Design and Technology - Cooking and nutrition 

As part of our topic, we have been learning about spring rolls - where they originated from and how they can be prepared and cooked. We tasted two different kinds of spring rolls and evaluated them, we looked at the different flavours, textures and ingredients they had and talked about how we could improve them. We then planned our own spring rolls. Next we made them.

Science - Properties of Materials and Changes

 

Year 5 have started their new Science topic.  They have separated mixtures using different equipment. Furthermore, they investigated which solids form a solution when mixed with a liquid.  They found that some solids are soluble whilst others are insoluble.

Through their topic of Changes of State to materials they investigated how materials change when you bake them in the oven.  First they predicted what they thought might happen and came up with a hypothesis in thier groups.  Then they created a mixture for fairy cakes by adding different ingredients and put them in the oven.  Every 5 minutes they took out the fairy cakes and measured the temperature of them - then put them back to bake.  Finally, using their table of results they wrote a conclusion as to what they found out.
