Noodles, Reindeer and Remembrance in Outdoor Education
Room 19 have been looking at preparing food for our Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award. We tested 2 different brands of noodles, and enjoyed eating them both. Even those who were not sure, once they tried them, discovered that they were nice to eat.
We assembled and used a Trangia stove to boil water, and add then added to the dried noodles. Part of our assessment will be making a hot meal, from scratch, using a stove.
We have also cooked sausages outside which were very popular.
This week we even made hot chocolate, heating up chocolate milk on a stove.
We all agree – food tastes better when cooked outside!
Outdoor learning has looked at using natural materials like grass, beech nuts and twigs to make textured animals. We have made spikey hedgehogs from twigs. We also made soft fluffy reindeer for their fur, and small twigs to make their antlers. Some of our reindeer also had a shiny red nose like Rudolph.
We also made poppies to celebrate Armistice Day out of heart shaped pieces of red paper. We were using scissors, paint, different colours to recreate poppies in the wild.
