Tesco Farm to Fork

 

 

On Tuesday 7th February, Mr Craig’s Year 5 class was invited to participate in Tesco’s Farm to Fork programme. When we arrived in Tesco we met Adam and Joan who gave us a lovely snack with lots of delicious fruit and some bread too. Adam then told us all about the eat well plate and why a BALANCED diet is so important for us.
We then had a quiz guessing how many sugar cubes were in some of our favourite drinks. Coca Cola had the most with 14 sugar cubes.  Children our age are only meant to have the equivalent of 6 sugar cubes a day!

Next Adam and Joan took us to the fruit and vegetable section where we had a treasure hunt to find the fruits and vegetables of different colours as well as finding out where our fruit and vegetables have come from.

Next they took us to the cereal section and challenged us to think which cereal contained the most sugar. They showed us to find out how much sugar a product contained. Frosties and Coco Pops were one with the most amount of sugar with Weetabix having the least amount.

Finally, as we listened so well Adam and Joan took us into the bakery where they allowed us to make doughnuts! They were delicious! Thank you Tesco.

No Pens Day

 

 

On Friday 6th January we had a 'No Pens Friday'. During the day we weren't allowed to use pens to do our work. Instead we had to use our talking and listening skills to solve problems in Numeracy and work in groups to create role plays in literacy.

As a conclusion to our Australia topic we had an Australia Day celebration on Friday. We had the opportunity to try some traditional Australian Art, Sports, sample food and have a go with a boomerang. If only it was Australia Day every day!

Hounds For Heroes

 

 

On Friday 19th November we were visited by Allen Parton and his special friend E.J. during assembly. Allen was injured during the Gulf War and after waking up five months after the accident he found completing every day tasks difficult. That is when he was given his assistance dog. His dog is able to use cash machines, use traffic lights and even roll Allen into the recovery position if he collapses. He even showed us the special medal his old dog won after saving his life after being knocked down.

Move over Lord Sugar!
 

Today in class we were given the challenge to design a new toy for the the Christmas toy Market. We had to work in small groups to think of the different types of toys children like to play with. We then had to work together to design a toy that would appeal to other children. Come back soon to see some of our persuasive advertisements encouraging people to buy them.
