On Marratech we learned how to work on documents in each other's folders.
We are working hard to make sure we have a healthy diet. At lunch today, for the 4th time running we ate all the fruit salad that we had for pudding; Valdik took a picture of the empty bowl to mark the occasion!

Today Caron, our ICT technician, came with 5 new webcams for our laptops and downloaded Marratech onto all our laptops - she worked out how we can use it on the network so now we can "video conference" with each other from different rooms. When we get GLOW we will be to use it to work with children in other schools.

We are just finishing a topic about The Homefront during WW2. Today we did some wartime cooking with Mrs Underwood; Feionne found a recipe on the internet. Some people said they would eat them if there wasn't anything else but they didn't really like them, which is probably what children in wartime thought too.

Potato Pancakes

1 lb mashed potatoes
½ lb cooked carrots, milk, salt and pepper


Whip mashed potatoes to a loose creamy consistency with a little milk.

Season well with salt and pepper.

Add diced carrots

Panfry slowly in very little fat until crisp and brown
