iPads or Spinning Tops?

Children in Lower School have truly demonstrated their creative flair this week, designing a range of games using the skills and knowledge that they have developed throughout our topic! From quiz style board games to games using electrical circuits to programming their own computer games! We even had the pleasure of sharing our learning with Upper School this afternoon...

Light bulb moment!

This week in lower school we have been learning all about the innovative inventions of the Victorian period. As well as the children considering how important they believe the inventions to be (one of them was ice cream so that was very interesting) and carrying out presentations about specific inventors, they also wrote a newspaper report about Thomas Edison. 

In class 6 we had a go at looking at our work by candle light and considered how amazing it must have been to see an electric light for the very first time. 

The effort the children are putting into their topic work is outstanding, they clearly have a passion for it. Keep up the good work! 

Remember spelling homework and spelling shed for next week. Also, keep up the reading at home. I want to see lots more reading raffle tokens in the jar before the end of the term!

Have a lovely, albeit frosty, weekend.
