Thursday 27th September 




In Topic we are currently learning about The Kingdom of Benin. We have discovered that the people of Benin made many different kinds of art - one being weaving. We looked at the different colours and patterns certain people would weave and why they were used. 


Weaving was was definitely not an easy task, however, we got there in the end! We hope you enjoy looking at some of our fabulous masterpieces. Unfortunately, we won’t be taking any orders.... frown

Testing Air Resistance


In science we have been learning all about forces. Today we created our own parachutes with a bin bag, string, tape and a paper clip. We then dropped each parachute from the same height and timed how long it took to fall to the ground. We realised that the larger the surface area in the parachute, the greater the air resistance force. We all worked brilliantly in our groups and really enjoyed carrying out this experiment!

Sending Messages


Today we’ve been learning about different ways to communicate. Here we are sending messages using semaphores. I think we’re glad we no longer have to communicate this way! frown
