P6 planned, designed and made some parachutes and tested them out from the climbing frame. We put a hard boiled egg into a plastic cup with the aim of keeping the parachute in the air for as long as possible whilst preventing the egg from cracking on landing.
P6 have been busy this term looking at instructional writing. After looking at samples of instructional writing and analysing the features of the various samples we did some modelled, shared and guided writing with Miss Galloway about how to make a paper plane. Of course before we could write the instructions we had a fun session becoming familiar with how to make paper planes, decorated them and tested them out to see how far they could fly. Following on from that we then independently wrote a set of instructions for how to make a kite. When we had the first draft of our instructions written we took part in some peer assessment and gave feedback to our partners as to how we could improve our instructions further. We took that advice on board and edited/redrafted our instructions before publishing our instructions one final time.
