Science in Oak

Today in our science lessons, we have been learning that light always travels in straight lines. We conducted an experiment to prove this fact. We shone a torch through holes in card to see if the light could travel through. We found out that the light only travelled through when the holes were lined up as when they were not, the light could not travel through.

Anderson Shelters

(7 images)

Today in Oak class, we have continued our learning about the second world war and designed and made our very own model Anderson shelters. We first investigated the shape of structures to find out which would make the strongest shelter before designing then making our shelters. We thought about how we could strengthen our structures as well as how to make ‘flaps’ to make it easy to stick extra parts on. We will continue to make furniture and decorate our shelters next week. We will also test them to make sure they fit the design brief of being able to house 6 Lego people and take the weight of our class novel (Letters from the lighthouse which is all about World War 2 evacuees!)!
