We have been studying the human skeleton and muscles.

Filip and Vaardaan have been designing their own step pyramid from rocks and stones in the playground. They even have a spinx.

Week 7 This week we have been learning about Friction in science. We went out into the playground and tested marbles to see which surface had the most and the least friction.
We found out the that the bumpier the surface, the more friction was caused and the marble got stuck or did not move very far. We also found out that the smoother the surface the faster the marble traveled as less friction was caused.
We are so proud of the learning that all of the children have achieved this term and to have been part of their journey.
The sky really is the limit!
