Year 1 and 2 Design and Technology  Balloon Buggies Day 1

It was so nice to have all the children together today to begin making our Balloon Buggies. This morning we explored how gravity works as a downward force and how friction works to slow down and stop movement, as well as learning about air propulsion pushing forwards. Children then planned and designed their buggies. 

This afternoon we began making our buggies and have completed basic frames with bases, bearings, axles and wheels. Tomorrow we will be decorating, improving and testing our buggies. 

Many thanks to the volunteers who came in to help us today, we could not have done it without you! 

We like to party ...

... although we can’t all dance Ganglam Style as well as Mrs Fairhurst!

Children enjoyed traditional party games including pass the parcel and musical statues before indulging in some party food then a bit more dancing. 

Thank you to the parent association for providing party hats, gifts and cup cakes.  

More sports day

Sports Day!

We had a wonderful time at our sports day. It was such a shame not being able to invite parents, but we didn't let it stop the children having fun. Thank you very much to Mrs Reynolds for organising it all, and well done to the Griffins, who have won the house cup for the first time. 

A plea for help!

Calling ALL Year 1 and Year 2 parents, carers and grandparents (plus any willing aunts and uncles)

On Thursday and Friday this week, whilst Year 3 are out at Oxenwood, we will be coming together for a two day Design and Technology project, making balloon buggies. We would be extremely grateful for any adults who are able to come and help support us and the children in this. I am hoping to get the children using tools and equipment, so the more pairs of hands (and eyes) the better. 

If you are able to come in and give us some of your precious time please let me know as soon as possible. You do not have to commit to the full two days but if you are able to join us for a morning or afternoon this will help enhance the experience for the children and make the project as 'hands on' as possible. 

Even though we are having our DT days on Thursday and Friday cricket coaching will be as normal so children should still wear their PE kit on Thursday please.

Many thanks in advance

Mrs Winter
