Spectrum of light

The year 5 children continued their science topic of light, earth and space today by using spectroscopes to study the spectrum of light. They worked together to use various light sources that showed them the range of colours included in a ray of light. Next week, The class will measure the light in the classroom and outside.

Choosing ice cream ingredients

The children in year 5 continued their design and technology project today, choosing the ingredients for their ice cream creation. They started by studying several Ice cream recipes and chose the ingredients they liked the best. The children then had to compare prices of their products from a range of supermarkets to see where they could source each ingredient from.

Inventing an ice cream dessert

Today year 5 started their D&T project – designing and inventing a brand new ice cream dessert. They will be working in teams to produce a mouth-watering dish to tempt our ‘Come dine with me’ judges on Friday!

This morning, the children were given a table full of ingredients to taste and they had to score them in terms of flavour, taste and texture. They worked really well in their teams and are looking forward to planning their recipe tomorrow.
