Welcome to Bentinck Primary & Nursery School. Together we make a difference. We Start back to school on Wednesday 20th April 2022

Class 1

In Class 1 we thought about outer space and whether we would make good astronauts! In space astronauts have to do very tricky things wearing big space gloves so that they can fix things on their spaceship or on the International Space Station. (ISS)

To test our 'Astronaut skills' we tried to do different tasks without gloves on and then with gloves on. We timed the activities to test which took longer.

The Tasks

We had to make a pattern using pegs and a board, thread 15 beads on a string and build a tower with 10 Lego blocks. It was tricky!

Tricky Tasks wearing 'space gloves'!

Our Results

Here are some of our results. These show that the most difficult task was threading beads. This was really difficult with big gloves on!

What plants need to grow healthily

We have also been testing what plants need to grow healthily and have made a film about our experiment. We hope you enjoy it!
