Blakemere had a brilliant time on Thursday taking part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) activity.

 

The children were tasked to think of different ways to use paper in order to make a bridge that could hold the weight of rocks. The children learned how folds and cylinder shapes increased the load capacity massively!

 

Also this week the children have been researching their favourite animals: producing a poster and working on their presenting skills to the rest of the class. Also in literacy this week the children really enjoyed learning about plastic pollution in the ocean and what we can do to make changes in our own lives. They have also created acrostic poems based on their favourite animals; I was so pleased with the descriptions they were using.

 

In Maths this week we have been working with data handling, highlighting the important parts in the question and trying to solve challenging word problems. They also completed a mystery maths pack on a swimming pool problem!

 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

 

Mr Huddart, Mrs Evans and Mrs Venables.
