This week was biscuit week in Ash Class! We all really enjoyed Tuesday's DT project. The day started with tasting some different biscuits and evaluating them. The children thought about appearance, texture and taste and used this to help decide what to include in their own biscuits. They they were able to adapt a recipe and followed these to mix up the ingredients and create their biscuits. An afternoon of cooking and then the biscuits were baked! The classroom smelt like a lovely bakery...
Another highlight for me this week was reading the children's finished writing in English. They have been writing their own version of the book 'Leon and the Place Between'. The writing was so descriptive and imaginative - I really enjoyed reading their work. We have been learning about decimals in Maths this week and revisited what a tenth is and the different ways we can represent it (as a fraction, decimal, on a place value chart or on a number line). We also looked again at how to divide a number by 10 using a place value chart. In geography, we explored how climate change is going to have an impact on migration. We learnt about how rising sea levels and drought (two of the major impacts of climate change) will force people to leave their homes and they will become 'climate refugees'. Science was a lovely lesson learning about different astronomers. We read about astronomers through time including the Ancient Mayans, Copernicus, Katherine Johnson and Jocelyn Bell Burnell. In PE, we had a bench ball tournament for our indoors lesson and then a handball tournament for our outdoor SAINTS lesson.

Although quite short, we've packed a lot into this term! A trip to Tiverton museum, the zoo trip, baking biscuits, learning Ukrainian dancing, a lot of Art and so much more. I hope everyone has a lovely Easter holiday and I look forward to seeing you in the summer term!
