Why do things float? Apple class (Juniper) tomorrow found out why things float.... Ask them to tell you using the floating and sinking link in an earlier app...

We finally got a clear day and made the most of it by walking up to Shaftesbury to finish our sketching that we had previously hoped to do up a foggy Win Green! Mr Wahab will also post some of his pictures. As you can see the views were amazing and we hope they will have inspired the children to produce some fantastic art.
Upthrust - The children discovered a new force today that they had never heard of, the force of Upthrust. They found that items weigh less in water because of it and even less in golden syrup! Their challenge is to tell me tomorrow why is Upthrust greater in Golden Syrup than in water...?
Fun with Decimals - the children had been finding understanding exactly what decimals were a bit difficult so we got the multi link cubes out and explored what 0.1 looked like, 0.6 etc etc. We then looked at money and how 10p is also 0.1 of a pound! The children then went even further to look at how 0.1 is the equivalent of 1/10 and 0.5 is the same as 1/2. Top maths Mr Preston's group!
