Minibeast Hunt

We went outside on the hunt for minibeasts
Searching in the greenery
Our tick sheet showed what we had found
Great teamwork
There were lots of woodlice on this log
It was great to look at what we had found
They looked fantastic under magnification

Learning To Use The Webcam

We used the Purple Mash ‘Mashcams’ program
We chose what we wanted to be when we get older
We made sure our face was in the middle
“Guess what I wants to be”
“A spaceman!”
“I want to be a policeman”

Making Predictions

Would the items float or sink?
We made our predictions and sorted the objects
We worked as a team and discussed our choices
We agreed on some items and disagreed on others
We couldn’t wait to test our predictions... we headed to the water trough
The items were placed into the water
We found out whether our predictions were correct
It was great fun
We love being scientists

Coding With Beebot

We used Beebot to help us to learn how to code
He has buttons to program his movements
He can go forwards, backwards and also turn
Our algorithm determines where he moves
We use the street mat to plan his route
It is great to watch him go

Learning With Minecraft

Mr Patterson has taught us the basics of Minecraft
We use a special educational version

Making Balloon Rockets

We made rockets out of balloons
They were pumped up and stuck to a straw
String was then threaded through the straw
As the balloons deflated they took off
Watching them was great fun
It was a great science activity
