SKILLS BLOX

Today we discussed how the things we do in school help us to get better at 7 key skills which will help us succeed in all areas of our lives.

GOOD LEADER/TEAM PLAYER, ADAPTABLE TO CHANGE, CURIOUS & IMAGINATIVE, GOOD COMMUNICATOR,

GOOD USE OF INFORMATION, GOOD PROBLEM SOLVER, FULL OF IDEAS.

We designed our own crests which reflected what we like doing and how we like to spend our time.

 

SCIENCE

We had an amazing morning at West Lakes Academy just before Christmas! We were exploring how much force it takes to make a party popper explode!!

We learned how to use safety equipment and how to make the investigation fair.

Some of our party poppers didn't pop at all and we ran out of weights to add!!

We put our data onto graphs when we got back to school.

STEM Day

We had a brilliant time working on our Lego Challenge!! We found out which of us were great leaders in the process!

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY:

This half-term we are trying to make an automata window display!

We've been through the planning stages and have just started the actual construction.

Keep watching to see how we get on!

SCIENCE:

Our Science topic this half-term is Forces.

We had great fun exploring how many Newtons different classroom objects were!

There were some surprises!

I had some new Teaching Assistants helping to deliver the football lesson this afternoon!

They were amazing and the rest of the class gave very positive feedback after the lesson!

There might be a couple more volunteers later in the year!

We had a great afternoon with Bill talking about what careers we might follow when we are older!

The best bit was the Lego competition! We were challenged to build the tallest tower that we could.

We decided that girls seem to have more success because they think about it a bit more than boys!

Sarah Dodd came to visit us at school today. She's an author and she lives in Lancashire. Her latest book is 'the Keeper of Secrets'. 

We had a great discussion about our views on the re-introduction of lynx into the wild in some areas of the UK.

Sarah's visit definitely gave us food for thought!
