Year 5 End of Topic Visit to the Lallemand Yeast Factory
On Tuesday 28th February Year 5 donned their coats, grabbed their snack and set off down the hill to the Dock Road roundabout, where they visited one of the largest yeast factories in the UK; Lallemand Plc.
They spent an extremely informative couple of hours watching information films, asking questions of the plant manager, Dr Ricard Roig and taking copious notes.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip into the world of yeast.
Later that same day we conducted 2 experiments on the yeast we had been given and we have also made some lovely bread.
Year 5 Science Transition Morning - Thursday 26th January 2017
Year 5 enjoyed an amazing Science Morning at Felixstowe Academy. We learned about finger printing, chromatography and how to use a Bunsen burner safely. The children used the Bunsen burners to test a variety of metals to discover which suspect had stolen Mr Jeffreys' watch.
Year 5 Crime Scene Investigation
On the first day back after Xmas, Year 5 came in to discover that a disturbance had occurred in their classroom and they were asked by the police to find and collect evidence to help their investigation. The children had great fun putting on aprons, gloves and safety goggles and using tweezers to collect, photograph and bag up the evidence.
