This week, Year Five had fun carrying out a science investigation to find out which chocolate bars float in water. We discovered that the amount of air pockets in each chocolate bar affects whether it will float.

Week beginning 28th March 2022

Working out our “Setting Toolkit” – things we can use in our writing to write a good setting description. We found lots of ideas written out on papers in the Meadow Hall and then as a group decided whether it would help us write a good setting or not. Our next task was then to find the setting toolkit in our model text from Kensuke's Kingdom.

5/6 D were learning about contour lines and topographic maps as a way of showing mountains on a map. We made our own mountains from plasticine and sliced them, before drawing round each piece to show our topo map. The results were really good!
