Rise and shine everyone, we are edging closer and closer to the weekend 🙂

Maths: Today, we will be taking what we have learned through the  week to help us solve one step problems. https://vimeo.com/425605040

Literacy: Writing focus: Using colons and semi-colons https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/writing-focus-using-colons-and-semi-colons

In this lesson, you are going to be using colons and semi-colons.

Experiment time: Paper Hovercraft http://www.sciencefun.org/kidszone/experiments/paper-hovercrafts/

The Science behind this experiment:

The pocket under the hovercraft traps air and create a zone of high pressure. Further, the air moving over the craft has lower pressure. This difference creates lift and gets rid of the friction that normally holds the paper in place on the table. Without friction holding it back, a little breath is all it takes to get the hovercraft speeding on its way!

Remember to take photos/videos and send them in to us, you could even test this idea with different materials such as: newspaper, cardboard, aluminum foil) or different sizes to test which ones drive the straightest, go the fastest, or take the most breath to get moving!

PE: Yesterday was hard work, more so for me 🙂  but we are going to keep going with another session from Joe Wicks. https://classroom.thenational.academy/pe/pe-with-joe-or-11th-june
