Lunch Time Activity of the Week

During lunch times this week, the children have had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the 6 different personal challenges they are set to face in P.E. after half term.

The athletic based circuit has challenged but not defeated our enthusiastic athletes. You may recognise a few having a go and improving their own times, repetitions and precision on each station.

We look forward to watching the children progress and improve over the last half term of the school year.

Reception Starters 2019

If your child is starting school with us in September, you will soon receive a letter with information and dates about your child’s transition to Tibberton School. There will be several opportunities for you and your child to come into school and familiarise yourself with us and your new class.

 

Being beebots!

Year 1 and Reception have been having great fun doing maths outdoors this week.  We have been measuring lengths and heights of objects that we have found outside.  Today we have been using using the language for direction such as forward, backward, turn left, turn right.  We then programmed our Beebot partner to move around the playground!

Year 5’s STEM visit to Burton Borough School

Eight of our year 5’s had the opportunity to take part in a Science Technology Engineering and Maths workshop this morning. The main focus was algorithms which required the children to problem solve using computers, mathematical operations and programming.

Activities included;

1. The aeronautical challenge – virtual experience

2. Turtle challenge – programming by using and creating angles

3.  Lego challenge 1 – programming a plane using circuits to create movement, sound and light

4. Lego challenge 2 – programming a robot aircraft to travel a set distance of 180cm

5.  Micro:bit – programming your own Morse code message

6. The Drone challenge – whilst at the virtual Training Flight school, programming to make a drone fly

The children were challenged to work independently and also with a partner. It was a great way to meet children from other local schools too.  As ever, their behaviour was impeccable!

Well done to all involved and thank you to BBS staff who made us feel welcome.
