We are learning about energy and forces in Science at the moment. We experimented with lots of different things to help us learn about floating and sinking. We made predictions for each item and then we tested each one in a basin of water. We tried the experiment with different things, such as a coin, a paperclip, a piece of wood and even an orange! We were really surprised at some of our results. We also tested a ball of play dough, which sank. We then worked in our table groups to change the shape of the play dough to try and make it float on water. This was messy but fun!
We finished off our work on athletics in P.E. recently with some fun stations.
Well done to Lee and Olivier who both brought in their white belts from Tae-kwon-do recently. Thank you for bringing them in to show the class. Well done boys, keep up the good work!
We spent some time earlier this week looking back on our memories of 2018 and making some New Year’s resolutions. Today we brainstormed other things that happen when we celebrate a new year. We looked at photographs of New Year celebrations in different places around the world. We drew some fabulous fireworks using black paper and coloured chalk. Some of them are even hanging up on the Wow Wall! We are very proud of our work.
Dillon brought in a lovely trophy and medal that he got for Kung Fu and Edoardo brought in a trophy that he got recently for some after school sports. Well done boys, keep it up!
We have been working on our narrative writing by reading and writing different kinds of stories. Have a look at our version of the fairy tale ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.

Happy New Year to everybody! It is hard to believe that it is 2019 already. We are settling back into school and ready to do our best. Keep checking back to see what we are doing in Room 8!
