Some successful egg drops with a winning group! Two eggs landed intact. Our conclusions about air resistance will be ' eggstra' interesting! πŸ³πŸŽˆπŸ€“βœπŸΎπŸ€”πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜€

Our forces topic was fun this afternoon. We looked at two identical pieces of paper and dropped them from the same height. We then screwed up one of the pieces. We didn't change the mass of the paper but the balled up paper fell to the ground faster than the sheet. Why do you think this was?

We finally managed to make and use our sundial today. Proving the Earth is rotating and getting some sunshine - what's not to like? Science and maths in the sun πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜ŽπŸ€“πŸ˜πŸŒ•πŸŒ‘πŸŒŽ

The sun was hidden behind the clouds so unfortunately we couldn't continue with our experiment. Hopefully, tomorrow we will be able to test out our sundial! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ€”πŸ˜ŽπŸŒžπŸŒ₯β›…οΈπŸŒ€πŸŒ«πŸ•°

We loved the story of Laika ( a Russian stray ) the first dog in space!

Planet speed dating was lots of fun! Pretending we were the planets, we moved around the room trying to work out which planet our class mates were. We asked questions, gave clues and learned about the planets. Pluto was not invited to come speed dating...can't think why....πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ˜πŸ€“

Our Earth and Space unit began with an interactive lesson about the Solar system. We went speed dating as the planets to learn more about them! πŸŒŽπŸŒ•πŸŒ‘

Science was great fun this afternoon (even if the classroom smelled of vinegar all evening ). We were investigating irreversible changes and used a liquid (vinegar) and a solid(bicarbonate of soda) to create a gas (Carbon dioxide). When the two were mixed together, a chemical reaction occurred and the fizzy subtance created a gas, which filled the ballon. This experiment allowed us to see the gas being created because the balloon inflated.
