Competition Winners with SPOT the robotic dog...

Before Christmas, Year 4 entered a competition to name the Sellafield new SPOT the robotic dog before it went on it’s first mission. Year 4 came up with the name NERD (Nuclear Environment Robotic Detector) and it was chosen as the winner!

 

NERD is already hard at work, so the team from Sellafield brought in another SPOT this afternoon. They told us all about what NERD is doing and how robots are being used. Year 4 were also shown how to control SPOT and the things it can do!

 

Thank you to both Sellafield Ltd and Primary Business Partnership for allowing us this fantastic opportunity!

TT Rockstar Day (October 2022)

As an introduction to our new topic in RE (What is it like for Christians to follow God?), we were set to embark on a pilgrimage walk from the Quaker Meeting House, Pardshaw through to Fell Church, Mosser. However, because of the poor weather conditions we remained at the Quaker Meeting House for the full day. We all learnt a lot about the Quaker strand of Christianity as well as our local history. We managed to get outside for a little while, and so we walked up a crag to where the Quaker people would have met hundreds of years ago. 

Design Technology - Baking our biscuits (October 2022)

We have had great fun during our DT topic - Adapting a recipe. We have practiced, created, adapted, budgeted and even branded our biscuits. However, the most important part is definitely the testing!

Class Worship - Friendship (October 2022)

As part of our Animals, including humans topic in Science, we have been gathering information about our digestive system. We got our hand dirty by creating a model of our digestive system, using everyday equipment to represent the different parts. We even used old tights to represent our intestines! We all had a lot of fun 😁
