As part of our science topic, we looked at teeth and the effect that some liquids have on them. We used eggs in our experiment instead of teeth and left them in apple juice, orange juice, milk, water and cols for a week. We found that the drinks with most sugar and acid had a terrible effect on the shell of the egg. Milk and water had no effect.
This half term, our adventure will take us to Ancient Rome.
The children will learn about life as a Roman soldier and some of the amazing things the Romans did for Britain. For example, did you know that the Romans invented aqueducts? They were very clever and used 'state of the art' technology to build them!
Class 4/5 have had an amazing time at the Royal armouries. They enjoyed looking round the museum and attended a workshop where they learned all about Roman soldiers. They even got to try on some of the armour and handle the weapons!
Well done boys and girls - your behaviour was impeccable!
In science, the children have been learning about the different states of mater - solids, liquids and gases.
States of matter.
Can you guess which state of matter the children are being?
read the descriptions and watch the video!
In a solid, particles are close together in ordered rows. They move a little bit on the spot.
In a liquid, the particles are quite close together, but can move around each other easily. They move quite a bit moving gently past each other.
In a gas, particles can move around very quickly in all directions. There is a lot of space between each particle.
Here are the answers.
Video 1= liquid.
Video 2 = gas.
Video 3= gas.
Video 4= solid.
Did you get them all correct??
This half term, we have been learning about Ancient Greece.
We made Greek clay pots.
Take a lookat some...
we still enjoy playing the ukulele every Wednesday with Mr Mercer.
We have become budding musicians!!
Welcome back Class 4/5!
Meet the parents!
To end our Greek Adventure, we invited our parents in to our classroom where we could serve them a 3 course Greek inspired menu. The children enjoyed being chefs and waiters for the day. They did a really good job.
