Scone making, October 2019
Year 5 made scones as part of their DT project. The children carried out market research across the school, asking children what ingredients they would add to their scone. From this the children planned their own scone using a range of ingredients including raisins, cinnamon, cheese, courgette and chocolate chip. There were some interesting and imaginative combinations. Working in groups, the children made their scones and then equally divided the mixture to then add their own ingredients. At the end of the day the children got to enjoy their bakes and there was lovely aroma around the school. I think we might have found some future ‘Bake Off’ winners!
Visit from the UK Parliament, October 2019
Year 5 were visited by a representative from the UK Parliament, Kerrie Carpenter, who spoke to the children about how the Government is formed and how the House of Commons and House of Lords operates. It was a great morning and the children came away wanting to learn more!
Year 5 visit The Beeches for a well-being morning, October 2019
Year 5 children visited The Beeches (a care home in Leatherhead) to help take part in a well-being morning. The children had a fantastic morning helping to make carrot cake! Lucy in Eagle class said, “It was a great morning. I really enjoyed helping to make the cakes and they were really yummy.”
