Healthy Living Week
What a busy week we have had thinking about how to stay healthy! As well as creating some exercise activities for Year 6 to try, we have been making couscous salad; a healthy dish which we could make at home. Beginning with a base of couscous (cooked using vegetable stock to give it more flavour) we were able to choose our own ingredients to add some flavour. About half of the class hadn't tried it before but most of us liked it and would make it again.
200 Year Celebration
We have been celebrating 200 years since education came to the village of Chipstead. Class 5 have been given the Georgian Period to learn about which means we get to find out the origin story; learning about 1818-1837.
On Monday we had a dress up day, coming in to school dressed in Georgian attire. We spent the afternoon learning about the state of education in Britain prior to 1818 before debating whether poor children should have the right to education - a hot topic in 1818!
