It has been another jam packed week of learning opportunities.
The boys and girls produced some fantastic inventions and shared these with the class. We had a pet app where you could talk to your pet and interpret what they needed, a teleporter, a cooker that cooks itself, a portable cleaning system, the ideas were very inventive and thank you for any input you might have given.
We also created our own parachutes and investigated air resistance a little more by designing something that could travel slowly and safely to the ground without cracking the boiled egg! Our winning team made it land safely in 0.8 seconds!!
Drawing the other half of a symmetrical shape proved a little tricky for some ensuring they used the squares to navigate their way across the mirror line. There will be a follow up homework task next week to develop this skill a little more.
We have also been finding out about Children in Need and what it does. We are in the process of writing a persuasive argument as to why it is necessary plus it is good timing as this is taking place next Friday. The boys and girls can buy a duck in class for 50p for the duck race that takes place on the Children in Need website. Winners in each class will receive a small prize.
It is getting colder so can we remind the boys and girls to wear coats as well as their jumpers or hoodies to school and they still need gloves on a Thursday for their weekly HIIT!
Have a good weekend!
