We had a fantastic surprise on Wednesday- a team from Festomane arrived at school, to teach us all about pneumatics (just ask us what it means!). We had great fun using the K’Nex to construct models, and we were able to incorporate our pneumatic designs into our planning.
We’ve been very lucky to have Julie in with us this week, and she has taught us how to make figurines dressed in a traditional Chinese outfit.
In literacy, we have been looking at how to write and follow instructions. We put our knowledge to the test and followed a recipe to make pancakes…they were very successful!
Today Goshawks took part in a construction challenge, consisting of marshmallows and cocktail sticks. The children were in groups of 4/5, and had to create the highest structure they could manage. The winning team was Lola, Grace, Albert and Archie, who built a model of 29cm, well done! The two winners of the best-designed model were Max, Cameron, Harry and Zach’s group, and Niamh, Lily W, Anna and Sofia’s group. Well done to all, and thank you to Mr Rimmer for judging the competition!
