Year 3 & 4 have been investigating different surfaces, finding out which ones cause the most friction. Working in groups the children tested a range of surfaces from different types of carpet, foam and bubble wrap to sand paper and plastic. Each group recorded the distance their car travelled down the ramp, in centimeters. They were very surprised by some of their results as they were not what they had predicted!
In Design and Technology, Years 3 and 4 have been working to develop their own pneumonic systems to create a moving monster.
Have a look at their fantastic creations!
Brookmans Buddies Christmas Songs - Thursday 8th December 2022
It was a chilly but beautiful morning for the Brookmans Buddies’ Christmas walk to the village green on Thursday. Our wonderful Year 4 and Reception children sang Christmas songs around the Christmas tree to an eagerly-awaiting crowd. The Brookmans Buddies then gifted their carefully crafted Christingles to members of the crowd as we remembered that Christmas is a time of giving. To finish proceedings, the children were treated to some chocolate delights for all their hard work. A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who braved the cold to support the children. It is very special to watch these friendships between the Year 4 and Reception children flourish.
Last Thursday there was much excitement when Year 4 met their Reception Brookmans Buddies! We began by discussing the important roles and responsibilities this job entails. After having our photo taken with our buddies, we completed an activity card that each Reception child took home to share with their families. We are really looking forward to sharing our Friday lunch with our buddies this week. Hopefully, if the weather holds, we'll be able to have a short play together on the multi-surface area after lunch.
