Year 6 have been talking about e-safety this week with our local police officer, PC Tom Scott. They have learned all about the dangers of the most popular apps and websites and how to keep themselves safe on them; how to identify and avoid online scams; and they have also learned how they can ensure they are responsible online.
Year 6 have been thinking about careers in engineering, science, maths and technology this week. With help from Nissan the children have studied Japanese culture, created their own Daruma Dolls, took part in a production line creating a working car, completed the chopstick challenge and have designed their own car of the future. At the beginning of the week we had 8 children, one being female who had thought about a career in engineering; by the end of the week we had 19 children, 8 of the female who would now like to be an engineer. This is good news for the future of STEM!
Year Six were set a challenge this week to create something with Lego, inspired by books written by Vashti Hardy. Maia sent in photographs of ‘The Haunted Ship’ that she created and wrote the story to accompany it. We were so impressed by Maia’s creation that we sent the photographs to Vashti Hardy herself. We were thrilled when Vashti replied and asked permission to feature Maia’s creation on her website. Keep watching for Maia’s creation at www.vashtihardy.com
Well done Maia.
