Dragonese Day finished with a brilliant time in the hall where our Vikings and Dragons performed some songs and shared some facts with their parents. You were great!

Here are the winning flag designs! Well done to the winning Vikings and Dragons!

Dragonese Day - Our first job was to use our knowledge of symmetry to design a flag for Hiccup and Toothless to use in the Initiation ceremony. We worked in pairs to investigate polgons and quadrilaterals and whether they have lines of symmetry. Then we used shapes, pegs or elastic bands to make patterns with various lines of symmetry before designing our own...

30.1.17 All about Sound

In our Science, we have been investigating Sound!

We have discovered that:

  • Sound is caused by vibrations
  • Vibrating objects make sound. The sound is passed to our ears and this is how we hear.
  • Sounds get louder when they vibrate harder
  • Pitch is how low or high a note is. The shorter the vibrating object, the higher the pitch.

Can you find out any fascinating facts about sound to tell the class using the website links below?

These super learners have their handwriting pens and are working hard to keep up their good work!
