Challenge. Problem Solving. Collaboration. Team work. Innovating. Designing. Building. Inventing. Debugging. Today’s STEAM day had it all! We had so much fun creating Lego prototypes that could be programmed using the WeDo app. The children picked up the concept really quickly and were able to explore different algorithms that made their creations do different things.

Year 6 have really enjoyed learning about Classification of Living Things. We have learned about Carl Linnaeus who invented the classification system, how living things can be grouped, how to create classification keys and the different types of leaves in our school grounds. Such a great first science topic!
So impressed with the Year 6 children’s artwork this term – we have been using multimedia techniques to create our own giant waves based on a Hokusai painting. Also, the children have been constructing, using papier mache and painting their volcanoes, ready for next week’s explosions!

A brilliant start to a brilliant topic – discussing how to survive in a Natural Disasters situation and choosing the right equipment!
