YEAR 5 STEM WEEK
Year 5 had a STEM week focussed on farming. The aim of the week was to design a farm shop, producing healthy local food for schools. They learnt all about plant life cycles, asexual and sexual plant reproduction and when seeds should be planted and harvested. They watched cress seeds grow, planted onion seeds and grew spring onions from cuttings. They recorded this in tables and line graphs. Children then used fresh vegetables to cook frittatas and learnt safe hygiene and cooking skills as part of the process. Each group created their own packaging, adverts and website.
