Our second week of the term and we continue to be lucky with the weather which means we can be outside still and make use of the field for break times and PE lessons.

This week in science, the year 5's looked at the effect of heat on dough and changing the quantities of the ingredients to see the effect when making biscuit ingredients. We mixed the ingredients for bread and kept watch as the dough 'proved' during the lesson. We also made chocolate crunch biscuits but changed the quantities to observe the effect on the finished biscuits. The resulting variety of biscuits were 'interesting' to say the least! Many thanks to Mrs Warner for supplying our raw materials and the chocolate crunch recipe.

In maths, we started the week learning about Roman numerals and within a couple of lessons we were able to count up to 1000. The children can now tell you the year they were born using Roman numerals.

We continued reading our class text, The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess and in our literacy lessons we were considering the use of rhetorical questions and different techniques authors can use to build suspense. We then used these to write about being awoken by strange and mysterious noises in the night!

The children have been researching the life of Cleopatra in readiness for starting to populate the wiki we will be producing as part of our computing unit. We have also been designing and making our Scarab beetles after reading the Egyptian story, 'The Scarab's Secret', and finding out about Khepri's role in pushing the sun up into the sky according to the Egyptians religious beliefs.

Mr Bolton will be working with us this Wednesday on an art project for the school so we are really looking forward to his visit.

Have a great extended weekend

In the afternoon, our buddies taught us how to cross our pretend road and we talked...
