Our class assembly

science eggsperiment!

In science we have been looking at teeth! We did an experiment to see which drinks are the worst for our teeth. The shell of the egg is like the enamel on our teeth, we left the eggs in the liquids for 5 days and then made conclusions from the results. 

Pizza cook off

Easter Exhibition

We dressed as heroes to raise money for people effected by the earthquakes in Syria and Turkey.

World Book Day

Pizza tasting

For part of our DT topic we tasted different pizzas and evaluated their taste, appearance, smell, texture, packaging and target audience

During our Roman day we learnt about what the Romans invented that we still use today, we then looked at real Roman artefacts including Roman coins Alison had found with a metal detector! We then had a real Roman maths lesson about Roman numerals and had an afternoon full of DT; making Roman biscuits and painting our Roman vases. We then finished the afternoon with a fantastic Roman feast included fish, olives, grapes, bread, (chocolate) door mice and even red wine (blackcurrant squash)!
