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!
What was your favourite part? Did you learn any new skills?
This week in Geography, Pine class used a digital map service called Digimap to find and locate all the different allotments we have in Chelmsford. Through careful map work and research, we found out that Chelmsford has over 20 allotment sites and nearly 1000 allotment plots available to rent!
Also on this morning, we had the opportunity to explore different fruit and vegetables. The children had to feel and smell a variety of foods to try and work out what different produce they had. We had some excellent guesses and we all encountered some new vegetables we had never seen or heard of before!
Using our food packages, we then tried to locate all the different locations on a world map, using an atlas to help us find countries we didn’t know. Our conclusion was that the food we eat comes from all over the world!
At the start of our final topic in year 5, Allotment, we explored different fruit and vegetables from around the world.
Firstly, we looked at lots of different food packages, which the children brought in from home.
