As in previous years, please listen to your child read as often as possible each week, help them to practise and learn their tables and spellings and encourage them to practise their Maths on Mangahigh.

Please be aware that additional homework is given out every Friday and the children are rewarded for handing their completed work in on a Monday morning. At times, your child may be given extra homework to practise particular skills. Please remember to check and sign your child's homework diary every weekend.

STEM - The BLOODHOUND SSC Project at Hull University, January 2016

On 14th January we had another special activity day to promote the children's interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (known as STEM). This time we visited Hull University and spent the day with the Mechanical Engineering Department and the team who are part of the Bloodhound SSC Project.  The Bloodhound is a car (designed to travel up to 1000 mph) which will attempt to break the World Land Speed record in South Africa in October this year.

We took part in three workshops: a tour and exploring the Bloodhound Car; working in teams to build and test an air-powered K'nex car; learning about Additive Manufacture (3D printing) and creating a simulated 3D printed car out of craft foam.

What a fantastic day!
