HUMAN SKELETON

To start our science topic on the skeleton and movement, we used dog biscuits to demonstrate our understanding of the human skeleton.

Now we made 'dog bone' diagrams after we had seen x-rays of our skeleton and a detailed x-ray of our skull.

Finally we transferred our new understanding and create superb 'dog bone' diagrams of a dog's skeleton.

Roald Dahl Science – Rocket Balloons

We worked in teams.

We observed what made our balloons move – the power of air pushing the balloon as the air rushed out.

We learnt how hairy string slowed down the balloon. “This is friction,” said Alfie.

“By blowing more air in, the balloon will travel faster and further,” explained Peter.

Peter also observed that the sellotape and the more air could weigh the balloon down and also slow down the balloon.

We put what we had learnt about the power of air into action.

We built a vehicle and tried to use trapped air in the balloon to power it.
