We will be thinking about why and how animals camouflage and will find out about some animals and their amazing ability to change.
Take a look at this video of cuttlefish - they are really extraordinary!
We will also be looking at Metamorphosis in animals this week and next as part of our concept of change.
Last week we had fun looking at change with chemistry. Here is a simple but interesting experiment you might like to try at home.
|Year Two children experimenting by blowing into the solution.|
|Year 3&4 children observing reactions.|
|Scratch Club - first week Term 2 2017|
You can also try blowing through a straw into the cabbage water solution. You will notice the solution turns pinkish - you have made a weak acid. CO2 (that you breathe out) and H2O (water) = H2CO3 (carbonic acid).
Some of our year 6 boys are running a 'Scratch Club' at lunchtimes on Wednesdays in B9. Scratch is a free computer programming website - children can design their own games, characters etc. Flynn and Ajay are running this class. I am so impressed with their ideas and teaching ability - they coped so well with over 40 students who turned up last week!
Well done boys - I am impressed by your enthusiasm and willingness to share your knowledge with others.
