Mr Lindop: May 2019
Taskmaster club had a culinary theme this week. The Wren Taskers competed in three tasks each more challenging that the last.
The first was our first ever individual task. Each tasker had to peel a banana without using their hands. Some...interesting approaches were on offer. Well done to premium peeler, Izzy.
Next, we built the tallest tower we could using spaghetti and marshmallows. Some wobbled, some collapsed, but everyone had a good laugh.
Our final task: get an egg as high as you can in 10 minutes without breaking it. This was a lot of fun. Trees were climbed, eggs were precariously thrown, there was a frisbee for some reason. The climbing frame was the favoured solution though and in the end there was only a matter of centimetres in it.
Well done Taskers! See you next week.

The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy.

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
