Wish You Were Here….

We’re all off to Croft Farm on Wednesday 15th may until the end of the week. If we can get a Wifi link, perhaps we will update the site from deep in the Cotswolds.


Alex’s Tudor Food Project

This is an amazing project from Alex in Moneybury. This book is just beautiful and should be a real treasure to look back upon when Alex is older.

Well done to Fin W and Evie from Mounts together with Freddie and Alex from Moneybury, who won their heat of the Hertfordshire Year 5 Maths Challenge against a range of schools from across the Hemel and Rickmansworth areas.

We hope that they will now go forward to represent the school in the County finals in June.

Also well done to Skye who took part in a Judo competition at the weekend and was awarded a bronze medal, even though she was taking on opponents more than one and a half times her own weight.

Cameron managed to win an informal coin tossing prediction competition in Mounts today, not once but twice. To do this, he correctly predicted the toss of a coin on at least twelve occasions in a row. Does anyone know how likely or unlikely this feat is?


Still more History projects

Jacob in Moneybury produced this beautifully designed Recipe Book for his Tudor project earlier in the year. A lot of time and effort has gone into this. Click the link for the interactive book:


Zoe’s Tudor Project

Zoe from Moneybury worked hard to produce a great looking Powerpoint presentation. You can read it here as an interactive book:

Head Chef Kyle prepares a Pasty

Kyle made a wonderful cookery video as he presented on how to make a Pasty fit for Henry VIII. Here are some stills from his video:

Brown Fryes by Alex and Freddie

wpid-2013-01-23-12.17.50.jpgAlex must have spent the whole Christmas holiday thinking about food in Tudor times. We hope to display some more of his work later. Freddie and Alex made this film about making ‘Brown Fryes’ (we might call it “Eggy bread” today)
