As part of our ‘We are Scientists’ focus, P5a have been investigating how sound travels through solids, liquids and gases. As part of our investigation we created string telephones and tested them against a number of different success criteria. Here are some photos.
As part of our ‘We are Scientists’ focus, P5a have been learning about natural disasters, specifically earthquakes. The class made models of buildings to test how well structures stand up under the stress of an earthquake (jelly wobbling). It was very enjoyable task and the pupils worked very well to create structures alongside a success criteria.
