Literacy – Innovating Macbeth

We have written our own versions of Macbeth. We changed the characters and the setting, thinking about the places where we could add our own detail to the version of the story that we have been using in class.

Using powerful verbs and adjectives we have thought about how we can bring the action of the story to life for our readers.

Science – Non- Newtonian liquids

We’ve looked at the properties of liquids, but the scientist Issac Newton noticed that some liquids don’t follow the same rules and he named them non-Newtonian liquids.

A mixture of cornflour and water is a type of non-Newtonian liquid. When is it under pressure or agitated it can become solid. When you leave it alone it then becomes a liquid again.

What other liquids can you think of that behave in a strange way?
