Virtue of the Week

Hours of painstaking work and our engineers have finally cracked it!
"We found the whole experience exciting and fun."
"We enjoyed being able to use our creativity."

"I'm a kinaesthetic learner so enjoyed being able to physically create something."
What a busy week it has been! The children have been working flat out on their space rovers adding their final finishing touches. In their final designs, the children considered how the rover would be powered, which functions it would perform (geothermal imaging, cameras, temperature probes etc.) as well as the general aesthetics.
I think you will all agree, that they did a fabulous job.
Yet more gems from last week IPC home learning task
The Grade 6 students had a whale of a time playing the timestable game together. Mathematics lessons were made a little more interesting when the two classes, 6 NCo and 6 THa had a timestable challenge last Friday. Both classes usually have this challenge on Friday for about 10 to 15 minutes before they proceed with their normal lessons.
Both classes, with 20 children each in a class, clocked a fantastic 52 seconds for this challenge. Each child will have to answer a times table questions given to them. We are sure the children will take less than 52 seconds in a few weeks’ time!
This week saw the Grade 6 Extended children conduct their first UES Mathematical Examination in the High School Hall. This was a great opportunity to show all our amazing Mathematical learning this term. Furthermore, it provided key data which will be used to set targets for the children in the new year.
