This term in Funky Foods the children have been looking at packaging and advertising. They have explored the different types of packing available and the impact this has on the environment and the KS2 children have looked at the tricks the media uses when selling us products.
Alongside this they have looked into where our food comes from and how it is grown. With Year 5 visiting the Bohemia Walled Garden to plant for vegetables and herbs.
Year 1 created some delicious Rainbow Fruit Kebabs and a still lemonade
Today, we had a visit from Chartwells (our catering providers) who put on a workshop ‘The Queen came to Tea’ to educate us on table manners and etiquette. Children learnt the correct and polite way in which to hold their cutlery, sit at a table and eat in a polite manner. We discussed how we leave our cutlery and plates at the end of a meal. The children loved it particularly the cheese sandwich!
On Monday, we visited the Hastings Museum for our stunning starter into out topic for term 4 – The Celts. After the success of the LEGO hub children were super excited to be heading back there. When we arrived we looked at different artifacts from the paleolithic, mesolithic, neolithic, bronze age and iron age. Children were able to see how as time changed so did the tools and resources available. Once we had looked at our artifacts we began our art work which explored patterns from around the museum. We drew our patterns on top of one another to create a better effect when it came to using a kaleidoscope app on an iPad to finish our piece. The children were brilliant, very engaged and excellent behaviour, as usual. Well done Jade class !
3ZJ Have had a brilliant time this term learning computing. On Friday we had our final trip to the Museum, where the children were allowed to pick their own project. This meant children could choose what they made whether it was something with instructions or something from their own imagination. There were some fantastic creations! Children have created lots of different algorithms that allowed their creations to move, change colour, turn direction, pull things or even make sound by recording their own voices.
This week in Geography we have been learning about coasts and how erosion happens. We made cliffs using different biscuits to represent different rocks and buttercream to build up the cliff. We then added different amounts of water to see what would happen and recreate cliff erosion.
