Term 6

Design and Technology: Healthy Couscous

As part of this topic, Year 5 pupils learnt about seasonality and what is meant by the term seasonal foods.  In addition, they learnt about where different foods come from around the world and how importing fruit and vegetables can have negative effects on the environment. 


They also learnt about health and safety in the kitchen, as well as, simple hygiene measures; such as: washing hands and tying hair back.  Furthermore, they used the Eatwell plate to learn about different food groups and how to plan a healthy balanced diet.


Obviously, they had to use cooking preparation techniques such as chopping to prepare their own healthy vegetarian couscous salad from ingredients.  After tasting their couscous salad, pupils completed their evaluation of their salad.


Finally, pupils designed their own appropriate packaging for their salad, including thinking of a name for it and adding the ingredients list!

Ukulele Assembly

We were very proud to share with our parents the songs that we had been learning with DJ this year. We have really enjoyed learning a new instrument and making music together!
