Olive Oil Bread Challenge

Here is a Real Life Maths challenge. If we have at least 10 correct responses before Monday 7th November, I will build in some time to make the bread for real before Christmas.

Ingredients to make 1 loaf (serves 6)

  • 15g fresh yeast
  • 500g strong white bread flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

We will need to make enough for all of the children plus an extra loaf for the staff to try as well. What are the total quantities of ingredients that we will need? How much is it going to cost?

Topic Launch

On Friday morning, we began our new topic about Ancient Greece by competing in some challenges  based around Greek gods and goddesses. I’ve now checked your answers and Apollo group were the winners of both morning challenges!  In the afternoon launch, we enjoyed working with our adults (and using their phones!) to try to find out more about monsters in Greek mythology. The afternoon winners were….. Apollo group again! What a group! Our commission this term is to create our own oral myths and we will share them at the end of term.

To help us develop the plots for the myths, your next challenge is to begin researching heroes in Greek mythology. Post your findings here and receive a stamp on the blog log 🙂

Year 6 get creative!!

We’ve had a very creative time this week in Year 6: we have been developing our sketching skills by trying to represent the Parthenon; using wax crayons to do some scratch art based on Ancient Greek images; sketching mythical beasts and using Thinking Skills to create our own versions. Finally, we finished the week by designing and making our own Ancient Greek style vases. Have a look at a few of the photos of us using the clay then let us know what your highlights of the week have been…

Another Week Gone…

This week we have begun writing our newspapers in Literacy and did our first Priory’s All Write. We also wrote different styles of poem for the Out of this World Competition. We have been learning lots of Geographical language for our topic work and we went on our visit to Weston Park Museum.

What did we do on the trip? Do you remember anything about Athena and any  facts that Anita told us?
Science: with Mrs Dorrington we classified plants. Can you remember what the sorts of plants she brought in were?
