Red Nose Day 2019 - Christ Church bake off!

For Class 5's bake off treat we decided to make our own unicorn rice krispie treats. These looked pretty good and tasted even better! We sold out almost as soon as the bake sale began. If you want to see our recipe, we have included it below. You can experiement with different cereals and toppings to make something a little different. Just remember that we are always willing to taste test things for you. ;) 

 

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups Miniature Marshmallows
  • OR Jar of marshmallow fluff
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

 

HOB DIRECTIONS:

  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

    2. Add cereal. Stir until well coated.

    3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.


    MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS:

  2. In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.


    NOTES:

    - For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
    - Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
    - Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container.

What we are doing in Class

 

 We are working really hard to smash our writing targets and are all striving to remember our "Non-negotiables" in our writing and produce "perfect presentation". Children who do their very best presentation and editing with their work all week receive a "Purple Pro" Certificate. 

 We are Loving our new reading VIPERS work and are proud to receive reading  VIPERS stickers when we  impress our teachers with our understanding.  (See English page for what VIPERS stands for.)

In our RE Unit " Special Journeys", we practiced a mindfulness meditation,  to a special place where we might feel calm or relaxed then made charcoal pictures of our imaginary places.

Year 5 class blog
  Class 5 are loving our book "The Mousehole cat" and can't wait for the next installment at the beginning of our English lessons. We are writing  newspaper  reports about the storm at sea and using "VIPERS" (see English page) to understand the complex metaphors in the story! (WOW!)

We are learning about life cycles in science and have been acting out the human life cycle with much hilarity! Next week we will be measuring and graphing the heights of children at different ages throughout the school and planting some sunflowers to study their growth requirements.

In maths we are smashing fractions and can't believe how much cake the teachers seem to eat in the maths problems we're working on!
