Maple Class have been working very hard to finish their Design and Technology this week. Their task was to design and make a toy as part of the topic and for a competition in which the whole school would take part. The competition took place on Thursday 19th October and we were extremely pleased because five children won a prize in recognition for all their hard work. Well Done Maple Class

We were very lucky to have a special visitor come to Wolverdene on Wednesday 4th October. Kerry is a pilot in the RAF and has recently taken part in a competition to become an astronaut. She came in to share her experiences with all of the children and to give them some insight into what skills are needed to become an astronaut. All of the children listened with great interest and asked some very relevant questions. The experience has led to some members of Maple class questioning what career they would like to have in the future and we hopefully we may have some potential astronauts or RAF pilots in the making.

Maple and Oak class were extremely lucky this week as they visited Legoland to explore how gears and pulleys worked. When they arrived they went straight to their lesson where they were given the opportunity to use the Lego equipment to explore how they worked and to make a gear and pulley system themselves. All of the children were so well behaved and interested in the lesson that after lunch they had some time to have fun on some of the rides with the favourite being the Ninjago ride.

Maple Class have settled well into the new school year. They have enjoyed a number of different team building activities and in particular worked well in small groups to build the tallest tower to hold a giant marshmallow. A great start for Maple Class.
