What we've been doing
A few examples of homework completed by some of the children in their own time. Well done for attempting the extension work on writing a poem.
In Outdoor Learning, Mr Parker taught us how to use PE equipment to relpicate electrical circuits. Can you guess what equipment represents the components?
Forensic Science Workshop
We enjoyed the Forensic Science Workshop. We loved learning about DNA, photo fit identification, and examining samples with magnifying glasses.
Red Nose Day Winning Joke
We had an amazing time making Italian style pizzas. We made the pizza sauce, pizza dough and cooked them in a Ooni Pizza oven.
Another Pizza The Action!
We’ve only gone and done it again. But this time we’ve gone bigger and better. We started the morning off with making our own pizza sauce using the following ingredients: tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, garlic and olive oil. After cooking the sauce, we moved on to making pizza dough using strong flour, yeast and water. The final and best part of the morning was making our own pizzas with Mr Whitton’s Ooni pizza oven. The pizzas were delicious.
This half term we have been lucky to go off site for our outdoor learning sessions. We made bird feed using several ingredients including gelatine, water and various types of seeds.
Our Topic this half term is Ancient Egyptians. We just had to wrap Mathew in toilet rolls so we could experience what it was like for the Egyptians to mummify their pharoes. Do not worry though, we didn't pluck the brains out through the nostrils using the special hook.
As Asia is our class continent, we just had to make chapatis. Again, no packet mix - made from scratch.
After making and cooking the chapatis, children sampled a little taste of chicken tikka masala with their home made chapatis. They also tasted the popular crispy Indian bread - the poppadom.
We made pizza dough and part-baked them in school (no packet mix in sight).
Our class project is bread.
With our continent being Asia, we have studied several areas of China, India and Japan. The photos show children developing their origami style skills by making miniature Japanese dolls.
