Striped fruit juice lollies
400ml 100% pure orange juice smooth
8 small strawberries, sliced into 8 pieces
160ml 100% pressed forest fruits juice
Line up 8 ice lolly moulds. Pour 2 tbsp orange juice into each. Put in the freezer for 1 hr.
Divide the strawberries evenly between each mould. To get the fruit to show in the finished lollies, make sure you press the berries into the side of the moulds. Cover each one with 1 tbsp forest fruit juice. Leave to freeze for 30 mins, then push a lolly stick into each. Return to the freezer for 1 hr.
Remove from the freezer and add 2 tbsp orange juice to each mould for the final layer. Return to the freezer for at least 2 hrs to make sure the lollies are fully set.
Briefly dip the lolly mould in warm water to release the ice. Eat straight away.
Tip: It’s easy to change the flavours: simply swap the juice to your preferred choice, but use the same quantities.
You can still make these if you do not have ice lolly moulds – simply wash out and reuse empty yogurt pots. You may need to increase the quantities of juice for each layer.
Tropical ice-cream floats
225ml mango juice
225ml passion fruit juice
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
Divide the mango and passion fruit juice between 4 tall glasses. Add a scoop of ice cream to each glass and top up slowly with sparkling water to form a tall, frothy head on each drink.
Serve with straws and long spoons to scoop up the ice cream.
Frozen fruit yogurt bites
80g pack mango and pineapple fingers
1 kiwi fruit, halved
500g Greek yogurt
Line a 12-hole muffin tin with cupcake cases. Let children use a butter knife to chop the strawberries, mango and pineapple into bite-size pieces. Scoop out the kiwi flesh with a dessert spoon and then children can chop with a butter knife. Set the fruit aside.
Put a dollop of yogurt in each cupcake case, so that each is about a third full.
Using a teaspoon, dot a little fruit coulis on top of the yogurt in each case, then swirl with a teaspoon. Arrange the chopped fruit on top. Transfer the muffin tin to the freezer for 2½ hours, or until completely frozen. Remove the cases from the tin and serve on plates or in their cases.
This week has been a strange week for Amber class because we have been learning from home! The children in Amber class were fantastic in how they adapted and responded to this new change. Selecting winners this week was a difficult decision as we have so many amazing children! Congratulations to these children who really shone and were able to show their commitment towards their learning.
Well done to Theo and Adam who have shown a growth mindset this week by embracing challenges!

Well done to Adam and Safira who have both demonstrated a growth mindset by pushing themselves and overcoming barriers.
Read the attached word document which contains the poem about The Highwayman. Once you have read the poem, answer the comprehension questions. You could also try and identify some of the language features we have been exploring in our lessons and use the grid below to help you.
This week, we have been exploring the character of Tim the ostler in the poem called The Highwayman. We were able to write a character description and use ‘show not tell’ techniques, expanded noun phrases, figurative language and powerful phrases to show character traits.
His mind was a curse of fury and destruction. Tim the ostler glared at Bess and hissed her name. Reckless, raging, resentful- he was jealous of The Highwayman. His eyes were exploding with anger. Like a predator, he looked at The Highwayman with green envy in his eyes. Sneakily and Slyly, Tim would listen.
Lurking in the darkness, Tim the ostler sat listening. Rusted greed stained his callous mind. His yellow straw-like hair, which looked like a wig glued on, was disheveled. Raging, reckless, resentful- his ears steamed up with anger. Inside his mouth, his razor-sharp teeth showed when he snarled. Like a predator watching its prey, he glared at The Highwayman. Crimson anger consumed his body. Spine-chilling, his eyes watched carefully. Sneakily and swiftly, he vanished into the darkness.
Dangerous, devious, disgraceful- Tim’s heart was full of anger. Fiery hatred darted around his body. His soul destroying eyes were as dark as the midnight sky. His long, slithery tongue surrounded by yellow teeth hissed as he observed Bess. Stealthily and swiftly, he disappeared into the darkness while his nostrils flared out of frustration. Sinister rage devoured from within. His mind was corrupted by burning rage.
