Feel The Force

Year 3 and 4 are learning more about magnets and forces in their new Science topic this term.  Learning to use a force meter to measure the amount of force required to pull objects across different surfaces will be a fun and challenging way to discover more about friction…



Wheat Transplant! 

Very delicate work was the order of the day tonight in gardening club.  After very disappointing growth of our wheat we decided to replace the small tillering variety (maybe they were overcrowded) with our big strong Kamut seedlings.  We grew the Kamut wheat very successfully in a large plastic window box for 3 weeks.  It will be interesting to see if they thrive in the garden after being moved!


We were delighted to welcome a teacher from Corby to view our gardens and share some seeds to follow in the footprints of The Little Red Hen with her reception class who are equally excited to be sowing their first grain!  It will be really interesting to compare notes with a local school.  We will both be sowing our wheat seeds this week and can’t wait to see how they grow!

 

Year 6 Bring Their Circuits to Life 

In one group adding 6 cells actually worked a bulb.  When we added motors and buzzers together the buzzers worked and the motors stopped.  When you add more motors and buzzers you need more wires to connect them.  We added lots of cells the bulb lit up very bright.   When we added a motor the bulb went very dim.  Lots of fun was had by all.  Blog written by Year 6!
