We went outside in science yesterday to measure the distance of the planets from the Sun. The two groups worked really well together to correctly measure the distances. We obviously used a much smaller scale so that we could fit onto our school field!
We conducted another science experiment this week. We were trying to find out whether reducing the surface area of an object would make it fall faster or slower. Our predictions were correct, the ball of paper fell the fastest meaning that a smaller surface area reduced air resistance and made it fall faster.
We had a fantastic start to the new school year. A special visitor joined us to talk to us about things that had been in the news recently. She discussed Black Lives Matter, which linked to the work that we had been doing on Martin Luther King. We produced beautiful artwork and changed Martin Luther King's speech into a poem. They are icredible!
