Year 6 Museum Visit

On Wednesday 9th October, Year 6 enjoyed a trip to the Oxford Natural History Museum. Through a workshop and an interactive tour the children extended their learning about evolution. There were opportunities to handle different specimens and explore how animals have evolved over time from fish. Everyone was engaged and were a credit to the school. Well done , Year 6!


Year six are very proud of the art work they have produced in the style of the artists Andy Warhol and Vincent Van Gogh.

The Ladygrove Stemettes...

...Welcome you to our 3rd Image result for stemillionsClub session.

This week we had a cackle at a Maths joke:

Image result for pi pie joke

And we focused on a Maths challenge, inspired by Dr. Eugenia Cheng - mathematician, pianist and best-selling author of books such as “How to bake Pi” (which teaches you mathematical principles through baking desserts!)

We were challenged to prove Pythagoras' Theorem (c² = a² + b²) by using Starburst sweets!

We managed to prove it, thinking carefully about how to approach the problem systematically and by collaborating effectively, listening to each others' ideas.

Stemillions Club comes to Ladygrove!

We have launched Ladygrove's Stemillions Club! This a weekly lunchtime club linked to Stemettes.org, which is an award-winning social enterprise working across the UK and beyond to inspire and support young women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths careers (known collectively as STEM).
Last week, we found out about the inspiring work of award-winning architect, Dame Zaha Hadid, and her life's achievements. Have a look here at her "unique and beautiful" buildings around the world on this link, Amelia said.
This week we tried being 'architects' and paper-engineered a 'Transforming Ninja Star'!
It was challenging but we completed one by collaborating and working together.
