To begin our technology work this term, the Year 5 children had a 30 minute challenge to make their own vehicle using some simple resources. Everyone worked brilliantly, thinking through the problems and rectifying mistakes. Great teamwork! Well done to Joshua and Jailyn who were our eventual winners with their vehicle for ‘Fishfinger Man’??!

Building Bridges

After reading the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff we decided to make our own bridges for the goats to cross the river. We predicted which materials would be the most suitable for a bridge and tested them out to see if our predictions were correct.
Mollie-Mae, Seraphina, Leo, Ollie and Kaiden also made some fantastic bridges at home.

Year 6 have made and tasted a recipe used to make a sweet spread used instead of jam during the war. The ingredients were a bit strange: cold mashed potato, cocoa powder and sugar! When we’d mixed the ingredients, we spread it on bread and braved the taste. Some children loved it and ate the bread and what was left in the bowl while others said it was like a ‘bush tucker trial’. Try it out – see what you think!
