Activity ideas for a visiting Year 5 class?

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by misfit, Jun 24, 2011.

  1. <font size="2">We have a year 5 class coming in for an 'experience day' the week after next and our department have been asked to run a session with them lasting a for a double lesson (1hr and 40 minutes). We will be splitting them into two groups of 16. Any ideas for a FPT or other activity that they would enjoy and has a real WOW factor? There's a bit of competition going on about this between departments. </font><font size="2">Money shouldn't be too much of an issue as long as it's not extortionate. I'm thinking of doing something around batch production and a production line. Preferably nothing to do with any form of keytag - that's been so done to death over the last few years!</font><font size="2"> Any ideas?? </font>
  2. How about something along the lines of the mini-light/torch that Rapid do? I've done this with cubs (8-10 year olds) and they loved it!
  3. I have just done Baked Alaska with a year 6 class. We did that as a sort of assesmbly line.
    1 table made the whisked sponge
    1 table prepared tubes of icecream
    1 table prepared the fruit
    1 table prepared the meringue
    1 table for assembly
    Cook for 5-8 minutes
    Serve and eat YUM!
    Kids could not believe we could cook meringue with icecream and it stay cold. It was a wow lesson!
