Outdoor Learning Day
Aquila enjoyed their first outdoor learning day of this year.
The children were set the challenge of making parabolic circles using string and stakes.
They first had to figure out how they could make a perfect circle using only the equipment in front of them.
They worked it out by putting a stake where they wanted the centre to be and then pulling out the string around it to form a perfect circle.
Next, they had to bang in the rest of the stakes at an equal distance apart, ensure they tied the string properly in an accuarate pattern and look at it from a distance to make sure it was working out properly.
And here is the finished product! Brilliant team work!
