Well done to our budding engineers who worked hard over the last couple of months with Mr. Turvey and Mrs. Bruce to design and build electric cars from kits. Every Friday after school the children were engaged in building the go-karts and recording their progress in a workbook. The project ended on Saturday 18th June with the children travelling to Rochester to compete in races against other schools. Not only did the children learn about technology and engineering, but developed their team work skills significantly too.
A big thank you to everyone involved in the project and to all parents involved on race day.
Merlin Class went on a school visit to Godstone Farm on Wednesday 8th June 2016.
Godstone Farm is set in a beautiful rural area of Surrey, full of natural sights and sounds.
At the start of our visit, we were greeted by a farmer who took us to a picnic barn.
We enjoyed looking at all the lovely and often funny looking animals!
We then went to meet and feed the pigs. One of them was very grateful and happy to pose for a picture! Oink-oink!!!
We participated in a small animals talk and handling session.
We walked around the farm using a map.
We took some notes about animals that we encountered during our visit.
Then, it was time to play…
Even the staff joined in…
We then went on a dinosaur trail.
We had lunch and then we went on a tractor ride.
We really have enjoyed our visit to Godstone Farm.
