### Bring, Bake Buy - in Green!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the parents, children and staff who donated baking, books, stationary and toys to the Y6 Bring, Buy and Bake Sale.

I don't know yet how much we raised but given the huge crowds of children around the cake stall, I think we did very well. I will let you know the total amount raised as soon as possible.

### Songkran!!!!

WOW!!!!

If Songkran is anywhere near as much fun as Splash Day, this is going to be a fantastic holiday! We all had a brilliant time turning the side field into a mud pit but Hugo had a particularly successful afternoon as he got to dump me in the Dunk Tank!

**Science**

We have been investigating ways to plan a fair test by considering all the possible variables that can affect the outcome of an investigation. As part of this, we studied the effect of the distance of an object from a light source on the length of it's shadow.

We then studied the effect of the size of a parachute on the speed at which it falls. Each child designed their own parachute and had a great (and very educational) time throwing them from the third floor of our building to study how they fell. This led to great insight and discussion about whether the parachute or the egg cup was the most important feature. We considered the reasons why this wasn't a fair test and what controls we could put into place for future investigation.

Altogether - great fun and lots of learning!
