I Always Get Smart!

Methmi is such a fabulous young lady: she never ceases to amaze me! During Science lessons, we have been thinking about changing states and have been investigating the question: Does temperature affect the rate of melting? She took it upon herself to use a thesaurus to research a bank of vocabulary that she could use in her write up so as she did not repeat herself and to ensure her word choices were appropriate! Well done. What a superstar you are!

We are marvellous mathematicians!

Well done and thank you to these superstars for being so kind as to help their friends understand how to compare decimal numbers using the < and > symbols! Your use of mathematical language was excellent. Talking your friends through the method of looking at each place value column in turn, and helping them to remember which symbol is which, enabled them to compare the decimal numbers accurately. Thank you and I hope you are proud of yourselves!

Let’s keep being kind to each other and working collaboratively so that together, we can make as much progress as possible before you become Year 5’s!

The event will be £1.50 which will include a hotdog and a drink and all funds raised will go towards a McDonalds treat for the Year 6’s going to London and a McDonald’s treat for the Year 6’s who will be staying in school.

Additional sweets will be available to purchase in addition to raise further funds. The event will start at 4:30pm and finish at 7:00pm promptly. Children must be collected by an adult from this event.

Next week, KS2 children will be decorating their own plain t-shirts ahead of the game. If you are happy for your child to decorate a t-shirt, please send the t-shirt into school no later then next Tuesday.

Kason is getting brave and Mrs H is dafter than we thought!

Whilst investigating Oobleck, Kason asked a huge amount of questions to build his understanding of its, in Kason’s words, ‘weird properties’. One of his questions was, ‘What does it smell like?’ I told him I didn’t know and to smell it to find out.

’No,’ he said. ‘You smell it!’

Knowing what was coming, I took off my glasses to ‘smell’ the Oobleck. Here is what followed…

We learnt that the Oobleck splits over time to form a watery layer on the top which is what I mainly got all over my face. However, when this watery layer evaporated and my face was dry again, the Oobleck solution left behind a powdery layer which was very tricky to get off! My eyelashes were still white when I got home! Never mind – it was worth it to help your children remember their learning about this Non-Newtonian fluid. Kason had a great time too!

Oh, and to answer K’s question: It doesn’t have a smell!

We are Scientists!

Is it a solid? Is it a liquid? No it’s a non-Newtonian fluid! Years 3 and 4 have been making and investigating Oobleck this week. They were asked to pay particular attention to its ‘state of matter’ properties and to record how it behaved in a variety of situations. As you can imagine, we had great fun whilst learning lots in 4H!

More investigation photos will be added next week…

Well done everyone: I heard great discussion about the properties of Oobleck – you did a great job of washing it all off of your hands and into your bowls too so we didn’t block the toilet drains! Miss Trindall will be pleased with us all!
