This week we had our first robotics club. Children from KS2 were invited to join our club to work in teams to design and program a robot to move over the surface of Mars. Each group will have their robot entered into the national competition.

Year 3 have been exploring the properties of rocks to help to classify them into igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic rocks. We tested the hardness of rocks as well as the permeability. We observed using microscopes to see if the rocks contained crystals.

A comparative test to observe the permeability of soil samples from across the country - Cumbria, Northumberland and Leicestershire. We made our results reliable by using the same amount of water for each soil and made initial observations as well as observations after 5 minutes.

Year 3 made a dissected model to show the layers the Earth then used PicCollage to make a labelled diagram of their model.

Y4/5 and Y6 have spent the Spring term investigating gravity. They started by learning about gravity and its discovery, as well as other forces such as air resistance. They measured different items in Newtons using a force measure. Children then got the chance to design their own parachutes and learnt about how air resistance acts upon parachutes.
