Year 1 cooking rocket biscuits

This week we have enjoyed cooking and decorating rocket biscuits to finish our Space topic. We have some keen cooks in 1AD and we all enjoyed ourselves whilst cooking. We followed a recipe and set of instructions and were very good at measuring precise amounts with the scales.

Once we had cooked our biscuits we were able to decorate them.

3JR visit Banbury Library

Maddison, Mei-Lan and Tise are in the process of writing a report of 3JR’s trip to Banbury Library but in the meantime, here are some photographs to enjoy.

Did you know that children who are members of the library are allowed to borrow up to 20 books for a period of 3 weeks from any library in Oxfordshire?

You can complete an application online if you are not yet a member: https://www.libcat.oxfordshire.gov.uk/06_SelfRegistration/06_001_YourDetails.aspx

How are craters on the moon formed?

Year 5 have been investigating which meteor would create the biggest crater on the moon.

We used cat litter to imitate the moon’s surface and we made meteors of different sizes, out of Blu-Tack.

To keep the test fair we kept the same amount of cat litter and the same material for the meteor. Also, we dropped the meteor at the same height each time.IMG_0402 The only variable we changed was the weight of each meteor, we weighed each meteor on weighing scales.

Our class predicted that the small meteor’s would create a deeper crater and the larger meteors would make a wider crater.

After reading our results, we can conclude that the greater the mass the deeper the impact. We think this is because of the pull of gravity (even on the moon!)
