Our topic this half term is BRIGHT SPARKS and in science, we are learning all about electricity! We have been making circuits with bulbs, buzzers and motors and we have researched electricity using some interesting books.

      SCIENCE WEEK!

We investigated which liquids were the slowest. Surprisingly, golden syrup wasn't always the slowest liquid! We found soup and washing up liquid to be the fastest.

We discussed different solids and worked out what materials they were made from. We thought about whether these materials were synthetic (people-made) or natural which led us to an interesting discussion as to whether bones and skin are 'people made' or natural. We then compared and classified some materials based on their properties.

To kick off our Science week, we planned and carried out an investigation into whether listening to music helps our memory. Our results found that 14 people's memory scores improved when listening to music, 6 stayed the same and 5 got worse. We concluded that some people may learn differently to others. 

 

We also worked in small groups to research some famous scientists. We discovered some really interesting facts such as:

* Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb

* Stephen Hawking's machine speaks in an American voice but he is British

* Marie Curie has a cancer charity named after her

* Albert Einstein hated school but taught himself at home 

* Charles Darwin was a naturalist, geologist and a biologist!

* Sir Isaac Newton discovered gravity

We have been reading T S Eliot's 'Macavity: The Mystery Cat', and today we have been working in groups to perform the poem. Watch the videos below to see the full poem.

Our 'Plague Cure' adverts

Today, we learnt about different ways that people tried to cure the Plague in the 1600s. From leeches to drinking urine, they were sometimes a little gruesome! We created and performed some adverts to persuade our audience to choose our cure.
