Year 5 have had a very exciting week with the ‘Explore Learning’ team designing their own Italian menu for Nonna’s restaurant. The children used a range of maths skills to collect and record data for their menu including making tally charts. After researching children’s preferred menu options, children applied their knowledge of fractions to calculate the ingredients needed for each meal. Following this, the children converted proportions of ingredients from fractions into decimals and percentages.
Have a look at our scrumptious menus below!
‘This was the best trip we have ever been on!’ This was a common comment from the children following our fantastic trip to West Midlands Safari Park. Lions, white tigers, painted dogs, elephants and giraffes were just some of the incredible animals we saw during our trip. Year 5 were treated to a breath-taking ride through the safari park and afterwards ventured through exhibitions showing creepy crawlies, penguins, parrot lorikeets and reptiles. The children have since used their new knowledge to write non-chronological reports!
P.S. We were all exhausted after such a super trip!
This week the children have been making their own Deadly 60 encyclopaedia, they have researched their animal of choice and are in the final stages of producing a non-chronological report. Once published, the reports will be put together to create our very own animalpedia.
The children have loved learning about the animals and we are sure they will have lots of facts to share with you.
