School Mission Statement

Creative thinking

In this section we will put ideas and links to develop lateral thinking, problem solving and creativity. 

All learning develops the brain and makes links so be creative and think outside the box. 

Have fun. Have a look at the Jodrell Bank website attachment  

Remember to keep active and develop your gross motor skills too. 

It will be tricky to continue with some aspects of 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4, but try some of the 100 things to do inside. 

Have a go at making the ultimate paper plane. See instructions below.  

Try making rainbows with water on a bright day. Can you learn a mnemonic to remember the order of the colours?  What scientists have talked about Theory of Light?Try pen chromatography  ~ get some felt tips and strong kitchen towel or coffee filter paper, water at bottom of a glass and a peg. Using a black pen , make  circle about size of 5p about 10 cm from bottom of your strip of paper. Dip the bottom of the paper ( not the circle ) into the water. Clip paper to top of glass. What happens as the water is absorbed by the paper and starts to move up to the ink in the circle ? What did you notice ? Are all pens the same ? Could you be a detective and find out if a certain pen wrote a note ?
