Here are some of our favourite things that we saw at the National Maritime Museum, in Greenwich
As part of our inquiry, we have been learning about wreckage diving. This really caught our interest. So on Thursday, we have Polly from Cristal Seas Scuba ( http://www.scuba4me.co.uk/childrens-courses) coming into school. They are a local company that teach people how to scuba dive and Polly is going to be telling us all about it what it is like.
What questions would you like to ask Polly?
Today we were demonstrating what subtraction really is, using the diennes blocks.
Here are some of our videos.
We were lucky enough to have some scientists, artists and writers come into school to inspire us and help us create some amazing pieces of art and writing.
The whole day was inspired by bacteria! First of all we learnt about how antibiotics kill bacteria by doing several science experiments, then we wrote poems describing bacteria using lots of similes. Finally, we created prints of patterns made using cultures of bacteria. It was an amazing day and we learnt so much!
Today, inspired by bridges around the world, we have been attempting to make bridges that could cross a (very scaled down) 10cm river. These pictures show some of our first attempts. Look how much some of them could hold! How do you think we got on? Any tips for when we make one to cross an imaginary river of 30cm?
We have been so lucky to be visited by two fantastic authors this half term! Firstly, the Norfolk Children’s Book Centre arranged for Morris Gleitzman to spend the morning with us talking about how he crafts his stories. Then our fabulous Patron of Reading, John Dougherty came to spend the day with us, singing all our favourite songs and reading from his new Stinkbomb and Ketchup Face book! Here are some pictures of us enjoying their visits. Tell us what you thought below.
So 6HE, persuade me why we can live on Mars!
Over to you!
