Ms Sue Hill Weekly Update 1.4.2016

ENG

Dear Parents,


If you were walking down our KS2 corridor yesterday then you may have heard the screams and wondered what was happening! Nothing to worry about, thankfully, as the screams came from Year 5 children who had set themselves a very ambitious challenge to produce a Rube Goldberg machine. A Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption that aims to perform a simple task in a very complicated way! An unbelievable amount of team work and perseverance was evident as the children were determined to start the machine with a marble and, after a complicated journey, set off a blender to make a smoothie. The excitement rose as the two machines were close to achieving their aim; was Mr Adams’ class or Ms. Tong’s going to be the first to complete the challenge?
You can see one of the Rube Goldberg machines in action in the video below:

Year 5 Science

Our super scientists in F3 have also been challenging themselves. Their aim was to produce a rocket which could blast off into the air. In assembly they showed us how they had tried to use bicarbonate and soda mixed with vinegar then mint sweets mixed with cola but neither of these was successful. Their final attempt involved sending a balloon along a piece of string which worked well. Then, our super secondary scientists showed us how other powerful chemical reactions can create an impressive blast off!

Shared Learning

It was lovely to see so many parents in school on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Children were so proud to show evidence of their learning with mums and dads and talk about their best pieces of work and progress from the start of the year.

Residential Trips

Year 4 children in Ms. Elliott’s class shared their outdoor learning at our KS2 assembly today. Their adventures at Ba Vi were really amazing: planting, catching fish and finding out how tea is harvested and dried. Thank you for sharing your secrets with us, Year 4!
