Heathrow Primary School

Year 5

In the Spring term topic of design and technology, we focused out attention on cooking and nutrition. During healthy living week, we had a chance to create and enjoy healthy vegetable and chicken kebabs. Further in the term, children were able to understand the importance of eating healthy and the benefit it has. We made links to our history topic by looking at Greek salads. It was a good opportunity to help the children understand seasonality and know where and how a variety of ingredients are grown/reared caught and processed.

Autumn 1

In DT this term, children learned about the movement of different mechanisms such as a cam and follower. Children discussed how mechanisms can be used in everyday life. Following this, children designed their own cam model in preparation for building their own model.
