Key Stage 2 were treated to an exciting assembly all about Congleton Junior Orchestra. We all took part in a game of Name that tune’ where we all were able to say what song each was and the instructors were ever so impressed by our musical knowledge.
There will be an open day from 10-12pm at Trinity Church on June 16th, where there will be games and opportunities to try out the different instruments.
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!
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.
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.
Last week we went to Jodrell Bank as part of our topic Space. We researched information about the planets in our solar system and other galaxies. The Lovell Telescope is used to search galaxies for other life forms. It is not a telescope that you look through because it uses radio waves. We took part in workshop about keeping healthy in space as well as trying out equipment the astronauts use on the space station. Next we learnt how rockets are propelled in to space using fuel. Our second workshop was about the Mars Rover mission. We worked in teams to make a Mars Rover landing craft. It had to protect its cargo when landing on Mars. To do this our cargo was an EGG. Several of the craft didn’t protect the egg enough and so there was plenty of yolk! However, one team was successful. Maybe these will be spacecraft engineers in the future.
Clonter opera visited us to teach us about designing scenery. We made light boxes based on the them of space exploration. After this we constructed our stage designs in the hall. We can’t wait for our next visit working with Clonter.
On Thursday we had our first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) club. We had lots of fun investigating magnetism! We drew race tracks and timed each other to see how fast we could get a paper clip round our tracks. We can’t wait to see what investigation we do next week!
