Stem Challenge

As part of our topic of plants, we looked at the function of the stem. We used our team building skills to make the best rigid structure but that could still suck up water. Our teams each had 40 straws and 20 minutes on the clock. We tried and failed but tried again. What great resilience!

Non-chronological report writing

We've used Science clips and the DK Find Out website to find information about the functions of different plant parts. Then we used these to write paragraphs about each part.

We are combining our Literacy and Science this week to start our new topic, "What plants need to grow well". We spent the morning finding out about the functions of roots and used BBC Science clips, the iPads and our observations to write a paragraph about what we found out.

We think our hair tonic might have worked a bit too well!

Hopefully Mr Lavis is back to normal after the half term holiday!
