I love the home learning projects that our children create!!  We are always so thrilled with such a variety and range of exciting ideas and inventive thinking!  From poetry to cakes, musical compositions to models, powerpoint to films – you name it, we’ve seen the lot!

What is so brilliant is that when the projects work well, they engage the children, members of the family and friends alike.  They inspire other children with ideas and teach us that there are so many ways to access new learning in fun and unique ways.

Today I have been fortunate enough to be treated to two separate examples.  The first is from a girl in Phase 2 who is currently exploring the topic ‘Food Glorious Food’.  Amber chose to write a poem, using personification to explore what it would be like to be a piece of Parmesan cheese:

My Life as Parmesan

In the cold dark fridge I spend most of my day,
Silently waiting for the Humans to say
“Would you like some Parmesan with your meal, mate?”
Then out of the fridge I come for someone to grate.
They shave off my armpits and chop off my toes,
How much they want, nobody knows.
Will I be put with spaghetti, pizza or bolognese sauce?
I do hope the family aren’t eating a horse.
Then back in the fridge I go and start to weep,
Half of me is missing, I can’t get to sleep.
Then I realise how lovely I taste
And not to be eaten is such a waste.


The second wonderful example is a film put together by Zac over half term, helping us all to learn about the wonders of Jupiter for the Phase 3 topic of ‘Space’.  Enjoy!
