As the school year comes to an end, we hope you will look back on your time at Howard with fond memories. Please do keep in touch with us! We want to hear all about your new secondary schools. Don’t forget, when the time is right, we will have our Leavers’ Disco to look forward to. We know that each of you will thrive at your new school and be successful later on in life. Keep smiling and we will see you soon!

The Big Fat Quiz of the Year –
How well do you really know Howard Primary School? Let’s put your knowledge to the test with this fun and exciting quiz!
Extension: Can you create your own Howard quiz?
Spaghetti and marshmallow challenge –
Do you know about the Spaghetti Tower Marshmallow Challenge? Set up a Spaghetti Marshmallow Challenge with young children to explore the design process: thinking, doing, prototyping, and iteration: a great STEAM challenge.
If you have any marshmallows left over from the Microwave Marshmallow Experiment, this is the project for you!
This is one of those legendary team-building challenges, but due to social distancing, our children will be completing it independently.
It encourages the design mindset and supports basic engineering principles.
The basic idea is that a team is given a handful of supplies to work with — spaghetti, tape, and string — and given 18 minutes to build the tallest possible tower that can SUPPORT a marshmallow.
Good luck! Send us your pictures on Dojo!
