Our chicks are having lots of fun and have had lots of
visitors through school. They are getting bigger every day.🐣

Maths through Science: We carried out a super investigation where we tested how different toy cars would move across various materials on our ramps. We estimated the cars that would travel the furthest distance and those that would travel the shortest distance. We also discussed why some cars traveled further and easier on different ramps. Some cars had lines on the wheels and some of the ramps had wool covering the surface. Aiden was our super investigator of the day. He said 'the car with the lines will travel slower because the wool from the ramp will get stuck in the wheels and slow it down.'' He was right! Clever boy!

We worked together to make a friendship poster for Friendship Week. We had lots of nice things to say about each other.
