Our mad science session. 28/4/17

April 28th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today Charlie the scientist came into Year 5 to teach us about space.

He talked with us about different facts about Space, all children had a go at answering different questions.









We then spent time creating our own comet, we placed the moulds in water and left the comet to set.


























While we waited, we performed a space challenge. Using large gloves we had to build with Lego, at first we thought this would be ok, but then we realised ….

































After our tricky challenge, it was time to see how our comets had turned out. We opened the mould, got out the comet and rolled it around our hands.














What what was your most favourite part of the session? What facts can you remember?

Today we visited Tesco to have a look at different foods and alternative healthy foods. We took it in turns to go to different aisles to look at the food available. We looked on the fresh aisle, frozen aisle and the tinned aisle.

We then talked about how much sugar was in certain foods. We were all surprised to find out that a small can ok Coke contains eleven cubes of sugar, when then recommended daily allowance is six cubes per day.









Lastly we looked at our faviourte breakfast cereal to see how much sugar it contained. Some children were rather shocked. To end our session we enjoyed healthy snacks, which all the children enjoyed.









What was your favourite part of the session?

The year 5 children worked hard to create slam poems, each child created their own. We then had a competition where each child recited their poem and the children voted for their favourites to perform infront of our two judges, Mrs Ryan and Mr Horton.

This week in art we had three different activities. A group children started to tie and die their fabric, which in time will represent planets.




Another group started to cut and stick to make the sun.





The third group drew their suns and started to colour on the back, ready for next week where we will trace our suns onto lino tiles.


Well done to all children today for their efforts.
