Room 6 were busy mixing pva glue with come flour. Tben mix teaspoon borax in 2 tablespoons water. Mix borax solution into glue and cornflour mixture until it forms a new material a polymer which bonds together when pressed and rolled between hands. Add food colouring while mixing glue and Cornelius to give the ball a colour. Roll and squeeze until it comes together into a smooth ball.
Well done everyone!
Room 6 and Mr. Roche attended the Young Scientists Awards. They were showing their experiment all about whether the use of digital games would improve their table’s test score.
They also got to see lots of other experiments and tests.
It was a great day.
Fourth class had a fantastic day at the Helix, where they had their
minds blown by Andrew Jeffrey the mathemagician! He performed lots of
exciting maths magic tricks and showed us all some good tips on
remembering our tables. What a great way to celebrate maths week!
Here are some of the games we made for the Coding Competition. Have fun trying them out!
The pupils in Room 6 used Python to code the inputs and outputs of a raspberry Pi to record light levels using an LDR (light detecting resistor) and capacitor.
The light levels were recorded in Python and the code turned on and off an LED depending on the readings on the light sensor.
The boys and girls in Room 6 were busy creating projects using the scratch computer programme. They can also work on their projects at home.
Room 6 were busy making electricity quiz boards. They learned how to complete multiple circuits. They were able to ask each other quiz questions and check if the answer was correct by lighting the bulbs and using electricity.
Mr. Roche’s class were busy testing their fitness levels. They then worked on their fitness and coordination and tested the levels again. They used a spreadsheet to enter all of the information before and after improving their fitness levels.
They used graphs to show the differences.
