Making parachutes, working out and touch typing!

This week in Science we investigated air resistance by creating our own parachute and ensuring we test different variables such as shape, size, length of string or drop height. We enjoyed creating different types of parachutes and testing which would make the perfect parachute for the Skydiving company!

In Walnut this week. we continued our fitness challenge by trying to beat our own personal record of how many high intensity exercises we got do in 60 seconds. We worked so hard and pushed ourselves!

After finishing our Mary Anning biographies, we practised our touch typing skills on the laptops to publish our drafts. We learnt about how to try to use both hands to type by practising on 2type on Purplemash then we learnt about how to format our text in Word.
