Looking back at the first half term!

Hi 5D, hope you are enjoying the holidays!
I’d like you to think back over the last 7 weeks, and tell everyone:
One thing you learnt and one thing you really enjoyed.
I look forward to reading your comments!

All about the brain!

Good afternoon 5D!

Your mission this afternoon is to find the answers to the questions you thought of this morning – and more!

Use Google or Bing to find the answers. You could start by typing in something like “Brain facts for kids”.  

Remember to use key words to help with your search. If you want to find out how much the brain weighs, try typing in “brain weight” or even “average brain weight”. Remember to check how reliable the page you have found is. For example, “Wiki Answers” can be written by anyone – think about how reliable the answer seems and check with another page to see if the answers match.

Useful websites are:

When you have found your answers, write the facts you have found out in your jotter. Also add interesting facts to this Wallwisher! http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/thebrain
