Today the children enjoyed learning about and exploring different rhythms using instruments which are used when performing Samba. Here is a taster of things to come in the following weeks.

Stone Age Tools

Whilst learning about the Stone Age era, Y5C experimented with different materials to produce some Stone Age tools. The children had great fun designing and making their tools although found the joining together of components a real challenge. We are very proud of our results and hope you enjoy looking at the below pictures.

Science Super Learning Day

Today children in Y5C have been learning about and investigating with different types of sugar. We had a lot of fun throughout the day and realised the importance of fair testing and repeating results to ensure reliability. During the Guess Who sugar game, children displayed an excellent knowledge and understanding of the different properties of the types of sugar.

Science Blast

During Science Blast, the children watched a ball of plasticine sink to the bottom of a tank of water. They were then asked how they could make it float. We had a range of different theories on how to approach this including the addition of other resources. We all had a lot of fun testing our ideas and when we had succeeded were given a timed challenge using the scientific knowledge we had gathered from our investigating. Below are some pictures of the highs and lows.
