Wow! What a busy day we have had today in Hedgehog Class! We began the day by giving our outdoor area a good clean and we were excited to see some special tyres for us to plant in and explore! We then got busy planting flowers and seeds and decorating pebbles and pots. We made pictures and patterns with the stones on the grass and even had a go at using them to make an outline of each other!
In the afternoon we enjoyed some more planting and we had a go at building a giant scarecrow! We had to think carefully about how to join it together and how to make it stable enough so that it didn’t fall over!
We had a fantastic day spent outside and we would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents who brought in pots, soil, flowers and seeds for us to use!
As part of our whole school bridge building day Squirrel class investigated different types of bridges. They designed, made and then evaluated their own bridge creations. Some great models and brilliant team work too, especially when it didn’t always go to plan!
As part of our Rivers topic work we designed and made our own boats using a variety of materials. Between us we created a great selection of different designs which we then tested out to see if they would float! This was great fun seeing how the boats did in the water!
In Science and Technology Club we started back with a Minecraft Lego Challenge! The children were asked to design and make their own Minecraft creation. Well done to the team, super co-operation and fantastic models created.
On Friday afternoons the Science and Technology Team have been set some interesting Design challenges! They have worked well together, experimenting with their different ideas. This week they were give Art straws and making tape, and asked to begin to create a solid and strong structure. The teams have come up with a variety of ideas and enjoyed testing them out!
We started with a photo of ourself. We then added different materials to help create a Tudor style portrait!
As part of our Tudor topic we decorated our own Tudor goblets.
