We worked with our parents to design and make a rocket with a door, without using our hands to push it open. Great fun was had by all!

Science Investigation - What is the best material to make a Viking Raincoat?

 

We had to explore a range of materials that could be used to make a water resistant coat for the Vikings as they journey from their Viking homelands to Ireland on their longship.  We had to ensure that we had chosen the best material that the coat could be made from, therefore we had to carry out a fair test to explain our choice.  We decided the best way to test the four materials of nylon, cotton, linen and polyester was to use a water drop to put an equal amount of drop on each material and time how long it would stay on top, before disappearing.  We tested each material three times and used the stopwatch on the ipad to accurately record the time. After some discussion we finally decided that nylon was the best water resistance material as the polyester appear to feel slightly damp.

Vicious Vikings Archaeological Discovery

We were learning about angles, movement and co-ordinates and had great fun using all our knowledge to complete this activity.  We worked in small groups, where we had to transform the probot into a Viking Longhip so that it could travel around Strangford Lough to find the 'Viking Treasures'.  Next we planned our map, using co-ordinates and decided on the location of the treasures, then we made our large map, where we had to use rulers and a metre stick to calculate the distance in 'cm' from one island to the next, whilst inputting the correct angles to make the longship travel the correct way.  Finally,we recorded our instructions to enable other Year 6 archaeologists to enter on a voyage of discovery around Strangford Lough on the longships to find the jewels.  We absolutely loved this challenge, it was a fun way of using our maths.
