'Come Dine with Me' - Week 1
Welcome to Year 6 'Come Dine with Me'.
This week pupils made their starter which had to include pepper. We had peppers stuffed with mozzarella and pepperoni and a roasted red pepper salsa.
The children then scored the meals on appearance, taste and the use of the key ingredient.
STEM Lego Building
Year 5 and Year 6 took part in a STEM Lego building activity. They had to design and build a Lego house within a certain budget. This tricky task challenged the children to price up the cost of each Lego piece needed and to create a house that matched their designs perfectly. The children thoroughly enjoyed working in small groups and spending the morning in the hall working through the task at hand.
Year 6 visited Maidstone Museum to further their learning of World War 2.
They explored the museum learning about how Maidstone was impacted during WW2 and the worst day of bombing which they called 'Black Friday'.
Year 6 also found out where the West Kent Battalions were deployed to throughout the war. They took part in an 'Evacuee and Homefront workshop' and then had some time to explore the rest of the museum.
The children were very well behaved and it was great to see them applying what they had already learnt in school during the workshop. Well done year 6.
