Lower school children had an amazing time making lanterns for the Flying High Trust Awards Evening in June.



February 20, 2017: Volcano Day
After weeks and weeks of construction, today we made our volcanoes erupt using water, washing liquid, red paint, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We had great fun watching each volcano bubble up and burst over the side of the crater. In fact, we had so much fun we thought we'd turn the eruption into a video using iMovie, a SpecialFX app, and a greenscreen app.



February 6, 2017: Various volcanoes
In our DT lessons we have been building volcanoes. We started with a crater made of a plastic bottle with a yoghurt pot in the top of it, and then added scrunched up newspaper around the bottle to make a mountain shape. Then we papier-mached strips of paper over the scrunched up newspaper to smooth down the sides of the mountains before painting the mountain black and adding some red paint for lava effects. To complete our project, during the next lesson the children will be placing vinegar and baking soda in their 'crater' and watching as their volcano "erupts".



January 18, 2017: Building Big Ben
The Monday after school STEAM club have been busy working on a grand project for the past two months, and have finally completed it. They have been using the 3D printer, a clock kit and a Raspberry Pi to print the parts of the Big Ben tower, paint the parts, construct the tower, install a working clock, and finally programme a computer to play recordings of the actual chimes and bongs of Big Ben. The printed pieces | Painting | Constructing the Tower Adding a working clock | Adding the computer | Completed Tower Fantastic work from all involved.



December 18, 2016: A towering success
Well done to the Monday after school STEAM club who have completed painting and constructing their latest 3D creation - Elizabeth Tower, home of Big Ben. After Christmas they will be adding real working clock hands to one of the faces to turn their creation into a working timepiece.
