Basketball Tournament

Posted in Sport

We have been learning basketball in school and some of us organised getting a team together to play in an open basketball tournament at the weekend. On the day there were three teams with the majority coming from our school and another local school. We played brilliantly as a team and had an outstanding team spirit. We won the main game and are very proud of ourselves!

Our Parthenon

Posted in Design Technology, History, Maths

Building our Parthenon was a long process. We faced many challenges along the way. Here is how it went:

1. We started off by researching the dimensions of the Parthenon to scale down to our Parthenon.

2. Then we started building the base for our Parthenon.

3. We started making the pillars. Here is what we had so far.

4.We made a net out of paper for our roof. We made it small so we could copy it but make it bigger. The net was made by Coolhusky.

5. We started making and putting on the pillars. Mistake number one: too much tape.

6. We finished off the pillars. Now for the roof!

In the end, we found out it was too small!!

We started again and made it perfect.

We worked well as a team. The roof went well. We would change our accuracy. Our calculations were correct but we halfed it too many times. 

 

Celebration trip

Posted in Computing, Music

We had a fantastic day in Exeter participating in a Celebration concert with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. We listened to different pieces of music, sang with the orchestra and learned lots of new facts about the composers-it was so much fun-thank you BSO.

Following the amazing concert we went in to Exeter to The Apple Store to learn more about how to code using Sphero Robots and make presentations using an app called ‘Clips’.

 

Here we are learning how to use ‘Clips’ and having lots of fun interviewing each other about the concert.

Here we are learning more about coding using the ‘Sphero’ robots:

 

The Doods

Posted in Music

Flo and I are really enjoying playing the Doods in class. We have learnt a variety of notes and it is really fun to learn how to play an instrument that is less well-known. We can’t wait to learn more and hopefully get really good!
The Dood is a wind instrument that we are very lucky to be playing.
