A Week in Year 5

Banana Debate

In small groups we had to research into  the pros and cons of importing bananas from Costa Rica. The factors we had to consider were: air pollution caused, how much money is costs and the hygienic nature of how the bananas are transported. We then had to debate and present our cases as to whether we should import them from Costa Rica.

Scratch Quiz

Within our Computing lessons we have started created a quiz using Scratch. This is based on our topic, Allotments, and involves quizzing people on their knowledge of plants. We have been learning about the use of the Ask code block and using the answer variable to check if what the user has entered is the same as the actual answer. Then we have used the IF ELSE block to determine which outcome to display.
