Future World Changers!
Welcome! We are the future world changers.
Hello parents and welcome again. My name is Ivy and I am from the UK. It is my second year teaching at EMS. As well as teaching your children, I am very much looking forward to learning from them. Please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together, we will change the world for the better!
We are teachers.
we are are learners.
We are motivators.
We are listeners and we ask questions.
It doesn’t matter what we are now, we know we are changing the world for the better... one step at a time.
All In The Name Of Science
This was all in the name of science- I promise🤭
We were looking at reversible and irreversible changes. We also looked at dissolving. We found that when the ice cream was heated, it changed from solid to liquid. It then because the solvant. The gummy bears were insoluble because they didn't dissolve in the solvant.
The liquid ice cream could be frozen into solid again, so this is a reversible change. We learned so much in this science lesson.
Ok... you don't believe us do you?
A Job Well Done!
6.8 presented their assembly. They were absolutely fabulous (proud teacher moment)!
When Bob the Alien landed at EMS, he was hungry and demanded that we make him soup. The ingredients of the soup was as follows: a spoon full of rice, a spoon full of sand, a spoon full of sugar. 5 paper clips, food colouring, then mixed with water.
When Bob took a sop, he spat it out, accusing we had put too much sugar in the soup. He demanded that we separate all the ingredients and start all over again. Arrrrrgggghhh!
608 rose to the challenge and separated all the ingredients, using the following processes-
Magnet for the paper clips
Sieving for the rice
Filtering for the sand.
Now can you guess how we separated the sugar from the water?
So for dinner, you decide to make rice and beans. You mix 3 cups of rice and 3 cups of beans. You read the recipe again and it says "1 cup of rice ans 3 cups of beans". Opps!
How do you remove the rice?
By sieving of course.
But with any sieve? Oh no. Fear not, 6-8 has the answer.
6-8 made their own sieve to separate 2 solids. Some had to make a sieve to separate sand and talcum powder- now that's a challenge. A challenge they embraced and conquered.
In English, we've been reading the book Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. It is about Michael, a boy from England who goes on a once in a lifetime sailing trip around the world with his mother and father and the family sheep dog. He falls off his yacht and is washed off on an island inhabited by gibbons and orangutans. Michael meets the only human on the island, Kenseke, a Japanese man who served in the Second World War.
In groups, children created a presentation on a theme from the book. Guess the theme of each project.
Angry Birds = Happy Children
We don't know who had more fun- the children or the teachers!
Adam The Egg
Adam the egg is jumping out of a plane. He has some lovely friends who want to catch him but they are a little slow. Adam needs a parachute that will let him stay in the air as long as possible.
As part of our investigation on air resistance and gravity, we made our own parachute to find out which parachute (large or small/ which material) would stay in the air the longest.
Goal setting T-Shirt Day
Let the Science Begin!
6.8 have been learning about all the parts needed for a scientific investigation. In the following task, they were given the materials and the procedures and the had to come up with their own question and form a hypothesis. Then they had to carry out the experiment then write a conclusion.
First week of the new term
We've been busy bees.
As part of our goal setting, class 6.8 shared with each other the career they hope for in the future. We have doctors, artists, singers, lawyers, teachers, surgeons, footballers, scientists, gymnasts, engineers, builders and architects. Wow, the future world looks great!
Miss Ivy believes that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Our classroom has an atmosphere where students do not just meet their full potential, but always strive to be better.
To continue to be better, 6.8 know they must have a Growth Mindset.
We have created a Growth Mindset board where the class wrote their own positive quotes. They truly are positively creative.
To describe ourselves, we created acrostic poems using positive adjectives
