This is Professor Fluffy!
She is a Professor in Engineering from Liverpool University
who came to introduce us to life at College and University.
She helped us to find out lots of things about life after we finish at Secondary school.
Her friends Tina and TJ from Newman University college came to help us with the activities.
We even had a Graduation as students leaving university would do!
In a few weeks we will visit Newman University College
and take part in some lectures and seminars to see what they are like.
We really hope some of our parents and carers will come with us too!

On Monday we went to King Edward VI Five Ways school to learn about Rockets as part of National Science and Engineering week. We had a really super time and learnt a lot too! We made some rockets using an empty film canister, an Alka Seltzer tablet and some water. We made quite a mess and the canisters were shooting off towards the hall ceiling!! We also made some rockets out of cardboard and launched them across the playground using a compressor. The ones made by us flew the highest and the furthest. We also had chance to see a real space rocket called “Starchaser” that will be sent into space later this year. We were disappointed that we couldn’t go inside it though! Have a look at some of the photographs below.
We had to measure the water very carefully!
It was difficult to measure how high the Alka Seltzer rockets went.
We had to use selotape when making rockets out of cardboard.
We used a tube and added fins and a cone shaped nose to make our rockets.
Our rockets shot right across the playground and onto the field!
The space rocket was huge! We really wanted to see it launched!
Congratulations to the following children who have achieved the next stage of their tables challenge:
