5B thought about how information can travel along a network.
The ‘packets’ of information need to be addressed correctly before they can travel along the network. We modelled how IP addresses communicate with each other when sending this information. To reach the destination, the packets visit different routers along the way before being assembled again.
We have started looking at non-chronological reports. Linking to our topic, we have focused on sea creatures. We identified the common features of a non-chronological report and began our own research of interesting facts about an aquatic animal.
5B had a wonderful time at the Creekside Discovery centre!
After finding out a little about the history and uses of Deptford Creek, we donned our waders and headed off down the river. It was low tide so we were able to walk on the river bed and explore upstream. We had time to race some rubber ducks to see how fast the current was and to do a spot of fishing, catching some shrimp and even some baby gobi.
We had a chance to explore some different artifacts connected to the creek, linked to its history of industry. We looked at historical artefacts belonging to blacksmiths, the pottery trade and even the nearby railway!
