Year 2 had a great time designing and making robots to support their design and technology learning.
To complete the project the children raced their robots and observed which traveled the fastest and furthest.
Well done year 2!
This week Year 5 have been busy designing and making our own rockets.
We have all designed and made a Carbon Dioxide Powered Rocket.
Some of us have also made water powered rockets.
We can’t wait to launch them!
On Thursday, Year 5 visited Cineworld Sheffield to see Apollo 11 – the story of mankind’s first trip to the moon.
It was amazing to see the launch of the rocket as we begin to design our own.
We gave it a big thumbs up, especially the question and answer session with the UK Space Agency.
Thank you Into Film 2019.
Once back at school, we even tried some astronaut food!
To round off our learning all about light and shadows, we put on a show today using lollipop sticks, a torch and Mr Woodhouse! We know that opaque objects make the best shadows by blocking the light so created characters using black cardboard. Our theatre was not the most professional looking but it certainly did the job, with extra thanks to Mr Woodhouse and his expert torch holding!
Well done year 3, it is brilliant to see you apply what you have learnt this half term!
Year 4 have designed and created their own Roman shields (scutums). We looked at pictures of Roman scutums to help us create authentic Roman shield designs. Furthermore, we reinforced our shields using PVA glue and scrap paper to make them strong enough for battle!
As part of our ‘Ancient Greece’ topic, Year 5 looked at the different types of food that the Ancient Greeks would have eaten. The foods they tried were: Green & Black olives, Greek Yoghurt, Pita Bread, Feta Cheese, Halloumi Cheese and Tzatziki. They carried out a food tasting of each food, looking at texture, aroma, taste, appearance and giving each a rating out of 5 stars.
The most popular Greek Food was Halloumi cheese, with lots comparing the taste to that of cheddar string cheese.
Year 5 will use their food tasting notes to help them write a ‘Greek Food Experience’ food critique.
