Numeracy- making a raft to escape the island!

Today in Numeracy the children have been thinking about how they can escape the island where we have crash landed in our plane.
They had to build a raft to carry 6 people ( and a wheelchair!) and get it to float.
No one managed to get it to float but we did use our skills of teamwork, perseverance, capacity, measuring of length and weight.
Have a look at our pictures.
Can you think why they didn’t float?
What would you do differently next time?

Science Investigation

4W created a science experiment about light and shadows.

We asked the question:
Will how close our pencil is to the source of light make a difference to the size of the shadow?

Have a look at our photos and the results and see what you think.
Write what you think happened.

Literacy Jobs!

Today in Literacy we decided on jobs that we might need to have to get to Lanka (an island) where our most favourite possession has been taken to and hidden in a cage by Juggernaut. Children acted those jobs.
Can you guess what each job is?
Can you think why we might need to do this job?

Add your ideas to this post please.

Hello 4W!


I hope you are all having a fabulous summer holiday!

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 4th September and starting a new year full of fun, friendship and lots of learning!
