The Cancellation of all ECAs
Unfortunately, today, Monday 16th March, will be the final day for all ECAs this term. By clearing children from the campus by 3pm for tomorrow, and for the rest of the term, teachers will be able to focus on developing varied on-line learning materials (see section further down). Information about the Term 3 ECAs will be sent to you in due course.
Your support with clearing the campus by 3 pm would be greatly appreciated.
Year 5 Rockets
Last week, Mr Jeremy- one of our Year 5 parents- came into school to help enrich the children’s topic- Space. He did a short presentation on rockets and space exploration for each class before taking them out onto the field to have a go at launching some rockets. Mr Jeremy used the 3D printers to design different nose cones and fins for the rockets which allowed the children to see the impact of different shapes on the flight of the rockets. The children were very excited to take their turn at pressuring and then launching the bottle rockets. Things got very exciting when they switched to the 2 litre bottles, which managed to reach about 100 m. We would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Jeremy for his hard work in preparing this exciting opportunity for the children.
