What did the mushroom say to the other mushroom? Your a fun-guy. (Haha! Get it?)
In the morning Beech group strolled down to the stream and Ryan spotted some fungus on a log, once they had finished their trek they trudged back up to stump central, went through the boundries, had a chat and went back out to play. Joseph, Carter and Ryan built a den on a tree that had half fallen over and Alisha and Caty went on a woodland walk to go and find some fungus on trees.
In The afternoon Oak group went to the woods and went through the boundries and went out to play. Jack, Leon, Millie and Demi went on a stroll around the woods and they found some eggy things in some water in a hole in a tree whilst Jake, Sam, Will and Hugo were playing sword fighting in the so-called Battle Arena. After that everybody went back to stump central and they enjoyed having squash and digestive biscuits and had a chat and pick up equipment in the woods and went back to school at the end of the day.
Many thanks to those of you who supplied old plastic bottles last week. Today, we used them for our experiment! Together, we planned how we would investigate our question ('Does the shape of a plastic bottle affect how far you can squeeze water out?'), conducted the experiment, and recorded our results in bar charts. According to our investigation, flat bottles are better than large, small and narrow, and small and wide bottles at squeezing out water. Great investigation skills Elephants!
Year 6 have been learning about electrons, electric current and circuits. A few photos of children experimenting with cells, bulbs, switches, reed switches and rheostats.
