Challenge morning! The children were given a challenge this morning and worked very well together to complete it.
‘You have 20 minutes to make a piece of furniture using only the resources provided’. The children were given paper scissors and Cellotape. The children used a range of skills from planning, designing, working collaboratively, thinking, developing resilience and challenge. Take a look at some of the furniture they made from bed, settees, tables and chairs, they’re fab!

We also had a go at our new challenge puzzles some were very challenging !



Magic Materials

In science children were given a challenge to ‘Make a rope that holds as many weights as possible’. They had to find out how materials can be made stronger using only crepe paper and weights. The children were given a set amount of time to investigate and test out ways to make the paper stronger.
Questions they had to consider were:
Will your rope be stronger if you use more pieces of paper?
Will a longer rope be stronger than a shorter rope?
What do you think will happen if you twist the pieces of rope together?

The children investigated all possibilities finding that the shorter and thicker the rope the more weight it held. The children had fun working together testing out their ideas. Have a look at some of our learning below.

First the children used globes and atlases to locate Kenya and identify which continent it was in. We the looked at the physical feature identifying lakes, rivers, mountains, volcanos and animals you would find in Kenya. Take a look at some of our learning below. Enjoy!

In English, class 5 have been learning about writing instructions looking at the features of writing and reading different sets of instructions.  We read the story ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ and thought about how to make, and what would make, a disgusting sandwich.  We planned our own instructions for making a disgusting sandwich and then followed the instructions to create the most disgusting sandwiches you have ever seen.

Take a look at the ingredients we used, the instructions we followed and the sandwiches we created. Would you dare to eat one of our disgusting sandwiches?

They were yummy, really !
