waller.

The councillors started by telling her their ideal school meals. She noticed that very few of the children

mentioned vegetables and explained that companies who provide school meals have to follow the government

Food Standards.

They also need to bear in mind some other factors, such as the equipment available in the kitchen and what

children like to eat. The councillors used this information to redesign their ideal school meals.

We will be talking with the Chartwell development chef and Angela will return in the Summer term to give the

school councillors a tour of the school kitchen.

Visit from a Year 4 child

Earlier today, we were lucky enough to have a very special visitor: Chiara from 4A! Chiara taught Reception C children some painting techniques, helped them with their maths puzzles and read them a story. The children absolutely loved learning from an older child at Edmund Waller, and called her “Miss Chiara” as she was such a good teacher. Chiara told us that she dreams of becoming an artist or a teacher in the future. We think she would be fantastic as either or both of these!

Superhero week

We have continued our Heroes and villains topic with a week dedicated to our favourite superheroes. We have been enjoying the books Super Daisy by Kes Gray and Nick Sharratt, and Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero, by Anne Cottringer and Alex T Smith.

Yesterday, members of Reception C transformed into superheroes for our memorable event. We did a lot of acting, playing in role and talking about our special powers. We selected and used different resources such as Lego, craft straws and recyclable materials to create superhero gadgets. We wrote lines of speech using the high frequency word ‘said‘ to enhance our super powers.
