This afternoon, year 5 were given the task to come up with their own learning objective, after they had completed the lesson. The children were given a task. Given a ramp, some pencils, lolly sticks, blu-tac and a marble. The objective was to roll a marble down the ramp, as slowly as possible. The children came up with some really creative ideas and had some brilliant discussions in teams of 4. Well done to Tom, Alice, Hewett and Annya for winning and taking 14 seconds for the marble to get down the ramp. We all had a discussion at the end of the lesson and people discussed a learning objective. Some came up with the idea of "being frustrated," and others "steal ideas from successful groups," which all applied during the afternoon. However when we thought about it, someone came up with, "Understand the impact of friction can have on gravity." A good discussion followed. Well done the scientists of Year 5!
