Foodie facts

         Children who have breakfast get higher scores in tests than ones who don’t. Our brains are made from 80% fat and our bodies are made from 80% water! I think my diet is balanced because I eat my 5 a day, meat eggs and if I’m good I get a little bit of sweets and chocolate.

My comment about my report

I would give myself 5out of five for this report because I have put a lot of effort into it and I have tried hard.

Easter Science Reversible Changes

Today Year 5 were enjoying recapping on Changing States in Science!  We changed the chocolate from a solid into a liquid in the microwave.  Then we mixed in some delicious 100% wholegrain, low salt and sugar Shredded Wheat which we had broken up to look like twigs.  After everyone mixing it up we made it into nests before the reversible change happened and the chocolate returned to being a solid, although in a different shape!

We added some eggs to symbolise new life and a chick too!  We had already made and decorated some Easter basket ready to add the nests to.  We even had enough to make some for the people who were away and Mrs Rogers, as well as Mrs Evans and Mrs Davies in the office!

Club news – Tuesday, 18 November

Nature club were all out and about this week with people putting up the bird seed feeds we made last week and creating clay masks.

If you want to know how to make the bird seed feeders ask a club member!  They are really easy to make and the birds were watching as we were hanging them up!!

The clay masks were really good fun to make and used natural items that were found around about which were pressed into the clay on the tree trunk.

 

I am sure that the birds will all enjoy their winter snacks!
