Sports Day 2022
W/B 20th June 2022 - Daily Sports Challenges
This week, our school are taking part in a five-day sports week. Every day, each year will receive two sports challenges, and take part to see what scores they can get. On Monday, year 4 took part in a gymnastics and balance challenge. For the gymnastics, each child had to hula hoop for as long as possible and for the balance, everybody saw how long they could balance on one leg for. Some children were even able to hula hoop and balance for one minute, earning them a ‘gold medal’ score.

Friday 17th June - Olympic Torches and Clay Pot Monsters
On the 17th June, our class had a morning full of art - making Olympic batons and painting clay pot monsters. The clay creatures were part of our English lesson because our focus for a few weeks has been science fiction. The Olympic batons were made for the cross country team to run to Clover Lea Primary School with. They were made out of recycled materials such as cardboard, newspapers and bottles.

Thursday 17th March 2022 - STEAM Day
As part of our STEAM day today, we explored the question - ‘is there life out there?’. To link our learning to our science topic, Teeth and Digestion, we thought about what astronauts would eat when in space. We looked at how calories work and the suitable intake of calories per day for men, women and children. We developed our knowledge further by designing our very own balanced meal making sure we would be able to sustain ourselves. From all our learning in the day, we then had the task to design a space meal. We used our knowledge of food groups and taste buds to create our own space food. We designed the meal and the packaging too!

Monday 31st January - Tuesday 1st February 2022 - STEAM Day 2
We have been very lucky to have another STEAM day this week! This half term's question was 'How could we get into space?'. We looked at the different ways we can travel into space, such as jet packs, balloons and of course rockets! We discussed if our suggestions would work and what problems would occur. We finally decided that rockets were the best way to get us 'out of this world'! We then spent some time looking at rockets and took inspiration from various designs, looking at the aerodynamics and adding wings, to ensure we create the most effective rocket! We then got to launch our rockets, using white vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and water (and a very wet Mr Odell!). Take a look at some of the photos from the day and even a video of one of our rocket launches!
