After School Science Club
Our budding scientists enjoyed exploring space during this weeks Science Club. They had to work out how to make their balloon spaceships fly! Thank you to Mrs Kelleher for running this amazing club after school, everyone had so much fun!
On Monday 9th January, Ethelbert Road attended an F1 day at the Q.E. The children learnt about race car design and were then given the opportunity to design and build their own cars. They were able to test their aerodynamics in a special air tunnel. In the afternoon, the children raced their cars. Congratulations to all the winners!
States of Matter
The week beginning the 27th June was Science Week at Ethelbert Road. This year our theme was science in nature. Each class visited Oare to undertake science observation and had an amazing animal workshop.
On Sunday 26th June, six Year5 pupils represented their year group and school at the Young Eco Engineers, MEBP, green goblin go-Kart competition in Gillingham. The pupils raced their go-kart against 14 other cars in a number of heats. The children, parents and staff had a wonderful day.
All of year 5 were involved in designing the bodywork and build of the electric car. At the event Year 5 won best workbook. The workbook documents the team's progress throughout the project - the build and investigations to understand the technology and engineering of the go-kart.
Well done Year 5 and congratulations on winning the workbook award a reflection of all your hard work.
