Year 6 have loved our Science Week.
The week began in the hall with the amazing ‘Wonderstruck’ STEM show where we witnessed flames, explosions, beds of nails and cars powered by bangs and explosion.
Everyone in school made a rocket from A3 paper, held together with tape, and we all went onto the school field to launch them. They went SO far!
In the afternoon, KS2 built cars from kits, but, after building the prototype, made modifications to see if they could increase the speed. The speed trials were so exciting, and we had a final race in the hall.
On Tuesday, we had workshops with engineers where we built and tested bridges, then discovered the best shape for a boat which needed to carry a load.
On Wednesday we were NOT ALLOWED TO EAT SKITTLES but learned about chromatography – creating the most beautiful coloured wheels.
Meanwhile we have been building and testing structures on Friday afternoons with Mrs Thompson.
A huge thank you to our workshop leaders for inspiring our engineers of the future.
We hope that you enjoy looking at some of our photos!
