In science today, we have dissected a flower and found the different parts needed for pollination.
Just a few highlights from the trip!
Our Y6 rounders team had a great day at Handsworth Sports Club. There were 6 teams and we came 2nd overall. Well done to everyone!
Yesterday, we used our data loggers to measure the brightness of the bulb each time we added another cell. We spotted that the more cells you added, the brighter the bulb became (until it popped!).
We had to keep everything under cover so that the sensor was only reading the bulb’s brightness and not the sun’s!
This afternoon, we explored static electricity.
Some children rubbed the balloons on their heads and made their hair stand on end! The hairs were repelling each other because they had become positively charged. The negative charge had gone into the balloon.
Once the balloons were negatively charged, we managed to get them to stick to the wall.
Ask the children how we did it.
Last week, Y6 explored different simple machines that used gears, levers and pulleys. Here is some of the work they produced afterwards. We could have put any child’s up as they were all wonderful: well used vocabulary, scientifically accurate and beautifully presented.
Well done Y6!
We all enjoyed playing games in the sun this afternoon. The children played rounders, made their own obstacle courses, used the climbing equipment, ran some laps of the field and played frisbee.
Thank you for your contribtions to the Good Shepherd Appeal.
We tested our knowledge of the Easter story by ordering the many different events from Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday. Afterwards, we played Chatterbox to check how much we could remember.
