This week we were very lucky to have a talk from Mr Haddow. In science week, we have looked at all the different careers you could have in engineering and Mr Haddow introduced us to yet another; Tissue Engineering. We had a fascinating talk about how cells can be ‘made’ in a laboratory and used to replicate human organs, such as skin. We discovered that in the not too distant future it may be possible to make whole organs, such as lungs and kidneys and it may even be possible to print these with a 3D printer. Judging by the questions, the children found this incredibly interesting, so once again, thanks so much for coming to speak to us!
This week in maths we have been calculating the perimeter and area of shapes. As it was such a glorious day on Friday, we went outside and drew some square metres on the playground. This was a good opportunity for the children to gain an idea of the scale of rectangles drawn in square metres.
Finally, as it was the Big Pedal special breakfast on Friday, I would like to say a big thank you to all the children and parents who cycled or scootered to school. The weather was glorious and it was a great turnout. Thanks also to my daughter, Millie, who came into school to talk to the children about getting into cycling!
