Crime in Oxford Grove!

There has been a crime at Oxford Grove Primary School!

Outside 1T, some porridge was stolen! Somebody broke into our school and stole a small bowlful of porridge!

Year 1 investigated the crime scene and found lots of clues. They decided to check the CCTV.

We discovered it was Goldilocks! She is up to her old tricks again!

Year 1 did some excellent suspect descriptions of Goldilocks to hand over to the police, and they will get back to us when they detain the suspect.

Junior STEM Lego Workshop

Today we have enjoyed a workshop with Nick from Junior STEM. He has helped us to build our own fairground ride from Lego.

We used an axel and created a pulley system with a motor so that the ride could spin around.

We then used the WeDo app to program our ride. We could make it spin, change the spin speed change the colour of the light, make messages appear and lots more!
