For our first science learning we were using our observation skills. We took a range of different sizes/shapes/weighted balls outside. Here we threw them up and bounced them. We needed to observe what happened when we did this. How did it change with the different balls? Were we able to identify the forces that were acting on the balls in each of these circumstances? We then attempted to make this more accurate and reliable by measuring the bounce.
In the next lesson, 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.
In Year 6, we have carried on reading The Jungle Book and asking inference questions as well as learning new vocabulary as this book has some excellent language. We also recapped our possession apostrophe skills.
In Year 6, we have been learning about measures. We have recapped our measuring skills for length and mass. We used our knowledge of what common objects measure to make close estimations and we learnt how to convert between different units of measure.
Stars of the Week
I am a star for being a great communicator and making lots of interesting contributions to class discussions.
I am a star for being a great thinker in maths. I followed each step carefully and was able to successfully solve an area problem independently.
I am a star for being an awesome enquirer by making accurate observations in science.
