November- we discussed light and how it travels in straight lines. We looked at reflective surfaces and how they can help us see around corners.
6th November- Our new topic is Light and Shadow. Today we learned how we need light to see and without light there is complete darkness. We had an object at the bottom of a tube, we gradually added holes in the tube to let in more and more light until we could see the object. It took a long time and a lot of holes. This also helped us understand that light travels in straight lines.
October- We learned all about fossils, how they are formed and what we can learn from them. Then we created some of our own fossils just to see how much detail they can hold. We have learned a lot about prehistoric animals from fossils.
Monday 1st October- Today we created our own simple experiments. First we completed an experiment with skittles and then came up with our own investigations. We were wondering what makes the colour run, how we could make it happen faster and was it only skittles this happens to. So we tested other sweets too and also chnaged the temperature of the water.
Our topic for this term is rocks and fossils- we have looked at compared different types of rocks. We have also used chocolate bars as a way to distinguish between the three different types. Metamorphic, Igneous and sedimentary
