In RE, we have been discovering the teachings of Islam. To end our topic, we made Eid cards to develop our understanding of how Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan and fasting.
Year 5 had a fantastic day at Ipswich Museum on Thursday. The children learned about how artefacts help us to learn about the past by handling objects from an Ancient Egyptian tomb. They followed the journey to the afterlife and had the chance to wear stunning masks of the gods. For many the best part of the day was using clay to make shabtis or seeing the Victorian animal displays.
This week we took part in a food sensory workshop run by Caterlink, who cook our school meals. This workshop fitted in perfectly with our ‘Healthy Me’ topic, and we explored different tastes and how they made us feel. We also tried to identify which part of our tongue was sensitive to the four tastes of sweet, sour, bitter and salty. I’m not sure we could all agree, but we had some fun trying!
