Highlights from Term 2

Mexican cooking

On Wednesday 12th September, Oak Class participated in a Great Mexican Bake Off event. 

We all had a fantastic morning and baked our own 'black bean and cheese empanadas'.

A timeline of Mexican history

We created our own timeline of Mexican history using canvas and water colours. Here's a snapshot of a few of our creations. Do pop into our classroom to see the completed timeline.

 

year 5 and 6 have many challenges to face in learning this year. However, Being so close to the Ashdown forest makes us think of A.A Milne's words of wisdom.

Our motto(1)

Science

Oak Class are learning about the circulatory system in Science in term 1.  In the spirit of hands on science investigations, Oak class have  dissected a sheep's heart to explore it's main features.

The class did fantastically well and discovered that animal hearts smell! 

In week two we looked at the main components of blood and created our own blood potions to help us remember each component.

End of term bake-off

To help write our stories 'The Day of the Dead', Oak Class enjoyed immersing ourselves in some cooking. We all made 'Pan de muerto (Day of the Dead bread), an orange infused bread commonly eaten during the festival. We found that the addition of orange in the mixture created a lasting aroma that inspired us when we wrote our Day of the Dead stories.

Term 2

This term Oak Class's learning has been split between World War One rememberance and then chocolate.

As it was one hundred years since the end of the First World War we spent time reflecting on this important histrocial event. 

We began by constructing our own wart time street and learned about a street called 'Chapel Streetl' known as the bravest little street in England. We also laid a wreath in our local church and wrote poems reflecting on our learning. 

 

 

Chocolate

Oak Class began this topic of learning by a trip to a local chocolate maker in Tunbridge Wells. As you can imagine the class thoroughly enjoyed their morning. where they got to design, make and of course eat their own delicious chocolate.
