The Children had a visit from Dean Cody; he spoke to the children about R.U.D.E (respect, understanding, diversity and equality) in our society. He is a former parachutist in the army and a former policeman with a wealth of experience in these areas. He also brought in soem items he has collected from his travels from around the world.
Although it’s important not to use too much packaging, some packaging is necessary. If certain kinds of products are not packaged, they will go bad or break while being transported. The trick is to use packaging that is strong but sustainable – packaging that won’t harm the environment – and to use as little packaging as possible to get the job done. Your job is to make a sustainable package that is strong enough to keep your egg in one piece while using as little packaging as possible.
We began our science week by watching the live lesson by the BBC Terrific Science team about forces. We completed some short interactive activities whilst we learnt about gravity, upthrust, driving force, drag and friction through a racing car. We will be completing our own forces experiment based on the live lesson.
Our topic this term is Llandudno, so yesterday we visited this Victorian Seaside resort. We walked along the pier, threw pebbles into the sea, walked along the beach, took the tram up the Great Orme and then had an educational walk with the Wardenánd and learnt about the special habitats on the Orme.
