Our visit to Forest Hill Library!
This week in science we tested different materials to find out which would make the best shadow for our shadow puppets.
We found that card was the best material because it is opaque and sturdy.
As part of our learning about Chinese New Year we tasted Chinese food! We tasted chow mein noodles, spring rolls, prawn crackers, sweet chilli dip and vegetable fried rice!
In maths we have been learning to double and halve numbers to 20.
This week as part of our learning about materials, we did an experiment to find out which materials would make the toy car go furthest on a ramp. We tested, fur, carpet, laminate and sandpaper.
These were our results. The car tavelled 5 cm on the fur, 24cm on the carpet, 26cm on the sandpaper and 60cm on the laminate! The laminate was the best material for the ramp because it is smooth and there is less friction.
