Our learning 17th May 2019

This week was digital learning week. We had great fun using Bee Bots with the digital leaders. It was such a fun workshop. We looked at how digital technology has changed over the years.  Mrs Boyle told us about what kind of technology there was in the 1980s and 90s and how it’s changed so much over the years.

We did a STEM challenge this week which was called the Roly Poly challenge. We used paper plates and toilet rolls or kitchen roll tubes to make a wheel. We then videod these rolling in the corridor to see how far they would roll. Most of them worked very well!

We have also been working on our flower bed in the Field of Dreams which was full of weeds. With a bit of hard work and effort from us all we have made it look good again.  6F608C2E-E1B7-479C-BD58-DE8AA6A48AE3
