The children were assigned the task of designing an Egg Protection Device to reduce the force of impact when their egg was dropped from a height. They had to think about how they could slow the egg down as well as how they could distribute the force of impact. They dropped the eggs once they were in their protection devices. 3,2,1, Drop!... Not all the eggs survived! Well done Pine Class.

Visiting The Hepworth this week deepened the children’s  understanding of Barbara Hepworth as a person and as an artist. They responded enthusiastically to the workshop activities with collaboration being on display at all times. They produced thought provoking sculptures using  minimal materials and only their hands as tools! Their efforts were inspirational! The children were a credit to themselves, their parents and their school—very proud of you Pine Class!

What a wonderful afternoon Pine Class had when the children delved deeper into the skills required to being an effective leader for their Archie Project and recognised that being trusting and trustworthy were necessary for such a role. In order to test this theory, everyone completed the ‘Walk of Trust’, by being led, or by being the leader, along a complex obstacle course, whilst blindfolded! Everyone had great fun during this outdoor activity, as they learned more about the role of leadership. Well done Pine Class!

Pine Class have been searching out the features of journalistic writing in preparation for writing our own newspaper articles. The children quickly recognized the structure and built up a bank of features. However, there were two new features to explore: passive voice and parenthesis. Active voice sentences were changed into passive voice, and we even had a couple of human sentences at the front of the classroom! Mrs Gay and I are looking forward to seeing this new learning in the articles  as they develop next week.

In preparation for becoming Young Leaders, Pine Class have been researching leadership skills and inspirational world leaders, such as: Jesse Owens, Bear Grills, Rosa Parks and Kaoly Takacs. The children have identified the characteristics of leaders such as these, then presented their findings to the class. They also created a poster of skills and traits they hope to develop as they journey through the Archie Project, where they will be seeking to improve their local area, and school, as well as doing kind acts for others.
