Parachutes!

In Mr Ward's class on Wednesday the 7th December, we did a science about parachutes and a test about it. Firstly,  we got some materials: coloured tissues, red fabrics, bubble wrap and newspaper. We picked some materials, decorated it and then attach it to some string (the length was your own choice). Then we made an object to be the 'test person' for the parachutes. Most people used paper clips. Once everyone had done at least one, we did a test of the parachutes. Ocean and Ollie came 1st, Emma and Lani came 2nd and Aimee and Lucy came 3rd. We made more then one parachute in our pairs. Unfortunately, we ran out of time, so we didn't get to test the other parachutes. It was really fun that day making the parachutes!!



Our Class Showcase!!

As you may know, from our invitation, we had a class showcase. We did 2 stories (parts two of our presentation) The Stone Age Boy and the Digestive System.
We performed the Stone Age Boy story first then the Digestive System. We all got placed as different characters. The stone age boy's main characters were Luke (the boy from modern time) Ugg (Yasmin the girl from stone age) Mother (Aimee Luke's Mother) and Aaliyah (The Narrator). Now I'm gonna tell you the Digestive Systems main characters, they were Emma (The narrator) Edith (the food) and Erin (The Saliva). The main plot of stone age boy was... Luke walking in woods trips over falls down, down, down... wakes up in the Stone Age where he meets Ugg. He gets shown around the home and special place then gets scared by bear and wakes up in his bedroom. Was it a dream or not? In the digestive system we just showed a demonstration of how it breaks down the food and the food travels down through the body into the toilet.

The Eggcellent Experiment

In Science we did an experiment on tooth decay. First we got split into 4 groups of 7 and then we wrote our prediction of which liquid would ruin the egg first. Most people put coca cola. We had 3 liquids; orange juice, coca cola and water. Each group had to put the equal amount of liquid in each glass container, then Mr Ward put each container on 4 different window sills in our classroom. A week later we each had a look and all the coke and orange juice was all mouldy but the water was fine. We had a smell of the coke eggs and they had a slight smell of vinegar to them but mainly coke, the orange juice eggs had a really strong vinegar smell to them and the water eggs were fine. Then came the worst part - we had to touch them! Mr Ward put his hand into every single liquid to get the egg out (he even put his hand in the mouldiest of all... the Coke!) When all of the eggs were out we each had to hold them (It was DISGUSTING!) One of the coke eggs (the worst) had mould all over it! We had to fill in a sheet of how it looked, smelled and felt. The orange juice turned out to be worst because most of the outer shell had peeled of, on the coke eggs some of it had peeled of and the water eggs were fine.

So our results of the Eggcellent experiment were... Orange juice is the worst for tooth decay, coke second and water doesn't do anything!

The Food Chain Web

Recently, as part of our Science, we did a Spider Web Food Chain for our topic on digestion and eating. We started off by picking the sun and then we had three producers: Grass, Stinging Nettle and Tree. Then we has our three consumers(Herbivore): The squirrel who ate the tree, the caterpillar, who ate the stinging nettles and the giraffe who ate the grass. Then we had the consumer herbivores(Carnivore): The lioness who ate the giraffe, the bird that ate the caterpillar and the fox who ate the squirrel. Finally there were the consumer carnivore (The carnivore that ate the carnivore!): Bear that ate the fox, the Golden Eagle that ate the small bird and nothing could eat the Lioness because it is at the 2nd to top of the food chain. At the top of the whole food chain is... THE HUMAN!

St. Margaret Clitherow, Eden Park, Galmpton, White Rock and Brixham C of E. There were 9 pupils in each group, but every match 2 pupils had to sit out, then be replaced with 2 other pupils.

Real P.E.


This week in PE we started a new PE system, which is called Real PE.

In Real PE we did a warm up game where Mr Ward would say a gear 1-4.In gear 1 we had to walk, in gear2 we had to walk faster, gear 3 we would jog and gear 4 we would hop.
We also had to play a mini game where we had to set out a court with cones,  try to bounce the tennis ball in the other persons side. If the ball bounced more than one time or you bounced it in your court the other person gets a point. Then we did 2v2.

To end the real PE session we had some cards laid out on the floor and on them they had different challenges to develop our skills. There were 6 different coloured cards, each with a harder skill than the one before, some of the challenges were: roll the ball around our bodies whilst sat down and roll the ball up and down our bodies without bending our legs!
