Welcome to Classes 11 and 12
Healthy Eating: The Fuss Free Foodie
The Fuss Free Foodie visited Year 5 this week. The children were totally engrossed and enjoyed the session which not only covered healthy eating and cooking but also included: new vocabulary, safety methods, maths and recycling! The children made a Cous cous salad and a Panzanella salad, they then tasted them both and discussed the different flavours to see which they preferred – they were both delicious!
Stone Age Bread
As part of our topic, The Stone Age we made Stone Age Bread! As a class we discussed how bread would have been made during the Stone Age. Then in two teams we followed the recipe and took it in turns to add the ingredients. Then we took our creations to our School Cook Bev, she kindly cooked them for us in her oven during lunchtime. During the afternoon we were able to taste our Stone Age bread!
We had a fascinating lesson today with the Explorer Dome. All the children were engrossed as they learnt about our own solar system, space and constellations.
To commemorate the Remembrance Centenary we each made an individual poppy and wrote a thoughtful comment on the back. These are now hanging in our classroom on our ornamental class tree.
Year 5 have been visiting the library weekly to take out new books and read in a different environment. We have also enjoyed reading and discussing our class book (Kensuke’s Kingdom) during our time in the library.
We thoroughly enjoyed a training session with Clifton Rugby Club. It was great fun and a new experience for lots of the children.
Exploring Negative numbers with Numicon.
We began our lesson on negative numbers by exploring with Numicon. The children tried to find a way of representing positive & negative numbers using the Numicon.
