What an amazing week!
Across the school we have been focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), in year 5 we were set the challenge of making our very own balloon powered car.
They had a few basic instructions to follow and a set of materials they had to use, in groups they worked together to make the cars. Their first attempts didn’t move very far, some went in circles or flipped over, but they were excited to evaluate their designs and improve them.
After a group discussion, writing instructions, redesigning and making the car again we were much more successful!
Our winning groups were…..
Willow Class: Ozzie & Alexi
Birch Class: Ethan, Cloe, Wade & Emily
