We are so fortunate to have Miss Turner teaching us music as she is so talented. We continued learning our song using instruments and our voices. The difference today was that it was in class today rather than the hall (rain caused a change in venue for PE and mucic).
Thanks Mr Wyatt, we had a great time around the campfire toasting marshmallows!
We learnt that eating healthy can help us feel good. Also eating together makes us happy. Some of us had never tried lychees, kiwi or strawberries.
Well-being week was kicked off with whole school Zumba, which was instructed by Mrs Hughes and the Year 5 “Fortnight” crew.
Well done to a fantastic performance! Many of you picked up new lines and did wonderfully. Others memorised their lines and everyone did a fab job!
In geography, we have been learning about mountains. Today we created contours on potatoes.
We tested filtration, magnetic attraction and sieving in order to separate the following:
- Sand suspended in water (suspension).
- Salt dissolved in water (solution).
- Raisins in flour (mixture).
- Paperclips in rice (mixture).
As you can see, we succeeded.
We then discussed evaporation and how the water would evaporate from the salt and water solution, leaving behind salt crystals.
