Pets At Home visit, by Mr Helsby
Date: 29th Apr 2015 @ 8:20pm
Today Sara from Pets At Home visited our school to tell us all about the life and habitat of snakes! She brought in a Corn Snake and a Python and told us that whilst Corn Snakes live in corn fields, Pythons like to live in long grass. They both enjoy a frozzen mouse for dinner too! Did you know that Corn Snakes can grow as tall as Mr. Helsby? We all were very excited to stroke and hold the snakes. We expected them to be slimey but actually they felt like leather.
Designing Fire engines, by Miss Hope
Date: 29th Apr 2015 @ 8:08pm
To end our Great Fire of London topic we designed our own fire engines. We learnt how to make a chassis, how to insert axles and how to put wheels on the axles. We decorated our engines with ladders, hoses and sirens. In our Literacy work we wrote instructions for making a fire engine, so if you'd like to make a fire engine like ours ask one of 2H for the instructions.
Our visit to the Bakery, by Miss Hope
Date: 29th Apr 2015 @ 7:20pm
To set off our topic about the Great Fire of London we visited Blackburns bakery in Cambridge Rd.
We were able to buy some cakes from the Bakery and then enjoyed Afternoon tea back at school that afternoon.
We then set up a Pudding Lane Bakery role play area in our classroom. Playing in the bakery is a favourite activity during Golden Time. Buying and selling playdough cakes has given us practice with adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers.
Here are some photographs of our visit to Cambridge Rd.

The fun never stops in Year 5! Yesterday the Junior Chefs' Academy came to our school and we learnt all about Greek cuisine. We were all given our very own chef's hat and apron and we were lead by Chef in making Souvlaki which is a Greek kebab. We were told all about how the Greek diet is based on simple foods such as fruits and vegatables such as grapes, tomatoes and peppers. We were shown how to zest a lemon, chop vegetables and also how to add seasoning and herbs. We then had to carefully place all of our ingredients onto the kebab skewers so that we could eat them later. They looked delicious!
