What a wonderful week! On Monday, Year 6 visited St Leonard's Court air raid shelter as a conclusion to our World War II topic. It was interesting to see the impact the war had on our local area. The following day, we were lucky enough to be visited by the author Grant Strong, who talked through the process of writing and explained how important daydreaming is. Our fun filled week was finished off with a STEM Day.
Throughout the day, the children acted as engineers, designing, building and testing gliders, rockets and parachutes. We couldn't believe just how high our rockets went. We learnt that increasing the surface area of a parachute increased the air resistance and helped to protect our egg test pilots. Unfortunately, not all the test pilots survived.
Please take a look in the folder 'STEM Day' for more photos.
