Science and Technology

In Science and Technology we have been constructing Rapunzel's tower and planning an escape.  We drew architect plans and evaluated how successful our escape routes were.  We have been investigating what a Knight would have to wear under his armour to protect his skin and we experimented with different materials. 


We have been logging in to Hwb to create charts from data we collected in Welsh and we will be using Bee Bot to help us sequence stories.  


We are learning to be enterprising citizens like Enterprising Ellen by problem solving, creating solutions to problems, trying different ideas and creating different products!



We are looking forward to investigating Light and Dark after half term with our trip to Techniquest.

We have thoroughly enjoyed exploring food, materials to help the Gingerbread Man and electricity in the Autumn term.  We wanted to know how light was made and got to make circuits.  They were not easy at first but we got there in the end. We experiemented with different amounts of batteries and bulbs and found out that more batteries makes the bulbs light up brighter. We found out where electricity comes from and how its made. 




We have enjoyed using Hwb to make bar charts of our favourite fruits and favourite Christmas presents.  We have thoroughly enjoyed logging into Matheletics to try and beat our scores and get more points.  During out Scrumptious topic we used the BeeBots to help us order the instructions for making butter and to help us retell the story of The Papaya that Spoke.  It was great fun!
