The Ivy Learning Trust
I am delighted to inform you that last night our Governing Body voted in favour of Eastfield Primary School joining the multi-academy Ivy Learning Trust. This is a very exciting time for us all. Working together in partnership to provide the very best for our children and enhance the opportunities for all our staff.
A chilly start to the term…
After our half term break it felt good to be back at school this week. The cold, windy weather didn’t stop our outdoor learning!
Year 5’s Water Rocket Workshop
Today, with guidance and instruction from Andrew Hanson, from the National Physical Laboratory’s (NPL) water rocket expert, teams of Year 5 pupils constructed rockets from basic materials and attempted successfully, to land them on a target an impressive distance from the launch line using scientific principles and accurate measurement.
The workshop, organised by Miss Goodfellow, guided our pupils through the science, construction and successful/safe launch of water rockets. Andrew demonstrated how science is enormously creative, gave the pupils opportunities to apply their previous knowledge and was very exciting and rewarding.
You can find out more specific details, and an incredible range of resources on NPL’s section on Water Rockets on their website.
