A group of our Year 5 pupils were set a challenge to build a theme park rollercoaster, inspired by Liam’s adventures in Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

We descended on St Paul’s on Tuesday for an amazing day of science and investigation.
The Mad Scientist started by making dragon’s breadth. Then he showed us how to see air …. with a lot of fire and smoke and vortex generators.

Later on we took it in turns to present our own work. We taught lots of schools what have leaned about making our model volcanoes erupt. St Teresa’s showed us how to make shadow puppets. St Gerard’s showed us how to make electrical switches. St Paul’s taught us about acids and alkalies and St Clare’s showed us how to make slime – yeugh!
Well done to all the children who entered this competition. The entries are displayed in the hall. The quality of work was amazing, with some beautiful and creative ways of showing your knowledge. Prize winners to be announced soon.
