As part of STEM week, our Year Fives have been very busy creating their very own balloon powered vehicles. They were challenged to create a vehicle, in groups of three, that they believed would travel the furthest distance so had to think about factors such as aerodynamics, tyre traction and the different forces that would be in play. This led them to come up with lots of weird and wonderful creations!
My name is Mr Thompson and I am the class teacher in year 5 as well as the PE subject leader. This is going to be my second year teaching at Park and it is one that I am really looking forward to. Away from the classroom, I enjoy socialising with friends, going to the gym and taking part in a variety of sports.
