Science Day

On Science Day we enjoyed completing an investigation about paper aeroplanes and exploring plant habitats around the world. We made aeroplanes from card and paper to explore which material would make the best aeroplane. Once outside, we measured the distance each plane travelled in metres. To ensure a fair test, we used the same size of material, made the same type of aeroplane and started in the same place. In the afternoon we read the book ‘Hug Me’ by Simona Ciraolo and considered the habitat of a cactus. We imagined what would happen if a cactus was placed in a different environment and wrote a diary entry in role, explaining why the habitat would not be right. This engaging day allowed us to apply our scientific skills and develop our scientific thinking.
