Super Science Investigations this week (04.10.2017)
This week in Owls we had a fantastic Science afternoon preparing and making the resources that we need for our investigation on flight next week. The children had previously planned their investigation and decided in a group if they were going to explore how kites or parachutes work. Each group worked incredibly well together and showed great collaboration and problem solving skills.
Ask the children what they are investigating and how!
September Stunning Start!
On Tuesday afternoon Year 4 made their way to Gate 4 at the JW Airport to board a round the world flight. After watching an inflight safety video, we took off and could see the clouds rushing by the wings of our plane. We landed in an unknown destination and had to find Mrs Orange to get some picture clues. Using ipads and atlases we then had to find out what city and country we had landed in, as well as the language we would have to speak, the currency to use and research some facts of our own. We each had our very own passports where we could record all our information. In the course of the afternoon we visited; New York, Rio, Egypt, Sydney and Beijing! We even found out the distance travelled and duration of each flight. We certainly had a case of jet lag by the time we landed, but what a fun way to kick off our Flight topic!
