Y6 visit to the Aviation Academy

Yesterday, the Year Six children travelled to the Aviation Academy in Norwich to take part in a series of workshops focusing on STEM activities (science, technology, engineering and maths)!
We learned about the four main forces that act on an aircraft and how it stays in the air; we used coding to direct a robot buggy around an extremely complicated maze; we designed and constructed satellite towers; built shelter structures using only paper as a building material and met a whole host of inspiring and interesting people who use science, technology, engineering and maths everyday as part of their profession.
During the day the children had to work collaboratively in a number of different teams and work under pressure against the clock. Mrs Cockburn, Mr Bushby and I were delighted at the way teams worked together. They all displayed good communication skills and really supported each other. Many of the staff at the academy spoke to us about how impressed they were with the children’s attitude, determination and team spirit. We are exceptionally proud of all of them. Well done Year Six!

Year 6 need your rubbish!

Dear Year Six,
Please remember to bring in any clean plastic bottle tops, odd buttons, small boxes ( ie match box size) small foil dishes ( the size mince pies come in) and any straws or pipe cleaners that you can spare.
If anyone else has any of these items, Year Six would be very grateful. Please send them to the Year Six class room or the office by Tuesday morning.
With very many thanks,
Mrs Niven and Mrs Cockburn

Shoe boxes needed, please!

Year Six will be needing several shoe boxes for their Design Technology project this half term. If you have any shoe boxes that you no longer need, please send them into school. We would be very, very grateful.
We are also looking for scraps of fabric, odd ends of balls of wool, clean, empty yogurt pots and spare bubble wrap. These will all be needed for an exciting DT challenge project during our space-themed book week. If you have any of the above, please send them to Year Six.
With very many thanks,
Mrs Niven, Mrs Cockburn and the Year Six children!
