Science, Maths and Engineering Week

The children enjoyed building and testing bridges from lolly sticks on Monday morning with Mr Hallam and Mrs Cross.

On Monday afternoon they enjoyed a visit from Mr Scarborough who spoke to the whole school about F1 cars.

As part of SME week the children took part in a whole school challenge, to build a tree from only 4 A4 sheets of paper and scissors-no glue or sticky tape!

On Tuesday afternoon we welcomed SETPOINT who ran a workshop called 'moondust on my socks'. It began with a story about an aliens journey into space. The children then made a sliding picture of a rocket setting off into space, then later wrote a space story inside. As part of this workshop the children also built circuits and used coding to communicate to each other.

Mrs Hansen also came into school on Tuesday to talk to the children about a new material which can be used to build almost anything. The children tested the strength of these 'honeycomb blocks' by standing on them and were surprised that plastic could be so strong.
