Badger Class - Spring Week 11
What a super exciting last week of term it has been! It was our British Science Week 2021 this week and the children were brilliant. The theme for this year was innovation for the future and in our class we focused on a Space Travel theme. We experimented with lots of ideas linked to this theme throughout the week.
At the beginning of the week the children designed and made rockets to travel to the moon and then they created their own vehicles that would provide a comfortable journey across the moon. Then the children had to get their people back from space so they investigated lots of ideas to find out about the best zip line which would give a fast but safe descent! Overall, the children came up with some fantastic ideas and they thought really carefully about how to measure the results of each investigation and work out whether it was successful. And they had a lot of fun which is very important!
Finally, Badger Class continued their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learning by completing their moving monster models using syringes to create air pressure to make them operate pneumatically. There was lots of problem solving and resilience during this task. The photos show how the children were very proud of their creations.
