Formidable Forces!

We have been so busy in Science. So far this term, we have investigated opposing forces, worked with Newton meters, planned and conducted a friction experiment, and studied air resistance! In the air-resistance experiment, which spinner do you think fell the fastest: the larger one or the smaller one? What about when we added weight…

Last Week’s Superstars

Here we have our Mathematician of the Week (left) and our Star of the Week (right). Our Mathematician was so focused with her place-value work last week, challenging herself and not giving up, while our Star was asking thoughtful and insightful questions (and continues to do so!). Then we have a special award — Scientist…

On the left we have the recipient of a bronze certificate for Terrific Teamwork.  This member of the class has been working really well with others, and she has also been so helpful. In the centre…

School Council

Last week, several children put themselves forward for school council. Each of these children gave a speech about why he or she would best represent Amethyst class this year. We then voted for one boy and one girl, and the two who were short-listed were interviewed by Mrs Murch. There was some tough competition, and…

Forces

In Science this half term, we are learning about forces. Today, we used Newton meters to measure the force of different objects around the classroom. Do you know why forces are measured in newtons (N)? Here is a clue:
