Inventions Week Launch
Today was the launch of our Inventions Week. All the children came into school dressed as scientists or inventions. They looked absolutely fantastic - we had lots of mad professors and even a life size phone! We can't forget the adults though. Mr Langston was Albert Einstein for the day and Mrs Jewell was a science workman.
All children were very excited to meet our special visitor Ian B Dunne who is a local scientist. He came to inspire us using some wacky inventions and incredible scientific discoveries. Everyone gathered for a whole school assembly and then each year group got the opportunity to attend a workshop with Ian to extend their knowledge and excitement. It was the perfect start to what will be a very exciting week.
Over the last few weeks, we have been waiting for our oranges to dry out after following the process of mummification!
We scooped their brains out! (took out the flesh) and dried the skin, added cinnamon and cloves to help it small nice, then filled it with salt and bi carbonate of soda, to help preserve the skin. After some neat wrapping with bandages they were placed on the radiator.
Take a look at the action!!
Today we went on holiday to Egypt as tourists visiting the Pyramids. Before flying we had to work out a maths luggage problem and then we were given a budget of £2000 to spend on the entire holiday (Miss Hendry and Mr Langston were feeling generous!)
After working out which flight and hotel we wished to stay at (and using our maths skills to deduct the cost from our budget) it was then time to fly! We were ushered into Langston towers airport and even given some on board entertainment and food. It was a bit of a bumpy flight though! Throughout the remainder of the day we booked various excursions and made sure to have a photo with a camel! It was a great day!
