9/16 We completed an Expert block on Science, which was connected to our literacy through Pirates. The children explored materials. They investigated the properties of materials such as flexibility, recoil, and strength. They investigated who could create a boat shape from plasticine, foil or plastic that would hold the most cannon balls.
9/16 The next Expert block was history. The children have been comparing cars, boats, planes and bicycles from the past and present. The looked at and discussed similarities and differences. They completed this work by creating an information book on a mode of transport of their choice from those studied. These were displayed on Open morning.
