USA Topic Day
Year 5 have LOVED their USA themed Topic Day today (Friday 7th September 2018).
We researched food in America, and discussed the obesity issues currently in the States. Did you know that out of the population of the USA, at least 15% are obese? NINE states have over 25% of their population who are obese! OVER 25%! We then designed our own healthy fries, made them (ate them) and evaluated them.
We also researched the different states of the U.S., using our knowledge to create educational leaflets.
In the afternoon, Mrs Staley organised some games which we participated in - they were USA themed sports; baseball, American rugby (The Crescent Edition) and basketball. Also, we had two glamorous “Americans” selling popcorn during the games. As a part of our sports, we performed our class cheerleading sequence!
