After a long and stinky week, we’ve finally thrown out the food. Here’s how it looked on Friday morning…
The ‘orange’ (or should I say green??)
The white bread only had a smattering of mould.
The cracker was fine.
This was once a breakfast muffin.
The babybel wasn’t so appetising.
The brown bread was rock hard, but not mouldy.
The banana skin had mould growing on it.
The lemon had more than one kind of mould growing on it…
The banana was vile.
The fleshy part of the courgette was beginning to expand.
The whipping cream was lumpy.
The milk had separated into a translucent liquid and white lumps.
The fish cake was almost beyond recognition. There was green mould, red mould and white mould, as well as a furry growth from the inside.
The strawberry was black, and the mould had begun to spread to the carrot. The potato had gone green and hard, with discoloured flesh.
The fruit flies that buzzed around the pineapple were the most annoying thing, but the flesh had gone red with green and white mould.
Back to Springwood’s week…
In Maths, we’ve been continuing our work with divisibility (multiples and factors) and with angles. We’ve used Venn and Carroll diagrams to organise our work, and have investigated the totals of internal angles in a variety of shapes.
Following on from our homework, our Literacy work started off with poetry writing. We thought about the different devices that make our writing better, such as metaphors, personification and alliteration, and practised using these. We then wrote a poem about a specific emotion which will be entered into a competition. Later in the week, we explored the story we’ve been reading from the point of view of another character, and began to write the story from the other animal’s point of view.
Reverend Cooper came in on Tuesday to continue our faith through drama work.
We practised our netball on the common. This week, we continued to look at effective utilisation of the space available.
On Thursday, we had a topic-themed day. Having been introduced to the topic in some reading earlier on in the week, we learned more about the Anglo Saxons. We looked at where the Anglo Saxon period was on a timeline of British History, the tribes that made up the Anglo Saxons, and the ways in which different kingdoms were formed. Later, we investigated some of the Anglo Saxon words that we still use today, and designed our own Anglo Saxon houses.
Following the success of our science experiment, Peppard class came to visit us. We explained what we’d been doing and what we’d learned from our experiment.
Next week, we will be visiting the Ashmolean on Friday to continue our work on the Anglo Saxons. We will be back at school a bit later than usual – between 3 and 3.30 pm.
