Robins Visit Midsomer Norton Railway

Robin Class had an excellent trip to Midsomer Norton Railway Station today despite the cold weather.

The children met the signal master and were allowed to move a real signal for themselves – even Adam’s mum had a go!

Then we had a look inside an old train carriage from the 1950s.  It was very different from train carriages today.

Then we had a surprise treat… a ride in the guard’s carriage.  We travelled along the track towards Chilcompton and back again.  Everyone had a great time and asked some super questions.

Many thanks to the team at the station for putting on such a great trip and also the adult helpers from Welton who braved the cold weather to join us.

 

Here are a few pictures from the trip…

Home School Challenge Term 4

Invention Convention challenge

Where possible, it would be great for the children to make a model of their invention. However, where that’s not possible, a labelled diagram/explanation would suffice.

The children will need to bring their inventions in by Thursday 22nd March and parents will have an opportunity to come and see them on the Thursday afternoon and then Friday morning (more details to follow).

I hope that helps – please let me know if you have individual concerns.

 

Scientists at Work!

Today Robin Class worked really hard on a scientific experiment to find the best material for making an umbrella for Pirate Pete.

Overall we decided that the plastic would be best but it would look better if it was coloured like the fabric.

The children were super scientists organising their resources carefully, taking health and safety precautions and using English and Maths skills to support their Science learning.

We are now looking forward to our STEM term where we will have lots more hand on experiments.
