On Wednesday, some of year 5/6 went to Swanmore to do a D&T workshop. We all had so much fun making the remote control cars. We made them from wood, plastic, a motor, wires and batteries. At the end there was a race to decide who went through to the final.
Thanks to Mrs Martin (for taking us and taking photos), Miss Cross Gower ( for organizing the trip) and the teachers that helped us make the cars at Swanmore.
We all really want to do it again!
Today year 5/6 had a visitor come in. He talked to us about his hand drums which are a drum that looks like a pan (wok). It was very interesting and most of us hadn’t seen one. We all had a a go/tap. It felt wired!
The man showed us some scales on his drum and played some music. He improvised instead of using sheet music.He told us to close our eyes and listen to the sounds of the drums. Everyone imagined what came to there minds with the music playing then we told each other.
He is very talented and we all thank him for coming and sharing what he can do!

This week in geography we finished are bird’s eye view of our class room and we got into pairs, each pair had one net-book between them. Between them they had to map a map of their local area. Once they had finished that they had to label where they live and where there partner’s house is and if they lived near the school they put down where the school is on the map. After they finished that you had to put a picture of something and tell us what it is and what do you do their so basically we are leaning how to use map and what the symbols mean on the map.
We have Miss Picton for geography.

This week in literacy we have been doing explanatory text.We have been looking at the features. Explanatory text is non-fiction, it has paragraphs, cause and effect connectives, time connectives, start to end and it also have introduction and conclusion. We wrote a explanation on how to write an explanation (confusing)!
On Thursday Mrs Picton In Geography we have been looking at mapping skills and going in partners and looked at the signs on the the map. We found out what they all meant and wrote them on a sheet, a bit like a quiz.

This week in science we have been doing an experiment with crisps. We were trying to find out what type of crisp out of 3 had the most salt in. The 3 types of crisps were baked, deep ridged & salt and shake.
On every type of crisp we would do 3 different experiments. The 3 which experiments our group did was : look on the back of the packet (which worked), count the grains of salt with a magnifying glass (which didn’t work) & wash the crisp with water,filter it and then let it evaporate for a few days.
It turns out that deep ridged is the saltiest according to our results. It was a great experiment and we had lots of fun!
