Year 5 - Sycamore

Bread making with Warburton's.

 

Sycamore class were really excited to learn all about baking bread when we were joined this week by Warburton's bread company.  We learned all about food hygiene and cleanliness before we got stuck in to preparing the yeast.  We worked in groups to mix the ingredients to make a bread dough and we had to work hard to knead it into shape.  We made some really interesting looking bread and with the help of Mrs King in the kitchen, we baked some really tasty bread.  It was a great morning of learning, making and eating!  A big thank you to Warburton's for coming in to work with us.

Congratulations to the girls in Sycamore and Chestnut classes who raised so much money today for Macmillan.  The proceeds from their bake sale and raffle totalled over £100 so well done to them.

 

Five March to the Moors at Merrivale

This week, Sycamore class spent the day at Merrivale on Dartmoor looking at a Bronze Age site and carrying out some geography fieldwork. They then wrote a diary entry about their day.  This is what they had to say:

Dear diary

Today was a great day. It was fun-filled and jam packed with adventures and facts.

In school, we were all excited about looking at fascinating artefacts left by the stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. Arriving on the bus, we happily checked our clipboards. First, we measured roundhouses. We used trundle wheels to measure the circumference and metre sticks for the diameter.

(Kingsley B)

 

Even though I felt really travel sick, I was excited about the day.

Mr Johnstone showed us a stone row which me and Maddie measured with the trundle wheel. It was 300 metres long. The stone row was two rows of stones stood up opposite each other.

(Maddison D-H)

After that, we sat down and took out some maps. We did six figure grid referencing. Mr Johnstone gave us a romer and told us to find the different tors.

Then we went back on the bus and went to the visitors centre. When we went in, there was a dressing up box, make you own round house and swords, axes, bracelets and brooches.

How could today get any better?

(Cole D)

Visit from local artist Brian Pollard

 

Children in year 5 had a great afternoon on Monday when we were joined by local artist Brian Pollard.  The children were really excited to be in the presence of a real artist and they were inspired by his ideas and style of painting.  Brian Pollard told the children how they could make their paintings simple and 'naïve' by thinking about the shape of things to paint in terms of number shapes, letter shapes and not worrying too much about the detail.   The children took real care with their work and enjoying seeing their scenes take shape.  A big thank you to Brian Pollard for giving up his time to visit us.
