Class 4’s pneumatics project

Today class 4 were introduced to their new DT/Primary Engineering project that has been set by Bishops Castle Community College. The challenge is to design, develop and build a machine which features pneumatic based moving parts. The machine must be designed to help the construction industry in some way. To start our projects, we all had a go at creating our own pneumatic systems, using syringes and tubing. The children looked at the differences between the two different sized syringes and we discussed how these pneumatic systems can be used in their own projects. The teams have started to think about their ideas and the planning process has begun. I cannot wait to see what class 4 come up with after hearing their fantastic ideas!

 

A play based on The Far Away Tree

A few weeks ago Meredith & Amelie began writing their own play based on the book The Far Away Tree by Enid Blyton. After conversations between a group of friends the idea to put on a play happened. The group (from Class 3 & 4) practiced over playtime and lunch time and made a variety of props over a few weeks. On Wednesday they performed to the whole school. The audience were engaged with a great plot, comedy timing and jokes. They will be performing again on Friday to parents.

Orienteering at Carding Mill Valley with Class 4

Working in teams of ~4 pupils, Class 4 took on the TrustEd orienteering challenge on Tuesday. Each team was given a map of Carding Mill Valley with 12 locations to get to with their electronic dibber.

The children were set off in waves with differing routes to follow (5 variations). We anxiously waited for the teams to return, and the teams arrived back much quicker than expected!

40 teams took part and St George’s placed 1st, 2nd 3rd & 4th!  The 4 teams were well ahead of the 5th place school.

Our Easter Service

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend St George’s Church on Monday 18th to share in our Easter celebration. Through music, word, art and drama the children explored elements of Holy week.

For Christians, the death and resurrection of Jesus was the final part of God’s plan
Christians believe that, through Jesus’ death and resurrection, a way opened up for us as individuals to have a relationship with God and begin to tackle the wrongs in our world. They believe that Jesus’ death and resurrection makes a difference to both ourselves and society. That’s why Holy Week is so important to Christians. It’s the week when everything changed.

Gardening

After a bit of weeding, each class has been planting bulbs and seeds in our green house and raised beds. The children will be hoping to harvest at the end of the summer term ready to make potato salad with the onions, potatoes, lettuce, beetroot and carrot planted.
