The first three characters tell you in what country the vehicle was built. The fourth through eighth character tells a lot about the type of car, it's chassis and model. The ninth digit is called a check digit which essentially is added for redundancy and to catch any identification errors that may have occurred in the letter and number sequence. The last characters, number tenth to seventeen tells more about the vehicle, it's engine and/or transmission, etc. Each manufacturer uses it's own set of numbers and letters for descriptive purposes.
What if your child starts receiving credit card applications in the mail? This should create a red flag in your mind. Credit card applications typically only arrive after a new credit file has been opened in your name. Note: If your child falls victim to identity theft , there are credit card monitoring services specifically designed to help.
We went on Wednesday 13th December to the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. Mr Woodward drove us in the school minibus. Students from both Nurture groups, Sunstone and Citrine went with Mrs Smith and Mrs Hopkins as well as Mr Woodward.
We went to take part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) workshop, which looked at the different materials used to make aircraft over the last 100 years.
We were able to test the different materials such as wood, metal, fabric, carbon fibre, leather and honeycomb composite to see if they were flexible or stiff and rigid. This tied in with what we had been learning about materials in our science lessons. We also tested how strong the materials were by standing on them.
They day was fantastic and it was great to be able to use the learning we had done in school to help us with the workshop activities.
