Woodpeckers’ Science | 08 Feb 2022

This morning, Woodpeckers began their investigation into states of matter, racing a variety of liquids down a ramp to test their viscosity. Have a look at the results below.

This morning, Red Kites began their investigation into the thickness (or viscosity) of different liquids. Check out the results below.

This week, we’ve been learning: How to multiply and divide numbers by 10 and 100. How to identify shield, composite and cinder cone volcanoes. How to further improve our descriptive powers by using similes, metaphors and fronted adverbials in our writing. How to make a paper laptop, defining the CPU, RAM and Hard Drive. And… …

Tedious puns aside, Red Kites spent the morning learning about the three different states of matter and how some things like cola and toothpaste and sand can be very difficult to classify!

This week, we’ve been learning all about earthquakes, volcanoes and the infamous ring of fire in our topic lessons. We also managed to squeeze in some time to analyse how volcanoes are depicted in art, and create some of our own. In maths, we’ve been working hard on learning how to multiply by 10. And …

Below are a few snaps of Falcons beginning their ‘Setting Description’ journey. We’ve been reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for inspiration and have now moved onto creating and sharing a bank of words to up-level our descriptive powers!

Falcons spent the morning getting to grips with the concrete, pictorial and abstract elements of multiplication and division.
