Science Blast-paper clip challenge

The children were set the challenge of making a paper clip float in water. As you can see many of them used other resources such as paper to allow them to complete this. Their enthusiasm to succeed was infectious. They were then given a top tip of using another paper clip. The children were amazed when they were successful.

This week we are launching the new and exciting maths website and app TT Rockstars in school. TT Rockstars is a great way for children to have fun with their times tables whilst increasing their confidence. Children will be using TT Rockstars in school but we would also like to encourage children to log on at home and play along with their Rockstar.
