Future Engineers


Engineers came to our school to teach us all about being engineers. Their names were: Tom, Rachel, Owen and Jane. Later, all 4 engineers came to year 3, 4, 5 and 6 to do an activity. Some people thought the activity was really fun. The activity was that we needed to make a real building made by spaghetti and marshmallows.

When everyone made one, the building that can hold a DVD best, the people that made that building will get an extra water bottle (to keep safe in the sun), and a plastic medal. The engineers also talked about being safe.


Team Building

Last week in PE children focussed on their team building skills. Each team was given a blindfold and children had to rely on their team members to navigate them across the playground safely. Children concentrated on giving clear instructions.








In English children focussed on writing an alternative ending to Little Red Riding Hood. Children used a range of sentence types to hook the reader’s attention. Who saved Red Riding Hood in your story?







In Computing children created their own street art using Microsoft Word. We explored how to safely copy images using the internet. Can you remember why we changed the text wrap of our image? Children chose a brick effect background to create their street art.

How does light travel?

This week in Science children set up an investigation to explore how light travels. Children arranged three pieces of card with holes in to a straight line. Children found that the light went through all three holes, therefore the light travelled in a straight line.






The second investigation which children set up, explored how the distance of a light source impacts the shadow formed. What happens to the shadow when the light source is closer to the object? What is a hypothesis? 






This week our PE focus has been working on our team building skills. Children worked together as a team to play ‘The Floor Is Lava’. The aim of the game was to get across the playground without touching the ground. This game focussed on willingness to trust others and accept support.







In Maths, children have been collecting data for Nestle based on their Smarties. Children presented their data in to a bar chart and a frequency table. What did you find out? Did all the tubes have the same amount of Smarties? Next week children will be emailing the data to Nestle.






Have a great weekend.
