We have been finding out about the Egyptian Gods.Their exotic headgear shows their status.

We are learning how to use headings and sub-headings in our non-fiction writing. First step , sort the information into categories .Working in a group helps!

In science we learnt how to use a Newton meter to measure force.

Then we looked for a way to move a tub,keeping the force used the same each time, so the test will be fair.

It was great fun investigating how far the tub moved on different surfaces!
