On Tuesday 6th February, the Edmund Waller School Choir headed to the 02 to perform as part of a 7000 strong children’s choir. The children have been working very hard since September to learn 16 songs that lasted an hour! They took part in a 3 hour long rehearsal in the afternoon, followed by the concert for an audience of over 10,000 people in the evening. They sang absolutely brilliantly and they performed with great energy and enthusiasm!
This morning, we’ve extended our learning from yesterday by investigating how many different ways we can combine six squares to create a net of a cube. We also found lots of ways to join six squares that don’t make a net of a cube!
This afternoon in class we are experimenting with bulbs, motors and wires…we are making circuits. We are also modelling and building our machines that we have created. We have cardboard boxes, wooden sticks and many more materials to make our machines. Our machines are inspired by William Heath Robinson, who drew complex inventions.
