Well done to Logan in 5KB for writing a fantastic explanation text. Logan created his own pet for the Na’vi on Pandora, as part of an English project. His writing was full of useful tips and advice for taking good care of the ‘Snakeshee’.  Super work, Logan 5 Dojos 🙂

Today, Year 5’s e-safety lesson focused on the editing and airbrushing practice used in advertising and the media. All the children were very interested to see the process used by McDonald’s to achieve the ‘perfect’ looking burger. It was especially illuminating to see how people’s images were changed and we debated the usefulness of this practice and how it could lead to unrealistic ideas about body image. See the link below for the video we watched.

Yesterday, Year 5 completed their design and technology project with the creation of their own hot chocolate drinks. Over the past few weeks, they have carefully considered their recipes, designed labels and then made their drinks. The drinks needed to balance health with taste and appeal to their target audience. We then got to taste and evaluate the finished product with some interesting results!

To Infinity & Beyond!05-03-2018 | 16:49:33 | 3 Comments

Today Year 5 were treated to a visit from Scott Walker @ Keele University who came to deliver his lecture “To infinity & beyond”. Scott gave us real insight into the science behind space missions and showed us some amazing experiments that helped us to better understand what fuels rockets and Newton’s laws of motion. We were particularly interested in how astronauts go to the toilet while in space. Many thanks to Scott and the children who asked some very important questions.
