This week in Science we were looking at different materials we might find at home and in the classroom. We then investigated how flexible different materials can be.
We have been busy with our STEM activities in First Class. We were challenged to put on our Engineering hats and design and build a bridge so the leprechaun could keep his pot of gold safe! We had lots of fun building our bridges. We did lots of problem solving as it was tricky to build a bridge that could support our pot of gold! We had to make sure our piers were sturdy and our arches were reinforced to be able to support the gold.
3D shapes for maths groups. We learned a rap and song all about 3D shapes.
Sixth Class children participated in their own Skiing Winter Olympics STEM challenge. They learned about gravity and forces to help them to construct their own participants and ramp.
Another student chose to make a Winter Olympics themed cake as part of the project
