Friday 26th June

Reading

I had a great suggestion for this reading task from one of you this week!! Thank you!

 

As it's Friday, I'd like you to read the following recipes and maybe even have a go at following one of them over the weekend or next week. If you do, don't forget to send a picture of whatever you make!

Pitta Bread Pizza

Ingredients (makes 2):

  • 2 pitta breads
  • 1 Tbsp tomato puree
  • handful grated mozzarella cheese
  • extra pizza toppings of your choice (optional)

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas Mark 4).
  2. Prepare any toppings you want to add to your pizza.
  3. Place the pitta breads on an oven tray.
  4. Spread a thin layer of tomato puree over the top of each pitta bread, going right to the edges.
  5. Sprinkle over the grated cheese, again, going right to the edges.
  6. Add your pizza toppings. You can arrange them in fun shapes (faces are always fun!) or just sprinkle them evenly over the pizzas – it’s entirely up to you! 
  7. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  8. Leave to cool for a few minutes before serving, then serve whole or cut into slices.

 

Alternative Pizza Base Ideas:

If you don’t have/like pitta breads, try other breads for the pizza bases – unless indicated below, they all cook in the same way, for 8-10 minutes in the oven. Here are some suggested bread ideas that work really well for pizza bases: 

  • English Muffins (split in half)
  • Bagels (split in half)
  • Tortilla Wraps (cook for a slightly shorter time – 5-8 minutes)
  • Flatbread
  • Naan bread
  • Baguette (split in half lengthways)

Mini Quiches

Ingredients

  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 slices (about 35g) ham
  • 50g cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 pack (250g) readymade short crust pastry
  • 4 large eggs

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (Gas mark 4/350°F).  Spray or brush a 12 hole muffin tin with a little oil.
  2. Deseed and chop the red pepper into small pieces (ask an adult to help you with this bit). 
  3. Chop the ham into small pieces.
  4. Grate the cheddar cheese.
  5. With scissors, cut the tops and bottoms off the spring onions and discard. Use the scissors to cut the spring onions into small pieces.
  6. Mix all of your prepared ingredients together in a bowl and put to one side.
  7. Break the eggs into a small jug or bowl. Whisk until well mixed. Add a little salt and pepper if wanted.
  8. Scatter a handful of flour onto a smooth surface and roll out the pastry.
  9. Using a large circle cutter cut out 12 circles of pastry.
  10. Push a pastry circle into each hole in the muffin tin to form a cup.
  11. Spoon some of the vegetable and cheese mixture into each cup.
  12. Pour over the whisked eggs to cover the mixture and fill the cups up.
  13. Bake in the preheated oven for approx. 20 minutes until puffed up and golden.
  14. Remove from the muffin tin and cool on a wire rack.
  15. Serve warm or cool completely and store in the fridge until ready to eat.

Fruity Jam Tarts

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pack (250g) ready made shortcrust pastry
  • strawberry jam
  • 1 dessert apple
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 200g strawberries

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (Gas mark 4/350°F).  Spray or brush a 12 hole muffin tin with a little oil.
  2. Scatter a handful of flour onto a smooth surface and roll out the pastry. Using a large circle cutter (We used the largest of our nesting crinkle edged circle cutters) cut out 12 circles of pastry.

  3. Push a pastry circle into each hole in the muffin tin to form a cup, then drop a small teaspoon of jam into the bottom of each pastry cup.

  4. Mix the lemon juice into a bowl of cold water.  Peel, core and chop the apple and soak in the lemon water, then drain the apple pieces and pat dry.

  5. Wash, hull and chop the strawberries into quarters, then fill up the tarts with the apple and strawberry pieces.

  6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden and the fruit is cooked through.

     

Writing

This summer, we should have been able to watch the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. However, due to Coronavirus, they will be held next year instead.

 

Here is a story-writing task connected to the Olympic Games:

 

It is the Olympic Games. The fastest sprinters in the world are lined up on their starting blocks. The fastest sprinters in the world... and you! You are about to compete in the 100 metre race. As you wait for the official to fire her starting pistol, the huge crowd hold their breath in anticipation. 

 

What happens next? Use the words, phrases and sentence openers below to help you write your story.

 

It might be a good idea to colour code the words and phrases before you start, deciding which sentences you will use in the introduction, the middle and the end.

Maths

For today's maths, you have a problem solving activity

You'll need to read the instructions very carefully and have a clear understanding of addition (mental or written) to be able to tackle the problem.

Topic - PSHE

Sometimes, when we feel worried or anxious, it's hard to remember what is important for us and who is important to us. COVID-19 and being at home so much has made some of us feel a bit like this.

 

Today, I'd like you to create a 'Priority Pyramid' to help you remember what's important.

Draw a pyramid in your workbooks (like the one below) and then place each word/phrase where you feel it should go.

 

being safe food feeling loved computer games
hobbies family trying your best being good at sports
being good at spellings being kind friends shelter
having nice clothes being respected staying active toys

 

Send me a picture of your pyramids when you finish - I won't post them on the class page.
