We then researched different forces (air and water resistance, gravity, surface friction) and how these forces would affect our attempts to land a rover on Mars to collect important data. From our research we designed our rovers that are capable of landing on Mars collecting information and returning home safely. They had to take into account the lower gravity, enormous storms, rocky terrain and frozen ground of the planet.
Year 6 had a fantastic time on their visit to Siem Reip and Battenbang. We explored the ancient temples of Beng Meala, learnt how to prepare and make Khmer dishes at a cookery class, watched 4 million bats fly out of their caves, visited Tonle Sap lake and received circus skills training from the performers at Phare Ponleu Selpak; The Cambodian Circus. The trip culminated in us being able to watch the evening show, with birthday boy Edward even making it onto the stage!
This week Year 6 have finished reading the book Demon Dentist. We have really enjoyed using this book as stimulus for our writing. The book had two fantastic twits at the end; with both a happy and sad ending. We have spent time analyzing how David Walliams created tension and built in good descriptions into his scenes. Doing this has really improved our own writing this learning block.
