In Science club this week to link with ‘Switch off fortnight’ the children were given a challenge. The challenge was to make a circuit and then create a switch using household materials. The children used tinfoil, paper clips, split pins and card to do this. They all did a fantastic job and had fun too!
Yesterday was a very emotional day of goodbyes. I’ve had the pleasure of watching your children grow and flourish over the past two years (some even less) they are lovely children who all have the potential for achieving great things.
On Thursday 14th June, Year six participated in a safety awareness where we were taught about why we should wear our helmet, the green cross code,importance of wearing a seatbelt, dangers of playing in the street and when you’re in a car not to listen to music without head phones because it may distract the driver.We thank Joanne from the Cheshire Fire Service for coming to our school.
For the last couple of weeks, Year 6 have been taking part in rugby with Dan Robinson from Congleton Rugbys Club. We have been learning skills such as passing and scoring tries. We all really enjoyed it and we can’t wait for next week!
This morning, my class (class 6) took part in assembling a robot with Karol Langer (a robot designer). We all enjoyed it and we were all grateful that we received the opportunity
To start with, we were divided into groups of three. My group was me Lily and Ella-Everyone worked together and created a working moving robot. It was very fun.
First, we used the motors (like the legs) to construct a stable base. My group used connectors pins and beams (part of the set) with the motors so it looked amazing.
After this, we added the controller (like the brain) and the sensor (it made the robot turn away from obstacles) the machine would work. The final step is to build the robot is to decorate it. My group and several others added wings.
Finally, we tested them out and had a race. Some of us had to adjust a couple of things like the direction of the sensor.
