Crime and Punishment
Our new topic this term is crime and punishment. Our first task was to solve the crime of the missing science equipment using different clues and experiments.
We are hoping that we managed to find out how crime and punishment has changed since 1066 through our learning this half term.
Last half term, we studied extreme Earth and looked at earthquakes, volcanoes and other natural disasters. We designed and made volcanoes with the intention to erupt them. Finally, the sun came out and our eruptions were successful.
The term started with some team work- we had to work in small groups to design and build paper bridges. These bridges had to cross a gap of 30cm and be made from 3 newspapers and some masking tape. Once made we tested them to see which were the strongest. When we tested we added kilogram weights to see how strong our structures were. This testing caused great excitement as some bridges held 8 kg but one crumpled under the weight of 5 kg.
Last week Falcons were struck by a natural disaster. This happened during assembly and when we returned to class we found the classroom had been struck by an earthquake. The tables were upturned and our belongings all over the place. We looked for clues and discovered an earthquake had struck. Once we had cleared up in record time, we researched the first aspect of our topic- Extreme Earth.
