Our first STEM Investigation is to design and create a Wind Powered Car. Children are provided woth the brief that scientists are looking for new forms of renewable energy to power cars and the children are to investigate whether or not wind would be a suitable alternative. Working in groups of six, the children had to work together to design, build and test their models. The children were only given a limited number of resources and had to investigate how to best use these to create the most successful vehicle.
The photos show some of the children’s wonderful creations.
In World Around Us, we have been learning about The Human Body. We started off by looking at the Human skeleton. We have been learning the names of the different bones in the body that make up the skeleton. Today we played a game in which we had to write the bones we have been learning about on a Post-it and stick it on our partner’s body, in the place where that bone is found.
Don’t we just look terrific?
