Science Week

We have had a really exciting week focusing on Science.

We started on Monday with some technology, making cardboard boats, made water resistant with tin foil, competing to hold the most weight.  Dasha, Charlotte, Zara, Melissa, Heather and Ruby crafted the winning boat. It held 1300g, (Ben said, “That’s 1.3kg!”). Well done!

On Wednesday our writing was related to topical science news. We read a few articles and related fact files. We worked on our note-taking skills and next week we will created a sci-fi story of our choosing, linked to our chosen article.

That wasn’t all! Also on Wednesday we visited a planatarium…in our gym hall! It was awesome. We learned lots about stars, which was really useful as we recently began our Space topic with Mrs Horne.

Thursday’s science was preparation for our Friday showcase. We picked our favourite topic from science so far this year, and I’m groups prepared a display to tell everyone about it. We made displays for electricity, rock types, the eye, the ear, chemical reactions, light, shadows and the planets.

 

On Friday we shared our knowledge and learned lots from the p7 displays which were interactive!

We had lots of fun all week!
