Christmas Cards inspired by Ben Kandinsky

We created covers for our Christmas cards inspired by Ben Kandinsky - an abstract artist who uses 2D shapes and contrasting colours to create his images. Our artwork was also inspired by the song 'Somewhere In My Memory' by John Williams, which is also the theme song from Home Alone! 

Leonardo Stem Day - 

STEM: Year 6 were visited by apprentices from Leonardo to help run a STEM day.  The class were challenged to build a track that would help them (a ping-pong ball) escape from the top of a pyramid, safely to the ground.  Afterwards, the children were challenged to build a boat that would help them continue their escape across the Nile.

Class 12's science projects:

In Year 5, we created a 'Solar System in my Pocket' which show the size and distance relative to the Sun on a strip of paper.


We took part in a space themed science experiment too. The children made their own rockets and decided how many fins their rocket would have. We tested the rockets as a class to see whose went the furthest. We used the results table to spot any patterns that we noticed.

Finally, we looked at the International Space Station (ISS) and created a phrase book that the astronauts could use. Currently, the astronauts on the ISS are from America, Russia and Japan so the children translated some phrases that the astronauts may have to use.
