Wind dispersal

In Science we have been looking at how insects pollinate plants in different ways. To show how wind dispersal happens we used Cheesy puffs in a bag and put our hands in the bag. We had orange all on our hands then we moved to each table and put our hands in that bag. Each time we got more orange on our hands and this is what happens when bee's drop pollen off at each plant.

Water resistance challenge

In Science, Miss Willetts set us a challenge to find out the best design for a boat. We researched what a good boat needs, for example it needs to be streamline, then we made boats in teams and raced them! We had super fun and 'Bob' the boat won the race!

Parachute making!

In Science we are learning all about forces. This week we have investigated air resistance because a parachute company asked for our help to design a super parachute. We had to test different materials and discussed how to keep it a fair test.
