Spring Term

STEM Learning Project

Today we were introduced to a really exciting new project that we are going to be working on in groups for the next 5 weeks. We have been registered to enter a competition to design an all-terrain wheel for the Bloodhound engineering project. 

After an introduction to the bloodhound project we thought about the following three research areas:

  • the material properties of aluminium
  • how BLOODHOUND SSC’s wheels were made
  • how articulated wheels are currently being used

After looking at these research areas we had a better idea of the task ahead of us to design some all-terrain wheels for the bloodhound.

Break Dancing 

Some members of our class have been attending a break dancing afterschool club on a Tuesday evening. As a treat for Keystage 2 the afterschool club and the dance coach Kye performed some of their routines on Tuesday 8th January. There were some amazing moves on show and Kye talked us through the different styles of flips, spins and footsteps that you can use in break dancing.
