Welcome to Year 1!
STEM Project: Recreating the Santa Maria
We have been learning about Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America. Inspired by his journey we have been designing and creating our own ships, based on the Santa Maria.
We tested materials to see what would float and stay waterproof. We decided that plastic was best and brought lots in for our building afternoon.
Marble Run Challenge
To celebrate Science Week, each class took part in a Marble Run Challenge. Year 1 really rose to the challenge, not only to create their own marble run, but to develop their teamwork and communication skills. Everybody did a excellent job with all times have a working marble run to their name. The winners, however, for their design and outstanding teamwork throughout was the Red Team! Well done!
