Quidditch STEM

This week Miss Stark set P7S a STEM challenge to design and create a Quidditch broomstick with natural outdoor materials. She only gave us 5 elastic bands and 2 metres of string to help. Over the course of the week we planned, prepared and evaluated our task.

This morning we went to the woods at the Delph Pond to gather our outdoor materials. We worked in groups of 3 and had loads of fun collecting stuff like sticks and leaves.

We came back and had half an hour to assemble our brooms with our teams. Then when our time was up we presented our brooms to the class. Take a look at our design process and finished products below, we hope you like them! We are SO proud of them!

Sorting Ceremony

As part of our Context for Learning – Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone. P7S held a sorting ceremony to place pupils into one of the  4 Hogwarts house teams: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.

In our houses the first task was to design a  shield that represented our house. We had to use our house colours and include two words used to describe the characters of our house in the Sorting Hat song.



Please feel free to leave us a comment and let us know what you think of our designs!
