Author of the week – The Four Seasons Kings

Welcome, this week to a guest mystery author.

The Four Season Kings was written and presented by our visiting author today in our school.

The Four Season Kings are the children of Mother Nature, and it is their role to control the seasons and in this tale of advenure we see them kidnapped by Trong and his band of Trommlins. This story is a classic tale of good triumphing over evil with Krystal, the Fairy Princess and her willing band of helpers (Pod 2A class) taking on the challenge.

Will they succeed?

Listen here to Parts 1 and 2 of ‘The Four Season Kings’

In the Kitchen this week

 Earlier this week we made a beef ragu, which is a fancy bolognese, where the beef and veg have been slow cooked in the oven for 3-5hrs until the meat falls apart in the sauce. We used lots of veg including the last of the zucchinis and eggplants, also carrots and onions and garlic from the garden, oh! And plenty of herbs, fresh and dried from our garden too!
We have made lasagna and pasta -spaghetti and pici. Pici is hand rolled and is excellent for holding sauces such as ragu/bolognese.
#MathsInTheKitchen – We have discussed RATIO’S, through making white sauce/Béchamel and in making a basic pasta dough eg. For every 100g flour we use 1 egg, for pasta.
    

Mystery author – Don’t let the pigeon have a hot dog party

This week’s secret author – listen in and please comment.

 

It was great to receive a few comments on last week’s story, The Spirit part 1 and we are looking forward to recording part 2.

Unfortunately, I have had a few problems in tracking down The Spirit’s author so I have managed to track down a new and upcoming author.
This week’s story, ‘Don’t let the pigeon have a hot dot party’ was inspired by the series of books written by Mo Williams.
Sit back, pop your feet up and enjoy our new story.
