A Wonderful Production

This week we were so lucky because we got to go and see the creative and inspiring production put together by the year 5/6 extension group. The children wrote, acted danced, designed all the sets and more. It was so wonderful to see and a group of students working so hard to create something that entertained and inspired their whole school. They told the story of a group of children travelling through time and learning that life is more than just spending time on your computer.



Well done to all the student involved Room 14 loved your show.

Making Kites

We have been working hard all term to make strong kites that will fly without us running. We tested all kinds of materials and decided that plastic was stronger than paper and that we needed a strong frame to hold our kites together. We also talked about how have limited instruction made kite making more challenging.

First we had to tie our plastic sticks to create a cross. 

Then we had to put string around the outside to make a solid frame. 

Some of us found this part very challenging but by working together and helping each other we created string kite frames that were ready for their plastic. 

Once our plastic was on our kites we added a tail and some string. 






Now we just need to wait for the perfect windy day to fly them. We have learnt a lot about kites this term and we look forward to sharing our reflections on how they fly.

Rainbow Stars

Today Room 14 made rainbow stars. We made them with fairy bread and the best part was that we got to eat them. It was loads of fun and we enjoyed eating the sweet crunchy bread.
