Fistral class wrote some poems on plastic in the environment, they selected their favourite line from their poem and we put them together in a short performance to create the poem “Can you imagine?”
Wednesday 28th April 2018 was the day for testing our STEM Egg Drop Devices. A highly successful test session, but only 2 groups made it through to the final.
During the school’s Mathematics Week, Fistral Class took part in an “OpenThe Box” challenge. The aim was to work collaboratively in groups to solve mathematical problems and puzzles finding codes to open padlocks on the Box. The more padlocks opened, the further the group got into the Box. A fun and challenging hour for all (including the adults).
Year 5 had a fantastic World War II experience day. We travelled to Devonport, Plymouth by train and took part in a learning and poetry workshop. See the video and picture album below to share our experience - even the adults joined in with getting dressed up.

Year 5 went to Newquay Aerohub to see Bloodhound SSC test up to 200mph before heading to South Africa to try and beat the Land Speed Record.
 
A fab day was had by all. The day included a science show, watching 2 test runs down the runway, lots of engaging activities in the engineering tent as well as meeting driver Andy Green himself.
