Science- We used different materials to create a roof for a shelter
In Science, we were put in groups and set a challenge to make a roof for a shelter. We used art straws to keep the roof stable then we covered each roof with a material. The materials we could choose from were plastic, metal (tin foil), material (cotton) and paper. We predicted which material would be the strongest, the most waterproof and the most windproof. Then we tested our predictions. Miss Unwin used a hairdryer to test if the material was windproof and a watering can to test if the material was waterproof. We were surprised by some of the outcomes but the majority of us predicted something correctly.
RE- Harvest food tasting
Most of the food was delicious however some was a little tangy!
In our Literacy lesson, we all had a go at a drama activity. We had to pretended to be a character from the story 'Man on the Moon'. Not only did we have to get into character but we also had to pretend to be on the moon too. We all enjoyed this activity and hope that we can do it again soon. In drama activities, you have to act in different ways and sometimes pretend to be someone else.
Measuring lengths using a ruler (cm)
Firstly in Maths, we practised measuring objects using non-standard measures like cubes and paper clips. However today, we had a go at using a ruler to measure objects in cm. We needed to make sure that our ruler was the right way around and that we started measuring from 0.

In our Literacy lessons, we have been learning about adjectives (describing words). We worked in small groups to think of as many adjectives as we could to describe certain things. Miss Unwin set us a challenge to think of more than 7 different adjectives and all of the groups did.

Our marble ink pictures
In Art, we used marble inks to create these amazing pictures. We put water in a tray and then added drops of coloured ink. Don't they look like they could be pictures from space?
