Red Nose Day
Children in Year 6 were master bakers for Red Nose Day; baking 100 cupcakes for charity. They were supervised by our very own baking queen, Mrs Morgan, who worked hard to find donations for the ingredients. As always, our super parents supported the children by purchasing the delicious cakes and helping to raise £100!
Federation Maths Morning
Children across our Federation all took part in a marvellous maths morning! Class 2 and 3 began the day with a treasure hunt, hunting for maths puzzles.
When they had collected a variety of puzzles, the children started to work in groups to solve the problems. They used a huge range of skills and equipment in order to solve these and then even devised their own puzzles for each other to work out. The amount of reasoning and explaining in maths was absolutely fantastic and the children persevered in order to complete their challenges. We had great fun!
Roald Dahl Day
This week has been 'Dahlishious' and Class 3 have been celebrating 100 years of the fabulous Roald Dahl and his wonderful stories and characters. We have read books, described characters, written in the style of Mr. Dahl himself and recited revolting rhymes. On the actual day, we designed and constructed perfect parachutes in order to transport James' not so giant peach safely to the ground!
Class 3 spent an exciting day at Longborough School building, programming and testing robots. We learnt how to work in teams to complete a variety of challenges.
After building the first robot the children reflected on the first set of challenges that they encountered and how to improve. Here are some of the responses from the children: "I learnt that teamwork is better than being on your own because you can all help and do different things." "We put the wheels the wrong way around because we missed a step so we had to go back and check." "Listening carefully to instructions means you know exactly what to do when it's tricky."
When the robot was built, the children then had to program them to complete a series of challenges. Each different change meant the children had to redesign and reprogram their robots. The challenges included getting six balls into a goal, pushing bricks over a line and knocking blocks off a box.
The children worked incredibly hard, persevering to create amazing robots.
