Engineers Week

As part of Engineer’s Week the children in the senior room were tasked with the challenge of designing a paper airplane. Children worked in groups to design and remodel their ideas before having a class competition to see which airplane flew the furthest and which stayed the longest in the air.

3D shapes

February 22nd, 2024

Nothing like lots of hands-on learning to explore the properties of 3D shapes in the senior room! Children made 3D shapes out of spaghetti and marshmallows, magnets, worked on some problem solving challenges using cubes and completed IPad work in groups. A few marshmallows were saved for a treat after all their hard work!
