As part of our Science topic of 'Working Scientifically', Year 5 have been investigating the different types of fingerprints and examining their own! They discovered that there are three main types of finger prints, one of which is extremely rare! All the children took part in stamping their own fingers to see which category they belonged to - some even landed in the rare category!
This week, the children in Willow spent time looking at a range of holiday brochures. They identified the key elements of them in preparation for writing and creating their own.

This week in science, the children were working scientifically to investigate which liquids cause most damage to teeth. The children used egg shells to replicate the enamel on teeth and liquids such as cola, coffee, fruit juice and water. After leaving the egg shells in the liquids for several days, the children took them out and observed them for changes in appearance, texture and smell.
