Is the force strong with class 6?
Our topic question for this week has been 'is the force strong in you?' We have been exploring forces and how friction affects movement. The children conducted an experiment where they tested the affect of friction on how far a toy car would travel on a variety of different surfaces. The results were fairly unanimous; the hall floor and table tops created the least friction when the car was travelling and the grass created the most!
In English this week we have been learning about poetry and how figurative language such as simile and personification can enhance our creative writing. Today the children started writing their own version of The Coming of the Iron Man by Brenda Williams.
This link is to a video all about similes and metaphors which the children might enjoy watching at home...
We didn't have as many star reader raffle tickets going in the jar this week so if we could have more next week that would be awesome! Remember you just need to read 3 times a week or more and ask an adult to record this in your school planner.
Class 6 are working their way up the Spelling Shed leader board so keep up the good work everyone!
Have a lovely weekend with friends and family as we remember those who lost their lives in the line of duty and commemorate the end of World War I.
