As part of our remote learning, Beech class were set the task of researching information all about Thomas Edison. This linked to our work on Electricity. Elizabeth and Thomas wrote super reports all about his life and work. You can read them below.
BONES IN OUR HANDS Y3/4
We have looked at a model of our hand without any bones! We decided they had no shape and we would not be able to pick up anything! Our bones give us our shape and stability and movement.
We next looked at x-rays to analyse the bone structure of our hands. Then we made models to explore each finger's bone structure. We learnt about 'hinge joints' which fill our hands. We have 27 bones in each hand.
INITIAL IDEAS ABOUT SKELETONS
In pairs we thought what our skeletons may look like and we made dog biscuit diagrams!
Year 5 have been researching out about how some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect. After our research, we worked in groups to create our own working pulley systems.
