Try New Things

This week Magpie tried kiwis, mango and dragon fruit. The children had mixed reviews about the dragon fruit but they were amazed at the colour of the fruit and the skin it had!

Should organ donation be compulsory or voluntary?

In the UK once you have reached the age of 18 you have the choice to donate your organs to those who may need a transplant because they are ill. When you are children it is down to your parents to decide whether or not to donate organs. Many people do donate their organs or are on the organ donor register. They do this by choice. Do you think it should be compulsory (they have to do it) or voluntary (their choice)? Comment below and leave your opinion.

Trying New Things

Today the children tried lemons, limes and sugar snap peas for the trying new things part of their homework.

Many of them enjoyed the sugar snap peas and limes but they either hated or loved the lemon.

Look at the faces the children pulled when they had the lemon.
