Wasps nest & shapes

We were lucky enough to find a wasps nest (minus wasps thank goodness). We cut it open to see what shapes we could find. It is utterly amazing to see the wonders of nature. It is extremely light and the layers are almost like paper.

We cut it open and saw that they use cells similar to bees.

Trip to Microsoft

5th class were very lucky to be able to visit Microsoft’s Dreamspace. They were given a small tour and some history of the company. After this they worked on programming their own microbits and later working collaboratively on a project using Paint 3D. They created some amazing projects.

5th class construction

5th class had been challenged to build the tallest structure using only marshmallows and toothpicks. The structure had to remain standing unsupported for 15 seconds in order to be considered.

The winners worked really well together sharing ideas and not eating the limited supply of marshmallows given!
