Year Six Mars Rover DT Week!


As part of our Space topic in Year Six the children met a real NASA scientist Dr Green, who set the children a challenge to design and create a prototype model of a Mars Rover.

The children had to think accurately about measurements and the materials they would use as well as the processes of cutting, joining and finalising their piece.

Year Six Outdoor Week!

As part of our Space Topic, the children in Year 6 looked at the story War of the Worlds. Taking inspiration from this we looked at creating a number of art pieces and scientific structures based on insects and their habitats.
