Room 8, 9 and 10 Play Based Learning a few Snapshots.....

The "Crane" 
Patrick and Ben worked hard to create a crane from the Lego which they told me also works as a ride at a park!
The Marble Run.
Isaac and his team worked hard in their problem solving to  make a construction that could make the marble travel from the top to the end with out stopping.

The Farm
Kenzie, Olivia, Sam and Tessa all enjoyed creating a farm with the animals through dramatic play. 

Harry produced a fantastic "puppet show" which I thoroughly enjoyed!

Van worked very hard on his block tower.  It even had a place to park the boat. And a look out to watch out for the "baddies"


What a Crazy Day!  I didn't recognise my class!


Room 10s Trip to the Faraday Centre.  What a fantastic trip.  We learnt so much about wheels and we got to explore a lot of machines that use wheels.

Technology Rotation - Balloon Cars

For Room 10 Technology Rotation we made Balloon Cars. 
In this activity, students design and build a balloon-powered car to better understand the science ideas related to rocket propulsion. They use ideas of mass and force to work out ways to improve the distance travelled by their car.
