Tulips in Reception

We had such a lovely afternoon in Reception investigating tulips. Did you know they originally come from Asia? The children drew pictures with chalk, wrote about tulips and created some lovey artwork using forks.

We also planted some seeds.

Year 5 water resistance investigation

The children made shapes out of plasticine to see which travelled through the water at the quickest rate. They then made paddle boats out of wood and tested them in the paddling pool.

Year 5 learnt about the forces involved in keeping an aeroplane in the air and then they tried and tested different designs. We were all surprised to discover that the paper aeroplane that holds the world record is a cylinder shape.
