Year 3/4 Living and Non Living Things

The students in Years 3 and 4 have continued to work on defining living and non-living things. They have been exploring the life stages of humans and life cycles of plants and animals. We have worked on the life cycles of tomato plants, frogs and butterflies with an emphasis on how particular animals undergo metamorphosis (the transformation or change an organism undergoes).

Year 5/6 Mission to Mars

After taking off from Earth in our rockets, the students investigated some of the challenges humans would face if they were to colonise Mars. They also undertook a design challenge in small groups to make a Lander using limited materials. They tested their landers from a height of one metre to see if their ‘astronauts’ landed safely or not. With their astronauts now on Mars, the last two weeks, have seen the students use Ozobots to simulate Rovers on the surface of Mars. The students used visual coding to create a travel plan which incorporated sequencing, branching and looping.
