Outdoor Challenges with Years 5 & 6

Years 5 & 6 showed great teamwork in the crate challenge.

They were challenged further – to build bridges for the three Billy Goats Gruff using only spaghetti and wine gums. A tricky task!

Year 6 created a blind-fold challenge course for each other. Their communication skills were really tested.

They also had a challenging scientific task  –  they had to get their egg to travel as far as it could (through the air) and come out unscathed after landing. They had a 100% safety record!

 

Digestion

Years 4 & 6 have been calculating the length of various parts of their digestive systems and replicating them with pieces of string. The total length of each digestive system varied between 6 and 9 metres!

Year 4 investigated the effect of different liquids and the size of food on digestion.

Year 6  have tried to eat with a dry mouth and made their own stomachs!

Thank you to Ms Bunn, from Archbishop Holgate’s School, who came and showed Year 5 a whole digestive system with knitted intestines!

Senses

Year 6 were visited by students from the University of York Science Departments. They learnt all about the body’s senses.

 

Year 1 enjoyed a senses investigation – tasting blindfolded, feeling for a soft fluffy material and using their eyes to read the ruler accurately when measuring.
