In class this week, we have been learning about how to stay safe in the kitchen as well as how to use different skills in the kitchen to prepare a healthy meal. We are going to apply the skills we have learned on Friday to make the meal we have designed.Mr Joyce will then pick the team that worked the best to take part in a ready steady cook competition.

We made our dishes that we designed. We have to use lots of skills and techniques to prepare our food for the judges! We had to first learn about the rules of cooking, wash our hands and prepare our cooking stations. We then learned how to boil water, how to chop food correctly using a bear claw technique and we then mixed and served a plate of tasty food!

The chefs presenting their food to the judges. May we say, all the food we tasted was delicious!

In RE this week, we have been learning about how Christians show commitment to God, as well as the ten commandments. We had a class discussion about different scenarios/ situations and thought carefully about what we would do and what a Christian might do in these given scenarios.

During Geography, we have been learning about longitude and latitude. We studied the Earth and identified the Prime Meridian and the equator and discussed where countries were in relation to these. We then learned about their resulting weather systems and water cycle based on their geographical location. We used our knowledge of lines of latitude and longitude as well as our map skills to design a treasure hunt for the other Y5 class. Both classes then had to use the compass coordinates to find the clues and eventually the final prize!

In Science we have been investigating air resistance and gravity. We created our own scientific investigation using paper helicopters. We decided to add paper clips or cut the wings of the helicopter short to see what effect this had on the rate at which the helicopter would fall.

During Science Week, we learned about the different forces. We became experts in a force and had to give a presentation to the rest of the class. We shared the knowledge, facts and explained the scientific idea using a force diagram.

This term, we had a debate about whether animals such as elephants should be kept in zoos and sanctuaries. As a class, we used our speaking and listening skills to share the ideas we created and researched to have a debate.
