In this half term, Falcon and Swan are going to be working on one overall learning challenge:
What does the automaton do?

Read the Curriculum Newsletter above (or the paper copy sent home) to see what we will be covering in this topic.

Across many different subjects we will be looking at automata: how they work; their place in history; how we could create our own. Why not watch the promotional video for the MAD Museum below to get inspired and excited for our upcoming trip to visit it!

The MAD Museum

We've put the finishing touches to our brand new promotional video, to help show off our new Henley Street location. Let us know what you think. Many thanks to Graham Cooper and his team, Dan Croxford and Chris Bartlett, for all their hard work filming and editing the video.

Safeguarding Workshops 07.11.17

 

We were joined by volunteers with the NSPCC to talk to us about how we can be involved in safeguarding. The leaders were really impressed with how well we listened and contributed, making our teachers extremely proud of us!

 

'We learned about the different types of abuse and we learned that Childline is free and you can call anytime.' - Evelyn 

 

'I thought it was very good and we learnt a lot about what to do when someone is neglected. We watched some clips and learnt what the phone number was and the actions to go with it.' - Amelie

 

'It was really fun because we learnt about loads of stuff.' - Brandon

 

'We did a sheet that had on it things that make us happy and safe, people and places. We also talked about good secrets and bad secrets.' - Isaac

 

'What she taught us was that if someone said 'Let's watch an inappropriate film', what we could say and if someone sent us an inappropriate message, don't block them straight away; show your parents the evidence and then block them.' - Jacob

Picture 1 We made some resources to take home with us.

LEGO: A Falcon Class Brickumentary!

Still image for this video
During 'No Pens Wednesday', we rehearsed the sentences we could use when writing our biography of the Lego company by recording the voice-over to our own 'Brickumentary'!
In maths we had to make shapes with a perimeter of 20cm.

Balancing upthrust and gravity.

We investigated how the surface area of a parachute affects the speed at which it falls. This helped us to demonstrate air resistance and sent our Lego mini-figures flying!

We worked in groups to present an introduction to the Lego company suing superlatives and hyperbole!
