Welcome back! I hope you all had a fun and safe Easter and are looking forward to the new term. For many of our subjects the topic will be based around Adventurers and Explorers. So get ready to learn about different parts of the world, from frozen expeditions in Antarctica to horseback adventures across the Mongolian Steppe.
You will learn what it took and takes to be an awesome adventurer!
Note for Parents - you may need to purchase these ingredients for your child to make Explorer Energy Bars on Thursday. If your child is allergic to nuts then substitute with dessicated coconut and do not use peanut butter.
1 heaping cup packed dates (pitted - means take the stones out)
1/4 cup syrup or honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup roasted unsalted almonds (loosely chopped // see instructions for roasting nuts)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free for GF eaters)
Chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, banana chips, vanilla, etc
