Cooking at the Fire Pit

Our Outdoor Learning week saw year 5 cook damper dough over the fire pit. It was an exciting lesson in which the children learnt about irreversible changes. We made plenty of dough and got to eat it with some very tasty jam.

WW2 - The Homefront Bus and Soup Making

This term, we had a visit from The Homefront Bus who came in to teach us all about the finer details of the war. The Homefront Bus was a great success and children enjoyed the simulation of an air raid. They also took part in a rationing workshop and were able to taste a range of WW2 sweets.

VE Day

This term marks the end of our WW2 topic in History and on the 26th January, we celebrated Victory in Europe with our party. Here we ate some famous foods from the time- spam and fish paste sandwiches, fig rolls and jam tarts to name a few. Children enjoyed taking part in the aeroplane competition and learning the dance to the Lambeth Walk.

Science

In Science this term, we have been investigating forces and children’s minds have been blown away with forces such as air and water resistance and gravity.

We are very excited to be heading to Legoland on a school trip to consolidate all that we have learnt so far about gravity and friction.
