Enrichment Activities

W/E 19th October 2018

Cookery Club – To get ourselves into the mood for Halloween we made Cheese and Pumpkin Muffins which had tomatoes for devilish eyes and triangles of mozzarella for fangs!

They also made chipolatas with puff pastry twirled around them. I hope they try out some of this term’s recipes for you over the holiday.

Ultimate Frisbee – A new activity for Vinehall is running as part of our enrichment programme. Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact, self-refereed team sport played with a flying disc. Each team defends one endzone and scores a goal if one of their players catches the disc in the opposite end zone.  An energetic game being played on the sunken fence pitch.

Cooking – This week the children made Chunky Chocolate Brownies with varying degrees of success according to their weighing skills!

Ski Club – My youngest new recruit in ski club sporting a very cool helmet!  This week we took part in slalom relay races.  Those children are fast!  Lucy B thinks she beat me even when I had a head start.  Everyone seemed to agree with her, but I’m sure all their eyes are deceiving them because that can’t possibly be true!!!

Cookery Club – Much to the delight of the new cooks, it was their turn to make burgers with melted cheese and salad if they wished.  We had just enough ice-cream to make a small milkshake too.

Sewing Club – We have had a busy week at the sewing club. All of the children have been making patchwork cushions and have spent the last two sessions cutting out their patches. This week, the time came for us to start using the sewing machines and it didn’t take long for the nerves to subside and the real haberdashers to emerge!

As you can see from the pictures, sewing is well underway and soon the patches will form fabric cloth that will eventually made some stunning cushions.

Cooking – The children made chocolate chip cookies this week with varying degrees of success! I think some more accurate weighing skills are needed!
