Robins were extremely impressed with Isla’s video log on using her new electronics kit. She demonstrated her knowledge learnt on electrical circuits and has shown confidence in speaking aloud. Well done ISLA!
P.S Another shout out to our Robins football team! Well done!!!
After the Romans invaded Britain, it was generally peaceful and prosperous and many Britons actually welcomed life under the Romans as they offered protection against other tribes and they could join the army. Most Celtic tribes had surrendered but the Iceni Tribe were allowed to remain – under the rule of King Prasutagus and Queen Boudicca.
Today, Robins learnt about Boudicca and imagined how Boudicca felt when Marcus told her the Romans would be seizing all her land and turning her out of her house.
They also had a go at reading a script and performing it. Below is a glimpse of them practising the reading of the script.
In science this week the children have been learning about diluting and dissolving.
Dissolving is a process in which a substance known as the ‘solute’ (e.g sugar) dissolves in another substance known as the ‘solvent’ (e.g water). The solute is completely broken down from larger molecules into smaller molecules after contact with the solvent.
We tested out whether a solid was soluble or insoluble by mixing it with water. Soluble solids included sugar and coffee granules. Insoluble solids included sand and a paperclip!
For diluting, we carried out an experiment to investigate how adding water affects the taste of squash.
