Y5 Control Workshop (39 images)

Children in Y5 took part in a computer control workshop run by STEMworks and supported by actual engineers. The children were challenged to build and then program their robots to complete a series of tasks for which they received points. The winning teams will look forward to a trip to GE Aviation to learn more about being engineers. Skills such as problem solving, team work and perseverance were on show from all the children to complete this tricky yet fun activity.

Y5 share their knowledge of 'Forces' with Y2! See Gallery here. (23 images)

As part of their science topic on forces, the children in Year 5 devised games that involved one of friction, air resistance or water resistance. To test these games out, the children in Year 2 came to the Junior School and had a go! Each of the games were run by the older children and scientific explanations were given to the younger children to help them understand what forces were at work.
