Year 5 Learning Journey

PGL Caythorpe 2019

 

The Year 5 children have had the most wonderful week away at sunny Caythorpe.

A week full of challenging, team-building activities away from home, helped the children to develop in confidence and become more independent as individuals. Old friendships were further strengthened and some new friendships were made. PGL chants have been etched on our minds and won't leave us for a while.

Fun was had by all involved and these memories will stick with the children forever. A week to treasure all round. Caythorpe is awesome!

Thank you to all the wonderfully behaved children who represented Missenden perfectly and the dedicated staff who are simply the best.

STEM WEEK 2019 – 3D Printing, Coding, sketch-up and robotics

 

The children at Great Missenden School have had such an exciting STEM week 2019. The children were visited by a local engineer (Chris from Technet) who works closely with schools offering a wide range of workshops to inspire the next generation of inventors.

Following an introductory assembly about the benefits of 3D printing, coding and robotics, children from all year groups were given the opportunity to explore and play around with a range of different technologies, watch a 3D printer in action and create their own coding for robots. 

At the end of each session the children were fortunate enough to take their own 3D printed name tags or USB sticks home with them!

A fantastic week all round!

STEM WEEK Continued

 

Year 5 and 6 have had such an exciting start to their STEM week. After an introduction to what STEM week stands for (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) the children were joined by our guest visitor Mr Hoy from Cutting Edge in Pitstone. Mr Hoy asked the children to design a clock. The best designs from both year groups were selected and within the space of an hour they had been drawn onto a CAD program and cut into a 3-D clock made from the plastic Corian. The process involved using computing skills to redraw the designs and understanding how the mathematical coordinates were relevant to the cutting machines. We then sent the winning designs to the Cutting Edge workshop by email and watched the whole manufacturing process via a Skype link to the workshop. It was a sensational day – so many young inventors were inspired! A HUGE thanks to all the staff at CUTTING EDGE for their voluntary support.
