We enjoyed another visit from Mr Rose on Thursday 11th May. He spoke to us all about magnets and magnetism and the “invisible” force they use to attract certain types of metals. We learned the word, “repel” and used the magnets to test out how this felt. We had fun working with our partners and testing objects around the class.
We had a great time last week learning about the journey food takes through our bodies. Everyone was surprised to learn that our small intestines are 6 metres long!
Later on we had fun exploring the different exhibits on offer. We tried out a thermal camera, a memory game, a multi tasking game, a body puzzle, an X-ray activity and much, much more! One exhibit even showed you what you might look like in 10 years time if you lived an unhealthy lifestyle! It was pretty scary!
Today, we were glad to see Mr Rose back in class to help us learn all about Forces. We have been learning that forces are all around us, all the time. We have been talking about gravity and the forces that we can apply to objects to make them move and change. We are looking forward to planning, testing and writing up our own experiment soon.
