Welcome to Class 12!


We have had a very busy term so far.Take a look at what we have been up to.

The big debate in class 12. Should zoos be banned? Both sides gave convincing arguments, but the "keep them open" side won.

A virtual investigation about gears.

Making and using pulleys to use less force to make a greater impact.

Water resistance. How can we make the playdough sink slower or even float?

Air resistance. Which parachute creates the most resistance?

The force of friction- what makes it high or low? Did you know it is measured in Newtons?

Testing the force of gravity and it's effect on falling objects.

The space dome.

Our homework was an astronomical challenge- To make a 3D solar system. Our work is amazing. Take a look at our photos, but come to the classroom to see the real thing!

For our writing mission we will be writing letters to our local MP about what we think needs improving on Oak Tree Lane Estate. Take a look at what we found.

We invited in our parents to help us with our "Make it" workshop. We designed, measured, used saws, glue guns and a variety of wood and other materials.

We visited Nottingham Trent University to find out what university was all about. We had a great time and even had our very own graduation ceremony.

Some of us attended the Mason's Fun Day at Bestwood Country Park. It was an amazing day. Thank you.

We had our second visit this year from The Pintsize Theatre Company. This time it informed us about the dangers of alcohol. Our very own Joel even took part.

Congratulations Class 12. Termly Attendance Winners!!

We had an amazing time at our Jungle Party to celebrate the end of our topic. We invented, designed and made all the games ourselves.

We became paleontologists, carefully excavating our clay rocks for fossils. Take a look at what we have found so far.

Are there too many lime sweets?

We investigated packets of Skittles and entered the data onto a spread sheet. Next we added a formula so that the spread sheet calculated all the totals. In conclusion, we found that there were in fact, too many strawberry flavoured sweets. Our recommendation to the makers of Skittles would be to put the same amount of each flavour sweet in every packet.

Full of jumping beans- look at us in gymnastics.

Launch of the Daily Mile- 10 laps around the playground!

Can you guess what characters we were for World Book Day?

We are dressing as our favourite characters for World Book day, as well as taking part in drop and read throughout the day.

Take a look at our timetable for after Spring half term.

How big can we construct this triangle?

Today we took part in a workshop run by the NSPCC. The message is very simple; Speak Out. Keep Safe.
