Dear Primary 7,
I hope that you have enjoyed your taste of high school this week. It has been so lovely to see your photos and I hope that you enjoyed the activities as well. I had quite a lot of fun making the examples if I’m honest!
Next week, as you know, is the last week of term. I will be posting a grid for you, which apart from My World of Work, contains activities. I will be available online as usual if you are struggling with anything or would like to share what you have been doing.
In other news, this week I’m afraid I haven’t baked anything but that is because I have been planning props for a themed party. It’s my brother’s birthday at the weekend and we are planning a themed Harry Potter outdoor socially distanced party. There is really nothing I love better than a themed party! (You may have noticed my reference to this in my photo on Wednesday with the birthday bunting). Now I think about it, I’m pretty sure my brother had a Harry Potter themed birthday when he was 7 or 8 and now he’s having one when he’s turning 27!
In the photos you can see: Quidditch hoops for themed ping pong, Ferrero Roche snitches, treasure hunt clues, Mad Eyed Moody’s eye (no idea how my mum made that!) and Honeydukes sweet shop. I did make some homemade lemonade or Polyjuice potion as well. (My sister made the Honeydukes sweets and my fiancé made the Quidditch hoops, so I can’t take all the credit!). The recipe for the lemonade is below if you’d like to try it.
As always, if you have any questions or anything to share, please do email it to:
me directly, share it on TEAMS or firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a lovely weekend Primary 7.
You will need:
300g caster sugar
1 orange sliced
1 punnet of raspberries or strawberries
Ice and/or mint to serve
Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and pour over 350ml cold water.
Bring to the boil, stirring often, then leave to cool.
Pour through a sieve, pressing down with a spoon to extract all the juices.
The syrup can now be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.
To serve, pour a little into a glass and top up with sparkling or still water, ice and mint. Add the raspberries or strawberries to make it pink lemonade!
(Personally, I would add more lemons, but I like things with quite a sharp flavour. Hope you enjoy it!)
