5S

Welcome to 5S!

We are taught by Miss Swain.

 

Come and look at all the wonderful things that we have been learning in class this year!

In Geography, our topic this term is What is it like to live in Guatemala? Today we welcomed Dave and his Rainforest Roadshow to Newhall Juniors for our Sensational Starter. We had an amazing day: we had a talk about the rainforest; held insects from the rainforest; made tribal necklaces and completed observational drawings of real insects.

In Science, we have been describing the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. To do this we have been using our research to present a wildlife programme, which compares the life cycles of two different animals.

In History and English, we have been learning lots of interesting facts about Henry VII and Richard III. We have then been working on presenting them in different ways.

As part of our History topic, What happened at the Battle of Bosworth?, we took a trip to Bosworth Battlefield. We really enjoyed the day as we got to look around the exhibition centre, took a guided walk following the footsteps of Richard III and enjoyed a workshop about weapons and armour.

We really enjoyed making Guacamole in class together this term. Why not try following the recipe and making it at home?

 

How to make Ancient Mayan Guacamole

 

Did you know that avocados, now available all over the world, were once a treasured crop of the ancient Maya?  Even today a person from Antigua Guatemala is often called a panza verde, or green belly.  To make this sumptuous appetiser, simply follow these instructions and transport your taste buds back in time!

 

Ingredients:

1 large avocado (the bigger the better)

1 lime

1 small red onion

A good pinch of coriander

1 fresh tomato (preferably plum)

A pinch of salt and pepper

A pinch of chilli powder

2 tsp olive/sunflower oil

 

Instructions:

  1. First, peel and remove the stone from the avocado before mashing it roughly with a fork.
  2. Next, slice the tomato, onion and coriander as finely as you can (smaller pieces will create a smoother texture).
  3. After that, slice open the lime and squeeze the juice over the avocado
  4. Then gradually blend the remaining ingredients (except the chilli powder) using a spoon and combine the flavours together. 
  5. Now sprinkle the chilli powder over the top of your guacamole according to your personal taste.
  6. Finally, serve immediately with crunchy tortilla chips and become a panza verde!

 

Important tip

To check that your avocado is ripe, peel back the small stem or cap at the top. If it comes away easily and you find green underneath, you've got a good avocado that's ripe and ready to eat.
