Teamwork is so important. To be an effective member of a team, we must practise essential skills such as collaboration, communication, leadership and time management.
Below, you can see how we often decide on important qualities in a team member in advance of a group activity. After our activities, we reflect on what went well and the areas upon which we can improve!
Presented with an array of materials, we chose those we thought most suited to making a successful air canon. These videos show you the very creative results!
When conducting a Science experiment, it is important to ensure that it is a fair test. Do you think this video is proof of a fair test....or are some people edging past the start line with their catapults?
Our experiments with Makey Makeys allowed us to gain an understanding of circuits in a most unusual way...by making a banana keyboard. We investigated which other materials conduct electricity too, and changed traditional music notes on a stave to symbols that allowed us to play Ode to Joy using fruit and tinfoil!!!
From there, we combined our knowledge of Makey Makeys with our coding expertise to make something really fun. We code every week during Maths stations using Scratch, a visual programming language that allows us to create games and animations. When we hooked our Makey Makey kit up to Scratch, we managed to make a cardboard controller for a game we programmed ourselves that actually works!! Just look!
