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.
What was your favourite part of the day?
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?
In Science, we explored mechanisms. To help us understand how levers affect forces we all created our own lollipop stick catapult! Can you explain how what affect a mechanism has on a force?
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?
This half term we have started playing hockey with Miss Lindsay!
In Computing, we were learning ICT skills to create fantastic presentations based on our topic! We then used our best speaking voices to present them to Aspen class!
