In our topic on Marvellous Mixtures we have been learning about separating, dissolving, evaporating and distilling. We put all our knowledge to use today when we tried to purify rock salt. We first added water to the rock salt mixture. We stirred it to help the salt dissolve quicker. Then we put if through filter paper. In the beaker we had a salt water solution and in the paper we had sand. The we heated the solution so the water would evaporate and we would be left with the pure salt.
In our topic ‘Sewing Bee’ we produced a product from scratch. First we investigated different prototypes to see how we would make our phone case. Then we designed them. Next we had to cut the felt to a pattern. The we blanket stitched the sides. After that we made our design out of felt and attached using strong glue.
We have been reading The Highway Man poem by Alfred Noyes. We went into the Interactive Room to look at different versions that it had been changed into. We are now using this as a stimulus for our own animations.
We visited Manchester Arena to take part in the Young Voices Concert. We enjoyed singing along with 8000 other children and also famous people like Tony Hadley and The Shires.
