As we are studying Japan in our Summer Term topic we decided to take the children in year 5 to Wagamamas. The children got to make their own stir fry using: vegetables, noodles and soy sauce. They got to also juice fruit to make their own juice as well as learn some new facts about Japan. Year 5 also competed against each other by using chopsticks to move an edamame bean from one bowl to the next. The children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and met the head chef and his team.
Pedalling maths and healthy hearts workshop- 20.11.18
Cycling Generation came back to school to work with our class. Richard demonstrated how to do 'pedalling maths'. He brought in a turbo trainer which allowed the children to pedal as fast and as far as they could. The boys went head to head with the girls to see who could get the furthest distance. We then found the difference between each others distances as well as the total metres travelled. The boys won the overall battle of distance against the girls- even with Miss Hillary's help. Well done boys!
After 'pedalling maths', Richard demonstrated how we can test our heart rate when we are resting and after exercising. We found out that exercise helps our heart stay healthy. We really enjoyed this experience and can not wait to get back on the bikes with Richard next year!
Cycling Generation 08.10.18- 10.10.18
The cycling generation are working with our class to help us gain skills in order for us to safely ride our bikes! We have thoroughly enjoyed our first 2 days. The first day we learned how to do complete an 'M Check' before we use our bikes as well as how to set off and stop safely. The following days we split into two groups and set off on our bike journeys with our instructors.
English Flotsam Fun
Our topic title for this half term is ‘Blue Planet’. To link this with our English we are going to be reading the book “Flotsam” by David Wiesner. Today, the children searched the trays for flotsam (washed up items) they had to predict which tray belonged to some of our characters using the items to justify their reasons.
