Today we were printing Islamic motifs and we used plasticise to make a shape and dip it into the inky sponge. Then we put it on the paper. It was a lot of fun. After we done experimenting we chose our best design and printed it on coloured paper. At the end it turned out good.

We went to Lampton Secondary School to take part in a Christmas physics masterclass. Through a Christmas themed activity we worked with other schools to make different electrical circuits.
“I liked how we got to play with real circuits and a big battery” – Jonavon
” I liked the app we used on the laptops” – Luke
“We met children from other schools” – Axel
“I enjoyed working with the other children. I even made a new friend” – Gracie-Belle
” I liked how we made a circuit together. I wouldn’t of been able to make it by myself” Adrian
We would love to go again!

On Friday 16th November, a group of us went to Kingsley Academy to participate in a maths challenge. There were nine of us: Paulo, Diluc, Kamila, Sahra, Kai,Ben,Danny, Adam H and Kirandeep. We had traveled their by minibus and when we arrived we were asked to wait at the front reception.There was a lady there who gave us our team names with labels on it. Then, we were escorted to the Assembly Hall where there were four other school. Then our math challenge had begun. 😀
There was a man who introduced us to our first activity which was the Math Carousel. In this challenge, we were randomly asked to pick a table where a six-former would be sitting to tell us about the activity. When we had finished we were told to repeat the same routine, changing to different tables. We had one more challenge which was the Treasure Hunt.
In this challenge, we were given a sheet to mark the answers from the questions stuck up on the walls. We were given a six-former to guide us and hint us with questions.There were four places in this challenge.Unfortunately, Team 1 came last but Team 2 had come 3rd. At last, they had totaled up the scores and Leonardo from Beavers came 2nd and Newton from Beavers came 6th. This trip was amazing and extremely fun because we had the chance to expand our knowledge with six-formers. We had enjoyed it alot ❗

Today we have been making chandeliers with the artist Joy Pirkle out of all of the bottles we have been collecting! We have had to cut the bottom of plastic bottles to create flowers by cutting out petals, adding tissue paper and colouring it in, they look really pretty! with the rest of the bottle we then had to turn it to spiralize for decorations. I think it’s been very good but there’s one downside: when your cutting it hurts your hands and fingers!

On Thursday 18th October, both Beavers A and Beavers B competed in the Hounslow North round Y5/6 football competition. Both teams scored some fantastic goals and played some football that was wonderful to see. We’ll find out our position when we get back to school – fingers crossed we make it through.
