Wow- we had a super last afternoon of the half term. We learned all about ratio and proportion and then put our skills to the test to make mocktails. We were given 4 different juices to choose from and had to measure then find the percentage, fraction and then the ratio. We finally got to test our new creations.. Some of us enjoyed and some didn’t.
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!
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!
On Wednesday 13th September, Year 5 and 6 were treated to a day of song and music at Clonter Opera Theatre in Congleton and we all had so much fun!
Our first activity was to make a mini design set- the children could choose for their theme to be either: Year 3000, World War I, Island themed or Winter Wonderland and without any question, all of the Year 6’s chose their theme as World War I (which is very fitting as we are doing World War II as our topic this term!) All of the children did a fabulous job and one of our teams even won the best set design and were presented with a certificate- well done to the winning team
