This week, the children in STEM Club became engineers! They had a challenge to see how tall they could make a structure using only dried spaghetti and marshmallows. We had great fun working out how to make our structures stronger and decided that Mia’s structure was the best!
Class 2 had a fantastic time working with their Mums, Dads, brothers and Nans on their first CREST Award challenge this morning. They were testing materials to see which one kept the mouse warm! We had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came in and joinedthe fun!
Class 2 have started their quest to achieving their very own CREST Award. They have completed 4 challenges today and have 4 to go! Today’s challenges included making bubbles of different sizes, shape and colour, washing dirty laundry and fixing a broken umbrella using waterproof material. They can’t wait to see what Cosmic, Gem and Aunt Stella want them to investigate next!
Wow what a fantastic day Year 6 (as well as some superstars from Year 5) have had!
We had a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) themed day where the children became engineers to code and program the drones to complete 3 challenges. Because the children all behaved so well, they were given an air show challenge , where they were able to do code their drones to do various flips and turns.
Days like today really show how much resilience our children have as they kept on trying and learnt from their mistakes.
What a wonderful day we had at Quinta Forest yesterday. We were kept busy all day stream dipping, den building, playing games, scavenging and lighting fires. I think that both classes will agree that the highlight was toasting marshmallows on the campfire. Everyone came home with muddy feet (some muddier than others) and wet socks. A sign of a good day in my book!!
Class 2 have had a great time at The Museum of Science and Industry today. We took part in lots of Science investigations, learnt about robots and discovered aircraft, old and new! We were SUPER excited when we saw a Red Arrow, as we have been learning about these in our topic!! Well done boys and girls, you made Marlfields very proud!!
Wow, what a way to start Science Week! Mrs Abraham introduced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) through some exciting investigations. We found out all about the fabulous activities and challenges that will be taking place over the week. We will be having a Celebration Assembly on Friday at 2.30pm where members of each class will explain what they have taken part in and learnt over the week. Please come and join us in assembly on Friday, to find out what we have all done!
We had a super day at Clonter Opera making costumes for characters in the design workshop and then performing our Space adventure on the stage. We had to compose the music and songs we used as well as having sound, lighting and stage engineers. A great time was had by all and a big thank you to all the people at Clonter Opera who helped us to give a brilliant performance.
