ARCHITECTURE WORKSHOP

On Friday 11th March class 5/6 enjoyed a fantastic afternoon creating a Stadium during the Architecture Workshop. Bob taught the children how to make a triangular based pyramid using sticks and elastic bands and how to develop this in to the final structure.

 

Along the way, he discussed why triangular shapes are better than square shapes for building structures, got the children to create algebraic equations and set them a challenge of getting part of their roof structure off the floor by only using 6 sticks, 3 large and 3 small ones and rubber bands.

 

A great afternoon

YEAR 5 SCIENCE

 

In science we have been investigating mechanical devices that can help us to transfer forces or motion. We have investigated how gears, pulleys & levers are simple machines, which can make it easier to transfer forces or motion.

 

The following photographs show the children experimenting with different gears and making their own pulley systems.

 

TINS FOR TOYS SALE

Class 5/6SB ran a Tins for Toys sale at school on Tuesday 1st March.  In R.E. the class had been learning  about 'A Fair World'.  As part of their work, the children empathised with homeless people and those going through 'tough times'.  So we decided to repeat Tins for Toys again this year.

 

The class asked for donations of toys from the rest of the school over a 6-week period.  Then on 1st March, they asked the whole school to bring in tins of food to donate in exchange for toys!  The sale was a tremendous success.

 

Proceeds of the food will be split between Leamington Night Shelter and the local Food Bank.
