Welcome to P5/6 - Mrs Johnston
Take a look at our fantastic displays in the corridor outside our classroom.
We have been very busy writing alien character descriptions, alien adventure stories and newspaper articles about the Apollo 11 moon landing.
We are currently reading 'George's secret key to the universe' for our class novel.
Numeracy - Problem Solving
Straw Shooter Rocket
We put some plasticine into the opening of an empty carbonated drink bottle. We moulded it around the edges to make a good seal, then made a small hole and pushed a narrow straw into the hole. We had to make sure there were no gaps around the plasticine!
Then we took a wider straw, pinched together one end and stuck some tape over it to make it airtight. Then we slid the wider straw over the narrow straw. Finally we pointed the shooter away from people and gave the bottle a hard squeeze!
