Our Jubilee Three Course Meal
The Year Fives made a delicious 3 course meal this week as part of our DT Come Dine with me topic. We learnt how to cut food safely using the claw and bridge techniques. The children really enjoyed their salads, pizzas and fruit sticks. We even managed to combine our cooking with our Jubilee celebrations. Each group designed a tablecloth to make sure that we all got into the ‘Jubilee spirit’.

Basketball with Jimmy Jumpshot
The children had the opportunity to hone their basketball skills with Jimmy Jumpshot this term. They learned how to pass the ball more effectively, speed dribbling and how to control the ball. Our final tournament was very exciting and we would like to thank Jimmy for his coaching this term.

GLOW day turns to SNOW day!

DT Day

Our DT day was full of excitement. We researched the risks and challenges that astronauts would face on a voyage to Mars and we designed a manned space capsule that had to land safely on Mars. Because no willing astronauts were available, we used an egg. The craft had to land safely without damaging our 'egg-astronaut'.

Science Day

The children completed a range of interesting experiments on our Science Day. We launched a balloon rocket on a string, made very messy non Newtonian Oobleck and took part in many other interesting scientific investigations.
