This week, as part of Year 5’s topic, the children have been cooking and eating Mexican food. The children prepared quesadillas by combining 1 spring onion, 1 red pepper, 200g grated cheddar cheese, 4 soft tortilla wraps and a bunch of coriander. They then went on to sprinkling this mixture between two layers of tortillas before frying them on both sides. The children could pick an accompanying side of guacamole or salsa.

“I only liked the Quesadillas with plain cheese as I think the coriander, pepper and spring onions got in the way. I liked the salsa but I didn’t like the guacamole.” Grace

Drama for Writing

This week the children have been following the story of ‘The Boat’. The children then needed to innovate their own story one year later based on the book.

“I really loved the drama for writing because I love writing my own stories and reading them. I’m happy we had the opportunity to write our own version one year later.” Athena

“I enjoyed drama for writing because we got to make our own story one year later. I made mine tense, a bit scary and mysterious.” Grace

Assessments

This week the children have completed two maths, a reading and a grammar assessment paper. The children had a range of views on them! Some thought they were really fun, others didn’t enjoy them quite so much.

“I liked the reading assessment because I like reading a paper and then finding the answers.” Mason

“I really enjoyed the Maths assessment because I love maths. It challenged me.” Joshua

“I think I did well on the reading assessment because one of the questions was based on planets and I know a lot of information about planets.” Grace
