During our History and Geography lessons this year, we have been doing lots of learning about The Vikings! This term in our Science lessons, we are learning how The Vikings used to make things with the natural resources they had. Take a look at the pictures below of the children making butter using only cream and arm power and making butter using milk and vinegar.
In our English lessons, we have been learning the William Shakespeare play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. For our art lesson this week, we learnt about the artist and poet William Blake and focused on his interpretation of the play through his art work. We then had a go at recreating his painting and used water colours to bring it to life! Take a look at the pictures above :)
Terms 3 and 4
It is so lovely to see everyone, we've missed you!
This week in science, we experimented with air resistance and made our very own parachutes! (see above). We used multi-link as our parachuter and explored how different parachutes fall to the ground. We found that the bigger the surface area of the parachute, the more air resistance and therefore a slower descend to the ground!
We also found out that objects with the same mass and shape fall to the ground at the same time! If you drop a tennis ball and a cricket ball (the cricket ball is 3 TIMES heavier then the tennis ball) at the same time, they will land on the ground at the same time regardless of its mass! This is because there is the same amount of air resistance acting against them as they are the same shape - mind boggling!!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
