Our challenge was to make a shape display. We had to work in small teams to create our displays and include detailed labels for our 3D and 2D shapes.
We have begun to learn the ukulele. So far we have played a song where you pluck each string separately and a song where you strum a chord. The chord of C was our first chord. Our partner helps us to know where our fingers go, on the finger-board. Another new chord next week....
We wanted to find out whether all the magnets in the box had the same strength. Using a ruler and a paper clip, we slowly moved the magnet nearer to the paper clip and recorded the distance when the paper clip began to move. The strongest magnet moved the paper clip from further away.
'Alfie Strange' was the title of the play we enjoyed, taking us on a whistle stop tour of the history of Britain. On the way we met a Roman soldier, a Viking invader, a highwayman and a policeman. It was fast paced and funny. We were even able to ask the actors questions at the end.
This story, written by Ted Hughes, has been the inspiration for much of our work. We have used adjectives and adverbs to describe the scene at the cliff where the story begins. We have used instruments to make a soundscape as the Iron Man fell from the cliff. We have used cutlery to make our own models and drawings. Here is a selection of photographs of us at work.
After we folded our A4 piece of paper and decided on how we would measure, we we ready to make a fair test. Some people chose distance travelled and some chose to time descent in seconds. We helped each other to measure and record.
As part of our MH100 topic we learned about how much research went on as part of the Airfield and then at B.T.
We became scientists too. Our own investigations were about keeping a piece of paper in the air, for as long as possible. There were lots of discussions about the best way to test the different methods and record our work. Check in soon to find out how we tested our ideas.
