On Tuesday 10th March we were lucky to have Mr Cooper in to speak to us about his job as a Structural Engineer.
He talked to us about why he became an engineer, the subjects he enjoyed at school and what his job involves.
We saw lots of photos of a building that he engineered in Leeds City Centre.
We talked lots about bracing and the importance of safety and stability in buildings.
Today 5MJ had a practical experience of air resistance when we tried to run with and without an umbrella. We found it was easier without!
Adwaya in year 6 has made a circuit and programmed his micro:bit so that when you tap the orange and banana it plays a tune. He created this at home and brought in the parts to show us. Very impressive I thought!
Year 3 have been exploring shadows using a shadow puppet show.
An experiment to show how cold it is in North Sweden.
Alexia and Jmaarni created a science experiment but the formula is a secret, don’t tell anyone!
They put yeast and sugar in water and then put it in a water bottle and then as the yeast rose, the balloon inflated!
Nannette was keen to learn about the heart, so she researched it at home and recorded it in her jotter. Today, she wrote her notes in neat into our year 6 science investigations book.
