We had a bead and some plastic tubing and needed to observe what happens when the bead is dropped into the tubing. Did the height of the curve make a difference? What forces were acting? We wrote what we observed.
We continued to use our plastic tubing and bead to investigate loop the loops! We needed to investigate what factors are important in achieving a loop the loop. Does the position of the loop make a difference? Does the angle of the tube going into the loop need to be a certain size? Does the size of the loop matter? We recorded our attempts and considered the forces that were acting to achieve a successful loop the loop.
Year 6 has continued their work on measures and focused on problem solving where we converted units of measure and had to apply the skills we have already mastered. We continued to extend our mental maths skills and we are getting excited about our Maths Day next week.
Year 6 has started learning about fiction books written in the genre of fantasy. We looked at examples online and thought about what ingredients make a fantasy story such as magic, dragons and imaginary worlds. We also compared two fantasy stories and thought about how they were similar and different.
