Achieve the Impossible

We were sent an advert.....for an adventure....

But first we had to ask Antarctica? Where's that?

So we checked..... well first we thought about all the places we'd visited. Then we used atlases to find Antarctica. Most of us realised it was a polar region but some of use were not sure which one so we checked the index for Antarctica instead. Then we realised, it was the South Pole. 

Fantastically, the pupils applied their knowledge from last terms geography sessions and asked "Would you like the Longitude and Latitude of Antarctica on this map?" Mrs Mills was very pleased and almost danced on the table! Everyone worked in their pairs to create the best map that they could, working accurately and systematically to ensure an correct representation of Antarctica was reached. Then we discussed the conditions in that area. What did they think it would be like? We found that it would be extremely cold and inhospitable due to the ice flow and polar landscape.  

Achieving the Impossible

Mrs Mills really challenged Cedar today! As part of our OAA learning in PE we were focusing in on team work and effective communication. So when the pupils arrived abck after lunch, there was a challenge waiting for them.....

to build the tallest tower they could entirely from newspaper with no scrunching or ripping of the paper. It must be free standing.

(Initially, they weren't allowed any sticky tape either but it was soon given as a reward for their perseverance.)

Whoooooooooooo....... it was hard, hard to do it, hard to think how to do it and hard to co-operate for that length of time, communicating effectively. 

All of the groups tried extremely hard and we ended up with two free standing towers at over 1m tall!

Over the next few weeks we will be working with Dave from the Worcester Warriors. We will be working on maths skills through rugby based activities and learning some tag rugby.

Through partner drawing using blindfolds we were able to think about the shape we were drawing and focus on the use of our pencil. The results were interesting......
