In history this week, Willow class used the atlases to locate countries in Central America. This area referred to as Mesoamerica, is where the ancient Maya used to live. 

In science on Friday we were looking at the affects of friction. We used simple experiments such as the brakes on a bicycle and a box of matches to explain how friction works and its uses. I also challenged them to pull two books apart – explaining that the friction was the stronger force here because every page over each other meant there was a lot of friction (no one, not even me, could pull them apart)!
