Year 5 cooking

Today Year 5 had their turn at cooking. As Rosh Hashanah is approaching we kept with the theme of apples and decided to cook apple crumble. The class split into three groups of ten children. They used the following ingredients: apples, cinnamon, oats, sugar, margarine and flour. 

First they washed their hands and peeled the apples. Secondly they cut up the apples into small pieces. Next they put the flour and margarine into a bowl and rubbed together to make the crumble. After that they added the sugar. Meanwhile some children put the apples into a dish and sprinkled with cinnamon. Finally they added the crumble mix to the apples and placed into the oven for 20 minutes.

Year 5 couldn't wait to taste and when they did, most had seconds. A lot said they can't wait to cook it at home.

On Monday 26th September twelve children from Year 5 went to the Billesley Tennis Centre for their Playleader trainning.

They learnt how to play and deliver games to the children of King David at break times. It is a real skill to be able to explain and organise children, especially the younger ones. 

The Playleaders will be in groups of three and will have a specific day to playlead. Each group will have one session a week but are welcome to lead on other days if they choose to. 

They all showed great potential and we look forward to having yet another great team of leaders.


WOW!!!! what an amazing week Year 5 have had with the introduction of Mathletics. They have all been working hard to improve their maths skills and their total score as a class is 85,451 points!  This is the highest score that any of our previous classes have managed in one week.

We have set a target of 1,000 points per week to achieve a certificate (which many children have exceeded). They can also go onto 'Live Mathletics' and test their skills against children from King David or from around the world!

Well done Year 5! Keep up the hard work!!
