Year 5 | The Astonishing Vacuum Cleaner Adventure.

by Mr Collinson

On the 1st November year 5 pupils had a fantastic opportunity to watch The Astonishing Vacuum Cleaner adventure in the Zion Centre. This was an interactive experience, where the children had a chance to get involved in the show. The show helped the children to explore new ideas and link them to the knowledge of solids, liquids and gases. During the show, year 5 pupils have been working together to solve problems, using creative thinking.

 

In addition to this, the pupils had a workshop, provided by the Zion Centre, where they worked collaboratively in groups exploring how the vacuum cleaners work and coming up with great scientific conclusions.

Computing | Hour Of Code

by Mr Collinson

What is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2018 Computer Science Education Week will be December 3-9. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

We went through the swishy swashy grass, the splashy river, the squelchy mud, stumble tripped through the forest and went through a swirly whirly snowstorm! We then tip toed through the cave and saw the bear!! He was sleeping but he soon woke up with all our noise so we quickly ran back inside, shut the door and decided we didn't want to go on a bear hunt again!
