In English today we made persuasive posters to encourage people to part with their hard earned cash in order to buy our perfect paper planes. The children came up with some fantastic ideas, remembering many persuasive slogans and ideas from adverts which have caught their eyes! Take a look below at some of their work in progress.
This afternoon we got down to the real business. The children worked together, using all the learning which they have been doing this week, to decide what investigation they were going to carry out with their planes. After much discussion they settled on...
"Which of the plane designs will fly the furthest?"
We had a long discussion about fair testing and established that unfortunately because the plane makers were all different AND the plane throwers were all going to be different AND there were 5 different plane designs, we were not able to change just one thing, therefore this was not going to be an easy test to make fair. We decided to do the best we could, as you will see tomorrow in our results!!
Off we all trundled to the runway (hall) landing lights lit (coloured cones) cockpits manned (arms poised) and watched our creations jet off into the distance (sort of!)
Take a look below at our efforts!
