There are lots of tricky verb tenses that need to be learned in Years 5 and 6. It's amazing how adding a pair of dice and a competitive game can jazz them up!

Our Science question was: 'What are the best conditions for plants to grow?'

 

We decided to test this by putting cress seeds in different environments. These were: the freezer (no light, no warmth and no water), on the windowsill (light, warmth and water), on the windowsill with no water (light, warmth, no water), in a box (water, warmth and no light) and on the windowsill with an ice pack (light, water, no warmth). This way, we will know which variable has affected the results the most.

 

We predict that the pot in the freezer will be the least successful because it has none of the conditions which plants need to grow. 

 

To make this investigation fair, we used the same amount of kitchen roll in each group, the same size cup, the same amount of water, the same amount of seeds and we will top-up the moisture at the same time each day, in each group. It is also important that we measure the seeds' growth at the same time in each group to ensure that they have had the same amount of time to grow. 

20.01.17 - Performing 'Hello' by Adele using different expressions and moods

We've started looking at poetry this week and have been performing Adele's 'Hello'. To create an interesting performance, the groups had a different mood or expression that they were asked to perform the song in. These were sarcasm, anger, excitement and fear. See if you can see when each one starts!
