Well the Easter holidays seem like a distant memory and we are soon approaching May half term! We have been very busy this term learning about how scientists work and what they do. The class have faced many challenges such as solving problems - How can we build a house which is water resistant? Making Predictions - Which household item is the best for cleaning copper pennies? and Creating Surveys - Which glove is the best for picking up small items/being the most waterproof or having the best grip?
We came to the conclusion that tomato ketchup and lemon juice were the best for cleaning pennies!
The children have learnt how to work well in a team and the challenges scientists may face and this week we are going to look at how scientists work in the real work using chromatography - watch this space!
I am very impressed with all the super homework coming in linked to our Viking topic. Uzair has again provided us with lots of exciting research, Emilia has shown us lots of Viking clothing and Viking runes and Dylan & Georgia wowed us today with a Viking axe & shield! Toby made us some yummy oat cakes earlier on this term and the plastic containers were empty by the end of the day! I look forward to receiving more homework this term.
Please remember to practise your spellings each week and bring P.E kits in every week. With the warmer weather coming up, it will be a shame to miss out due to leaving your kit at home!
Each week we will update our blog with activities, pictures and comments on what we have been learning!
