Today, in groups, we investigated a range of materials and their similar and different properties.
We assessed why items are made from various materials, based on their purpose and discussed the benefits and negatives of using different materials to make specific things. In groups we sorted definitions for a range of descriptive vocabulary to describe the properties of materials and answered the question ‘why am I made from this?’
Can I describe the movement of the Moon and its different phases?
As a class, we discussed how the moon reflects the sun’s light rather than has its own light. We looked at the different phases of the moon, learning what a waxing and waning moon is and how each phase occurs depending on where the Moon is when orbiting the Earth.
In groups we designed a poster using Oreos to model how the moon orbits the earth and the different phases of the moon.
Chestnut have all had a fantastic time today, learning more about space, the sun and the planets from a space scientist and artist. They enjoyed an afternoon of art, creating flags for their chosen planet, with lots of interesting facts about it on the back and have produced some great work!
Chestnut had a fascinating afternoon learning about the different part of a flower and how they are used in sexual reproduction. In groups, they used magnifying glasses and tweezers to dissect a lily. They discussed the function of each part of the flower and compared differences in development of each of their different flowerheads.
In Year 6 Chestnut class we celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday by looking at the seesaw in the Enormous Crocodile before designing and building our own seesaws out of recycled materials. We also took inspiration from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and looked at how the colour can be removed from skittles with water.
