Hylands taster day!

Today children visited Hylands to get a taste of what life is like when you go to high school! We all participated in exciting activities such as using microscopes in Science, cooking a pasta salad and building models with playdough in Geography.

Superb Salads

Linking to our topic (Allotments), Year 5 have been making salads! This involved roasting potatoes, grating cheese, washing vegetables and cooking couscous! We all decided our salads were delicious!

Year 5/6 Themed Week!

Whilst some of the children have been at Grangewaters, the rest of us have been having a themed week! We learnt about WWI and participated in different activities! We set up each class as a platoon with a Lieutenant and 3 Sergeants. Some of the activities included code breaking, making silent movies and trench warfare!

Macbook skills!

Today we were learning how to use spreadsheets to create tables and charts! We also learnt about different formulas which allowed us to to do Maths!

In class we discussed how this could be useful for real life. Can you think of any ideas how?

Year 5’s Medieval Banquet

Throughout this half term, our topic has been based on England in the Middle ages. As part of a ‘Design and Technology day’ we all tried following a medieval recipe (an unusual type of ginger bread) and then transformed our classrooms into banquet halls ready for the other Year 5 class to dine in (all accessories designed and created by the children!).
