Maths Wizards!

Exploring Ice!

This week the Robins have been busy investigating ice. We explored how it’s made from water, freezes and can melt back into water. We carried out an experiment to see where it would melt the fastest. We placed different bowls in different areas: outside, the fridge, the freezer, on Mrs. devine’s desk, and on a radiator. We found that it melted faster on the radiator and froze hard in the freezer freezing onto the bowl.image image image

Kensuke’s Kingdom

In class, Year 6 have been reading a book called Kensuke’s Kingdom. In this book, Michael, who is the main character, and his family go on a year-long sailing trip around the world. We discussed reasons for and against Michael going on this trip. We then wrote a balanced argument based on our discussions. Please read Ben and Luke’s balanced arguments.

On Thursday and Friday we looked at volcanoes in Italy and wrote descriptively about an eruption. We have had a fantastic week and even managed to create a pesto pasta salad with Junior Chef.

Healthy Chefs!

This week the Robins have taken part in a Junior Chef session. This has involved making their own delicious and healthy fruit crunch bowl. This was inspired and specially designed from reading the story, Handa’s Surprise. It was a fantastic experience for the Robins. They did a great job following the recipe and they were incredibly well behaved.
