Hurdling Fun 19/06/19
The children had a fun activity day as they competed against each other to complete a series of STEM activities. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) The first challenge was to build a structure using spaghetti and marshmallows that would support a small ball. The second challenge was to design and make a chariot to fit around a remote control robot. The chariot would then race against other chariots. The final challenge was to make a magic video. All work was recorded by the children onto the iPads in the form of an activity book. A big thanks goes to Kitty from Knowsley CLC for organising the activities.
SCIENCE INVESTIGATION (8/05/19)The children made parachutes with different surface areas and then timed how long it would take them to reach the ground from the stage in the hall. Ask them what they discovered.

(Gravity and Air Resistance) Each helicopter had a paper clip attached to the bottom. They observed and released the helicopters from different heights. (Ground, chair and table level) What do you think happened when more paper clips were added to the helicopters?
BRITISH VALUES 29/4/19 : The children had to think carefully about what makes them proud to be British. They worked together to design posters and then shared their ideas with the rest of the class.
