Team Endurance Lego 'Into Orbit' Project

We love it when people bring us exciting ideas and Mr Walters has brought us a real cracker! The Lego 'Into Orbit' project is an exciting and stimulating multi-national competition in which children compete to build and program robots to solve real-world scientific and engineering problems. There is also a project that runs alongside this to research and find solutions to these problems using the children's own creativity and problem solving skills. The core skills that this project aims to promote within the children are team work, communication, problem solving, design, engineering and computational thinking / computer programming. If that wasn't awesome enough, the project utilises Lego products (such as Lego 'Mindstorms')  to develop these essential skills!

A huge thank you to Mr Walters for bringing this idea to us, his enthusiasm and for generously devoting his Tuesday afternoons to running the project with us in school.

Animal Habitats

The children in upper school have been working hard to create animal habitats to encourage creatures to make our school grounds their home. We have produced bat boxes, bird boxes and insect habitats using a variety of D&T skills including accurate marking out, drilling, screwing and even burning designs into the wood to make them the highest possible quality. They have done a fantastic job so far. Next steps: add a small solar powered light to the bug boxes to encourage insects into the habitat.

Triathlon Taster

This afternoon our year 5 and 6 classes experienced a PE lesson with a difference.

Mr Whiteman with the help of Mrs Fox and some year 6 helpers created an exciting Triathlon course, complete with bike/scooter circuit and running track. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite have enough time to build and fill a real swimming pool, so a pretend pool had to be constructed.

Well done to all the children who took part, you all made a terrific effort to complete the course.

The Return of the "Eggstronaut"!

Team Endurance worked hard recently to design and build a parachute and landing module for their "Eggstronauts" so that, when released from the school roof, they returned to earth without cracking! Well done to the winning team below for not only keeping their egg intact but for also creating the most efficient parachute and winning the Easter egg prizes.

Bikeability on a beautiful day!

The sun shone on Y5 today as they continued to impress on their L2 Bikeability training.

As you can see, everyone was listening well and working hard, learning the rules of the road.

Keep it up and safe cycling!
