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.

Home Learning
This week we have started studying the Olympic games and are preparing for our official Olympic Opening Ceremony on Monday.  Each class has been researching a country which is taking part in the games and we have been focusing on Lithuania.
The connected learning (and some Literacy) home learning will be to research an Olympic sport and prepare a 3-5 minute oral presentation demonstrating your learning.  All the relevant information can be found here.  Think about the lessons you learned from the last presentation you made to the class.  What did you wish you had done differently?  How do you think you could have improved your presentation?
Literacy
Maths
Can you use logic and your knowledge of number to work out these three numbers?  Email the three answers to me at jela@patana.ac.th.
First
I am a three digit number.
The sum of the first two digits is greater than 6
The difference between the last two digits is equal to 6
The difference between the first two digits is equal to 3
The sum of the first and last digits is less than 8
The sum of the last two digits is equal to 10

Second
I am a three digit number.
The difference between the first and last digits is greater than 2

The product of the last two digits is less than 10

Third

### 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!
