Changes of State

This week we carried out an investigation where we thought about the changes different materials go through when immersed in water. We soaked beads overnight in water and when we came to school the next day they had absorbed the water and had expanded! We realised that this was an irreversible change as the beads will not go back to their original state. We loved this investigation and enjoyed trading our beads with each other to makes lots of lovely patterns too!

Science Week

We have had a fantastic time this week participating in lots of hands on Science Activities! Here are some pictures of us enjoying the Sky Dome (where we watched a video about Space) and our exciting Matter Matters workshop.

Suspense and Mystery Drama

In English, we have been learning about suspense and mystery texts. For one of our activities, we came up with our own suspense and mystery dramas. We thought of our story lines, chose a setting for our drama and also acted along to creepy music to build suspense throughout our performances! Take a look at some pictures of us in action.
