Autumn One 2021
Our Big Idea for Science is ‘What is the best material to make a ball?’ We looked at a variety of materials, such as wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, rock. We discussed what they were and sorted them into different groups. Next, we sorted the objects into the correct properties, e.g bumpy, soft, hard, stretchy etc. Finally, we completed a science investigation. The question we were investigation was – which ball will bounce the highest? We had to make sure it was a fair test so we dropped the ball from same height, with the same force and on the same surface. We found out that the golf ball bounced the highest because it was made from rubber!
Toy Story – The Hook
We had a toy lady come into school. We learnt about what sorts of toys children played with in the Victorian times. We discussed how different games and toys were played and looked carefully at what they made from. We noticed that all the toys were made from wood and metal. Non of the toys were made from plastic like they are now. We used our history skills to compare different toys from the past. We had great fun playing with the different toys and we also got to dress up as Victorian children!
