Up, up and away STEAM week looks at flight!

With a good degree of yaw and pitch STEAM week got off to a flying start with a Year 5 & 6 fly to the line foam board glider challenge. Many frantic moments later the year groups were ready to test their designs cut from a single A3 sheet. At the upper end of the school Year 7 & 8 were cutting and shaping their rocket cars ready for blasting.

Midweek saw the whole school paper glider fly to the line challenge with pupils from early years through to Year 8, and some competitive staff, all throwing their plane designs to try to reach the furthest point. During the week pupils at home were also fully involved investigating and evaluating plane designs and testing paper hot air balloons.

Our STEAM scholars were set the challenge of planning, creating and delivering presentations on aspects of flight and these were shown during form time.

In the Prep School water rockets were launched into the air with some interesting flight paths taken.

Blasting of Year 7 & 8 rocket cars later in the week saw speeds reached in excess of 80mph. Years 5,7 & 8 had the special privilege of two BA pilots (Mr. And Mrs Wayt) sharing their flying expertise and knowledge discussing jet streams, ailerons, turbulence, drag, thrust and airport logistics. Before the week’s departure the whole school was invited to participate in a birds of prey show involving owls, a buzzard and a falcon. The children were amazed at the subtle differences in the flying abilities of each bird and enjoyed asking questions that gave them a deeper understanding of natural flight.

A huge thank you to all children, teachers and parents for supporting and ensuring STEAM week was a great success.

We hope you all had a fabulous week and enjoyed it as much as we did. We look forward to future adventures.

Mr. Izzard and Mr. Agnew.

World Book Day

It’s been a busy week full of book related fun. To kick off Book Week The Library hosted a Book Hunt for the Prep School on Monday which saw the children hunting high and low for a selection of titles. On Tuesday it was Pre Prep’s turn as they took to the Astro to hunt for favourite book characters—I’m glad to say the glum weather did not dampen their high spirits! Prep School have been designing bookmarks during their library sessions with some fantastic designs created by our artistic pupils.

Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.

12 March 2020

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
