Designing a car

This week all of Year 6 are taking on the challenge to design and build a car which will travel in a straight line for 3m, go forward and reverse and travel up a ramp. 

On Monday we began the design process by thinking about chassis shape and wheel alignment. We came up with different designs and then worked with a partner to refine and amend our designs into a final one.


Homework is due on Friday 25th January and again on Friday 8th February

Tuesday 11th December - Skipping Experience

On Tuesday 11th December years 3 - 6 were very fortunate to be able to watch an excellent skipping demonstration by Stacey, the current UK Skipping Champion. She showed us different routines and skills, which she was AMAZING at!

In the afternoon we were able to join in a class workshop to be able to try some skills and techniques of our own.

We had to count how many jumps we could do before we ran out of energy or made an error. We were taught some different tricks which we could do with a skipping rope. It was then our turn to see how good were we. It was really hard – and we often ran out of energy, but it was definitely lots and lots of fun! Some of us would like to get our own skipping ropes and maybe become professionals in the future.
