Polar Explorers!

This week the whole school have become polar explorers for STEAM Week.

Miss Thompson and Miss Hopkins organised activities to help us learn about the Arctic and support the polar explorers in their expedition.

It has been a really successful week and a great end to this half term!

The children have enjoyed being polar explorers and it has given them lots of motivation for future work!

Here are some photos of what the whole school got up too!

Learning about levers

On Monday the 20th of November, children from year 5 and 6 were chosen to go to Lampton School and learn more about maths and physics. The children chosen were: Shlock, Ridwaan, Shanaia and me. Teachers also came as well. They were Mr Tibble, Mr Romero and Barbara Moses drove us there.We had fun on the minibusπŸ‘πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

When we arrived , we had to check in at the office . Our first activity of the day was a word search about maths and physics and then we had to sort the numbers into the Venn diagram so it all totals to the same number (it was very challengingπŸ˜… ). The next part was about push and pull ( forces). We discussed about how many forces there are in the world . 😍😎🌍

Our second activity was to balance discs on a pivot, that was fun. When we were doing the activity we worked with different schools and that was fun. πŸ˜€πŸ‘The teachers got involved as well. They even said it was challenging for them πŸ˜€πŸ‘

When it was 3 o’clock , it was time to go back to school everyone had great fun though and it was amazing learning and working with different people . πŸ˜πŸ“š

Kingsley Academy Maths Challenge!

Today some of us in Year 5 went to the mind blowing, creative Kingsley Academy Maths Challenge.

We were put into groups, and were competing against each other. Our groups were called ‘Einstein’ and ‘Newton

What I really enjoyed was when we ran around finding the answers to the questions called the treasure hunt. – Nilab

It was really fun doing all the events. – Giya

We ate delicious biscuits and crisps. – Abdur

The atmosphere in Kingsley Academy was amazing, and I enjoyed all the maths challenges they gave us. – Shobhit

It was really fun because they let us look around the school too. – Gurraj

My experience in Kingsley Academy was very challenging because as soon as I saw the letter than I had been picked to go, I got really scared. But when I went there I realised it wasn’t a test, and instead we did lots of fun challenges that I really liked. – Joey

In Kingsley Academy I loved the challenges. My favourite one was making a plus sign out of triangles. – Isa

In Kingsley Academy one of the challenges was putting different shapes to make an animal or person, and I really enjoyed it. – Siarl

Everyone did really well, and we had a great time!
