This afternoon we have collected and interpreted data.
We wanted to find out where the best place in school was for different types of habitats for animals. We used a data collector and measured the temperature of different rooms including: the classroom, fridge, outdoors, dining hall and greenhouse. We found out that the temperature in the classroom would be a suitable temperature for reptiles, as reptiles live in a habitat of 70-85 degrees fahrenheit.
What temperate do you predict the classroom to be?
This half term, we are focusing on basketball. Today we have learnt different types of passing: chest pass and bounce pass (these are two common types of pass). When practicing our passing, we thought about different ways we can travel. Passing is important to practice in basketball as it helps to score easy points. Practicing different types of passing also helped to develop our team working and communication skills.
Today some year 5’s and 6’s from Class 8 had the chance to visit Harper Adams University. Our day was filled with lots of fun and interactive activities which Harper Adams students led, for example: we have been learning about food miles and how far our food travels from, autonomous farming machines and the importance of bees and insects.
Did you know strawberries come from America in the Winter?
Today in P.E we have been learning about ball control. Our focus today was to get past defenders, we learnt how to shield a ball in order to get past the defenders and score. We also learnt how to pass a ball into space and run around the defender to shoot.
This afternoon class 8 have been using Data Harvest to gather data on humidity and light, we measured the humidity and light in the outside area as well as the green house to see the difference. We talked about how sunlight would effect humidity, and the children have learnt that the sunlight will cause a rise in temperature which will cause the water to evaporate and cause more humidity.
Do you think plants will grow better with more or less humidity?
