This week in maths we are doing some investigations that will show us how to react if we don't get the correct answer first time. Mr Dale says it is teaching us to learn how to fail and pick ourselves up from that failure.
Today we were visited by Gregolf the Viking. He taught us about armour, weapons, clothes, games and stories to do with Vikings. We had a really great day!
On Wednesday in science, we looked at Jupiter and the horrid storms that litter the planet. Paying close attention to the red spot, we recreated some tornadoes/vortex in a bottle using quite a clever technique.
Apologies for lack of posts recently. We have been very busy with our work in class. Here is one of our most recent science experiments. We replicated the surface of Venus by heating up butter and mixing it with flour.
In science this week we investigated why water doesn't come through a hankie when the glass has been turned upside down. Some of us got a bit damp but we had great fun.
In maths yesterday, Red and Yellow group had a go at drawing shapes on isometric paper to help them learn what shapes look like in different orientations. Here are some of our efforts.
Yesterday, in science, we looked at how gravity and magnetic fields can work in balance to create paper clips that hover. We worked out that the gravity and magnetic force needed to be in perfect balance for the paper clips to hover or they would simply fall back down to earth or attach themselves to the paper clips.
First day back after Easter and we had fun playing around with the Pic Collage app. We found some of the pieces of work we were most proud of and took photos of them. We then uploaded them into Pic Collage and created a collage of them!
Our final Literacy topic before Easter saw us read one of the bleakest poems ever. We studied it carefully and decided it contained things that didn't make for the most exciting life. As a result, we rewrote it to contain the parts of life that should be exciting and important. We hope you enjoy!
