It has been National Science Week and we started off carrying out our own research into the one of the world's most successful and now famous Paleontologist (scientist who studies fossils)- Mary Anning. The children used everything that they have learnt to produce a report.
On Wednesday, we started to consider why the Ancient Greeks were so successful and what their impact on our lives today. We learnt about the famous mathematician and scientist Archimedes and his 'Eureka' moment as he sat in his bath. We then investigated water displacement and principles of floating and sinking. To do this we had to use our mathematical learning about mass, volume and capacity and have measured different amounts of cubes and volumes of water. By Friday, we were ready to design and build boats to hold as many cubes as we could.
