We took our pledge in the cathedral on Saturday the 26th of February. We are promising to not drink alcohol until we are eighteen years of age.
We got wristbands from Jenny and they say 'READY...STEADY...WAIT!!'
This means that we should wait and think before we drink alcohol.

Projectile corks!

6th class were presented with their latest STEM challenge: (science/technology/engineering and maths)

They had to construct a free-standing catapult capable of launching a cork.
The groups would then compete to see which cork would be fired the farthest.

The only permitted materials were...

  • large and small lollipop sticks (10 altogether)
  • rubber bands (6 or fewer)
  • binder clip (1)
  • clothes peg (1)
  • spoon 

NASA egg drop challenge!

6th class were presented with a NASA challenge today.
It was used by NASA to demonstrate the challenges of soft landing a spacecraft on Mars.
The class were given an egg (raw), some basic materials and the instructions that they  had to be able to drop the egg from a variety of heights and the egg should remain unbroken.
After 40 minutes, the parachutes and egg were ready....
I think the photos tell the story!
