    Year 5 Maths Challenge (Prachi Ghori)

    On Tuesday 9th May a selection of Year 5 children were invited to take part in a maths challenge held at Thorndown school. Our first round was team round 1,  we began at a good pace and kept it up throughout the round. 

    Then the next round started which was the memory round. Two of our members chose to go up and observe the mathematical picture (one at a time). Rhys went up first getting us about 1/4 of the picture done. Then, Daniel went up and gave us some more of this picture . After that, both of them went up to have a look we got more and more of this picture and soon after time was up. 

    After those two rounds we got a break to have biscuits and juice.

    The third round was the estimation round. We got to examine a tooth brush and had to estimate how long it was and the mass of it. Though our mass was a little off we had the best estimation part. We got a map of Cambridgeshire and we had to estimate the length, width and area in kilometres . Then we got onto the next round.

    The next round we struggled with because we only had about 2-3 minutes to solve each of  the six questions but we still got most of them. Though we were rushing a lot ,we made a great effort with this round. We are proud of what we did in the Maths Challenge. Certificates were handed out and each school had one. Westfield earned a certificate for the memory round.

    Thank you to Miss Smith and Mrs Edgley for supporting us while we were there.

    Science Week 2023 (Mr Fenton 6CF)

    The Westfield Science Week has been in full swing this week.

    The main event for the week has been the visit of The Plane Guy to the school with his working Coyote II aircraft.

    Andre, The Plane Guy, has been explaining how the aircraft works, and how the different control surfaces on the vehicle effect the way that it moves through the air.

    "I liked going inside the plane and learning how the flaps worked."

    "I liked that when we moved the lever in the plane the elevators at the back moved"

    Pupils, staff and even parents have enjoyed the opportunity to sit behind the controls of the aircraft.

    We also had our paper aeroplane competition, with planes being entered into three main categories: furthest distance, longest flight time and most creative design.

    The winners in each category will be announced in assembly this Friday.

    There has also been a wealth of science taking place throughout the school thiss week, from joining in with live lessons from the science museum, to experiments with light, and even some dissections!

    We can't wait to do it all again next year,

    Mr Fenton

    We've been out making the most of the wind this afternoon! 

Eco Explorers Book Swap
Eco Explorers Pond Area
  • Fri 11th Mar

    Friday 11th March (Mrs Carder 4MC)

    It may seem like a load of old logs to you - but as it decays, this pile of logs  will become home to a huge variety of invertebrates. The logs (donated by St Ives Town Council) have been  carefully stacked in the pond area. As the logs decompose, invertebrates will eat, rest and live in the rotting wood which in turn will encourage other animals and birds to take up residence. 

Eco Explorers Tree Planting

    Saturday 5th March (Mrs Carder 4MC)

    Eco Explorers supported Groundworks East plant over 50 native saplings at Hill Rise Park. The trees will form a natural corridor between the two wooded areas that buffer the park. Despite the rain and th cold, a good time was had by all. Eco Explorers are proud to know that the trees they have planted will have a long lasting impact on the environment and everyone that uses the park.
