We had a wonderful trip to Lime Wood on Tuesday. Luke Holder (the Executive Chef) gave a lot of his time and attention to the children throughout the morning- he was lovely with them. We saw the greenhouses, The Smokery and The Cookery school. The children worked as a production line to make arancini, which they also got to try.
We have also been investigating ible/able suffixes, rounding in maths to 1,000,000 and creating a physical geography map of South America. The children are also trying to use the oil pastel techniques they have learnt to create a brand new tropical rainforest plant.
In Science today, we have been investigating reflection and have created periscopes to aid us in our understanding. The children have enjoyed using and experimenting with torches and mirrors and trying to make their beams of light reflect in different places around the room.
Lots of fun was had first thing as we joined Joe Wicks in a live BBC dance to raise support and awareness of Children In Need today.
Have a lovely weekend,
Year 5 team.
