Larch completed their 6 week 'Healthy Hearts' PE unit with Nottingham Trent Bridge Cricket Club
Larch class designed and made boats to test water resistance. They had to think about how streamlined their boats were and what materials they used to make their boat travel faster. The competition was intense!
Larch created their own spreadsheets using Purple Mash. They picked up this skill very quickly and were able to use a budget and create formulas to show money spent per item, total money spent and money left over (or not!)
Larch spent time marking each other's persuasive writing, which included giving each other quality feedback about how they could improve their work. This peer assessment resulted in better quality writing and they all displayed excellent teamwork, communication and respect throughout.
The children investigated friction by designing and testing a new break pad for bikes and scooters, using different materials.
Larch made a variety of parachutes to test air resistance in our forces science topic. They had to make sure that they planned and conducted a fair test.
Larch took part in a freeze-framing drama activity for our 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' Shakespeare English topic
Writing from Larch Class - haven't they done incredibly well!
Electricity science experiments including torch making and lighting LEDs with lemons!
