Build a Bridge!

Class 4 have been learning all about materials and their properties in Science. They have explored strong and weak materials. This week they were set a challenge, they had to build a bridge to carry the weight of a toy car using only sellotape and paper! Each group stepped up to the challenge with flying colours.  They demonstrated excellent team work and splendid craftsman ship. Most importantly, each group created a self-standing bridge that was strong enough to carry the weight of a toy car! Their teacher was most impressed, there are clearly some aspiring architects in her class. Well done, Class 4!

Father Christmas has chosen Class 4 to house an elf during Advent. He watches to see if we’re naughty or nice. Each evening he flies all the way back to the North Pole with his Christmas magic to report back to St. Nick! He sent him to us on December 1st. We thought very carefully about what we could name him. After lots of deliberation, we decided on Elvis Buddy! He loves his name.

There is only one rule we must follow to see Elvis Buddy tomorrow.

We mustn’t touch him as his magic might go and Santa won’t hear all he has seen or he knows.

He will listen to us and we can tell him our wishes.

The gleam in his eye and his little bright smile shows us he is listening and noting our file.

Each day Elvis Buddy gets up to mischief in and around our classroom. Take a peek at his antics so far…
