Today we were blown away by Mr Tyler. We revised forces and continued our learning on Buoyancy. We learned the formula Density= Mass/Volume. We learned that the less volume it takes up the more dense it is and therefore  more likely to sink.

 

Connecting to Digital Technology

Today we connected our personal devices to the school WiFi. We are super excited to be able to use our devices in school. We promise to be sensible!

Battle of Dunkirk

This afternoon we used I pads to research about the battle of Dunkirk as part of our learning on WWII. We used this information to make a cartoon strip of the events that took place at that time.
