We visited the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in Lowestoft and we got to try on their uniform and ask them questions about the work that they do. We went to look at a lighthouse and even got to act like pirates with some cannons.
Sarah visited us and showed us how to put her boat together. Sarah took the boat apart and we had to help her re-build it. We learnt the names of the parts of her boat and even sat in it for a ride.
Elm Class investigated which materials float and which materials sink. We had wood, plastic, metal, paper, card and glass with a bowl of water on each table. After looking at the materials, we made our own predictions. We then dropped them one by one into the water to see if they would float or if they would sink. We recorded our results on a chart for our topic books and wrote a comment on what we discovered.
