Room 5 have been exploring Space throughout term 1.
We really wanted to learn about rockets and how they took off. We decided to do a science experiment with alka seltzer, plastic film containers and some water.The rockets workedvery very well and flew like a real spaceship!
We have written instructions for whoever would like to try it out!
Room 5 carried out a science investigation into what might affect the size of a crater when a meteorite hits a planet.They investigated a number of variables including the size, shape and weight of the meteorite and the surface landing.They presented their results to the class and found that:
– the heavier the meteorite, the bigger the crater produced
– the bigger the meteorite, the bigger the crater produced.
– the flattest shapes made the biggest craters and
– the softer the landing surface, the bigger the crater.
They are looking forward to carrying out their next investigation!
Room 5 have loved the rugby programme over the past 4 weeks. The coaches (Darren and Danny) who delivered the sessions were excellent and we were always excited to participate. During P.E we will continue to develop the skills we have learned over the block!
P.S – We even got our photo took with the two fabulous coaches!
Another school week is almost over, but before we can kick back and enjoy the weekend we are in for a real treat. Room 15, P5 starlets are sharing their learning with the whole school at 11am in the form of an assembly.
