Healthy Eating experiment

Next week, we are gong to embark on a week of healthy eating. As a class we will endeavour to reduce the amount of sugar and salt in our diets and increase the amount of exercise throughout the school day. We will monitor how it affects our concentration, well-being and heart rate and compare it with our results from the previous week (normal diets and exercise). 

For homework, I would like  you to research recipes, meals and snacks that will help promote a healthier lifestyle. The recipes can be presented any way you wish, on Hwb, collage, handwritten and so on.

We will share them so that we can have support for our challenge next week. 


We should try to avoid foods and drinks like: 

  • chocolate and sweets
  • crisps
  • ice cream
  • Pizza
  • salt 
  • processed foods
  • biscuits
  • sugary drinks
  • chips
  • cakes
  • takeaways
  • nuts


Foods, snacks and drinks we should try to include in our day:

  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • Apples with peanut butter
  • oat bars
  • flapjacks
  • cereal
  • toast
  • Veggie crisps
  • water, milk, fruit juice
  • fresh meat
  • couscous, rice
  • Quorn
  • plant based food
  • Raisins 
  • Rice cakes
  • fish

This week we have been learning about different types of angles and how to measure angles using a protractor. For homework this week I would like you to revise measuring angles by playing the following online games - click on the images below to access the games. 







23rd April 2021

Your homework this week is to bring in something to plant our sunflower seeds in. We will be monitoring their growth to see what conditions they can survive and thrive in. We will be recording and plotting their growth on a line graph to compare results. 

You can bring in anything that will hold compost and that is waterproof. It could be: 

  • Jam jar                                                             
  • A spare flower pot
  • Plastic container/bottle cut in half 
  • An old welly
  • Empty tin can 
  • Anything that can be recycled to hold your sunflower safely and that is waterproof...

Please could you bring in your pot by Monday 26th April.

Magpie Books 

In class this week you have been given books to record any ideas/inspiration for story writing. The purpose is to 'magpie' any ideas when you see/hear them from other stories, TV programmes, peers, images...etc. You can record ideas in any creative way you wish; collage, scrap booking, drawings, notes and so on. 

For homework this week I would like you to decorate your books to make them more personal. This can be done anyway you wish:

  • collage
  • poster
  • drawings

Secondly, I would like you to begin to record some ideas under the heading 'Settings' on the first page. This could be images from a  travel brochure, drawings, names of destinations ... and so on. 

I am looking forward to sharing your books and settings ideas on Wednesday 21st April. 


         Egg Capsule Challenge

As we didn't get around to making our designs for our Egg Capsule Science investigation before Christmas, we are going to build them next week! For homework I would like you to collect any recycling you  have in the house and bring it into school ready for our build on Wednesday 21st April.
