Heron Class Visit Ludoquist

On Friday 8th November, Heron Class visited the board game cafe, Ludoquist, in Croydon. We were welcomed by staff had were spoilt for choice with great games to play. Everyone had a fabulous time. If you’d like to visit Ludoquist yourself, they have a great deal between Monday and Friday. If you book in advance, you can visit for two hours and it’ll only cost £2.00 per adult and £1.00 per child. This offer INCLUDES school holidays but they fill up fast, so booking is essential. Visit their website for more details: https://www.theludoquist.com/

Caribbean Food Tasting

Year 5 were treated to a range of different foods from the Caribbean to taste and review. We had great fun exploring foods, such as ackee, callaloo, hard dough bread, bulla cake and Jamaica ginger cake.

The classes voted on their most and least enjoyable foods and the bulla cake and Jamaican ginger cake were outright winners! The kidney beans and black beans had the least votes but the children recognised that they would be much tastier mixed with other food.

Photos will follow.
