On Friday afternoon p6.m were learning science. The further we put out our rulers the slower the ruler vibrated and the more you put the ruler inwards the more it vibrated faster. We checked our test from last week about sound; you had to guess what was the loudest out of a plane, a car, a dog, someone talking on a phone and people whispering.

On Tuesday p6m went to the dinner hall to do drama. First we moved all about the dinner hall and when Mr Mc Master said freeze we had to go into a statue like a super hero, lost in the desert, if we were in the royal family and if we were an old person. Then we had to act out a story about an old man called Mr Grim who owned a shop. We all got into groups all the characters were: Mrs Cheer, a customer and talking furniture. Every group acted out and they where all very good. Our favourite part was when Lewis kneeled down pretending to be a chair and when Mrs Cheer (Ryan) wasn't looking Mr Grim (Steven) walked up and slit his throat and Ryan fell over Lewis and tumbled onto the ground and then all the furniture ran out the door screaming aaaaaaahhhhh!

After that we had to frame and put stickers on the 4 that came to us because they were not in or they didn’t get theirs finished. Once we where finished that we had to go round all of the classes and give them their sticker so that they know were their pictures are. We had to video some of the children coming in, looking at the pictures and going out of the dinner hall. We also had to go outside with Mr Cohen to put up the big banner. The big banner is on the ramp outside the main door. Once we had put it up Mr Cohen took a picture of Caroline, Nicole and Charlene.

Last Friday we did Art with Miss Muir because it was her last day with P6S/J. We were marbling with different coloured ink. We got a bit of coloured paper and a tray of water and picked a few coloured inks and put the ink inside the water. Then we swirled the ink around and laid the paper on the water. We then picked up the paper and it was all marbled. Our picture was based on Van Gogh's starry night. We got black paper and drew an outline of a village. We cut out our village and stuck it on our marbling. We then stuck up all of our pictures on the whiteboard and sat with Miss Muir and got our picture taken. It was fun making our pictures.

This video clip shows people tapping the desk and hearing a tapping noise.
We put our head against the table and got our partner to tap the desk with a pencil so we could hear a tapping noise. Then we saw if we could hear the class talking in the background with our heads on the table.
We learned how sound travels through gas, liquids, and solids. Sound travels through solids best because particles are closer together.

This is a video clip of children holding a piece of paper against a comb or a ruler.
All the children done this, we had to go around all of the tables and do the different actives. This is what we had to do.

At this table we had to blow against a piece of paper that was held against a comb or a ruler. We learnt that sound can travel through liquid, solids and gases.
