Lab_13 Gillespie news: ISS!

Assembly and committee

 

ISS8Maya and Lucy in Y3 investigated a question last week, the question was “how do you build a space station?” They shared their investigation in the assembly hall on Monday morning. Because Tim Peake is in space, they wanted to know more about the ISS (International Space Station). They investigated in Lab_13 where they built their own model of the ISS using a template (you can make your own – here it is: https://www.nasa.gov/pdf/616947main_Build_Station_Simulation.pdf). Assembly3Later on in the assembly they shared photos on a PowerPoint, then they did a quiz and tested our knowledge. Y5 also sang Space Oddity, a song by David Bowie, which Chris Hadfield sang when he was floating in the ISS. You can watch him singing it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaOC9danxNo

We’re not leaving!

Although many people applied to be in the committee most of them missed the deadline. Only one person handed in their application on time and that was Katie in yr6. The management committee interviewed her and asked her questions. We were impressed by how much she was dedicated to being in the management committee and we decided that she was in! So the old Y6s will stay and Katie will join us. We are looking forward to working with her.
