Well done to everyone who entered our marble run STEM challenge over the last 2 weeks. Children, both in school and at home as part of their home learning, have clearly had great fun finding ways to move the marble. We loved seeing the different ways you all engineered solutions to control the speed and direction of the marbles. Hopefully, you all had great fun taking part. Here are some of our favourite designs from in school and at home.
A massive thank you to everyone who has taken part in our Big Make project last week! We loved everything that was shared from musical instruments, to art and pastry! Here is a selection of some of the fantastic work from last week! Well done everyone!
A challenge was set out last week for you at home to send a picture of a blue flower to Miss. Lovelock. This could be achieved in any creative way desired - photography, painting, drawing, model, cake - the choices were endless. Every picture sent was so wonderful, we thought we would share them to spread the joy! Here are your creations!

Years 4, 5 and 6 were treated to a forensic investigation workshop last week in celebration of 'British Science Week'. We had a great time being forensic investigators who were tasked with solving a crime. We had to seal off the crime scene, gather evidence without contaminating it and explore different finger prints and DNA to work out who the suspect was. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed getting involved and solving the crime.
Well done to Oak class who spent last Friday afternoon working with the Parish Council to have a big tidy up around Great Linford. The children got kitted up in their hi-vis vests and gloves and used grabbers to collect the rubbish- They looked very professional! After just over an hour we were very surprised to have filled 8 bags with litter just from our local area. Oak class should be very proud for helping to make a change in our local community.
As part of our topic 'The Romans' we have been learning about catapults in art. We talked about various materials and why they would/wouldn't be suitable for a catapult and then got designing. We got to use saws to cut our shape so had to be very careful. Check back here in a few weeks to see the final models and see whether they were successful or not.
Our trip to the pig farm (Curly Tails) was amazing! We got to feed them and pet them - It was so much fun!
One of the pigs is blind and he is called Big Boy Boris. There were two pigs wandering around near the front and they were called Maud and Ethel. We got to feed them some apples. It was very muddy and Lissie got splashed with mud by a pig called Humphry.
We learnt that if a pig smelt you and you came back to Curly Tails it would remember you.
Polly and Hayley walked through a giant puddle and the pig just walked away from them.
A pig scared the life out of Mia because she was not paying attention.
