Today we continued exploring how our body digests food. It got pretty messy when we made our 'food' (bread and cola) travel through our 'intestines' (tights)!
Having some fun in the snow!
Discovering the different parts of the human digestive system was easier to remember if we made one ourselves. (I think the colours may not be accurate!!)
Year one have had a lovely time making advent wreaths.
Today we learnt how to play the Roman game of Rota - simple to play but takes a good level of strategy and skill to become a master! We will be holding rounds to find who are the champion players in the class... the challenge is on!
As part of our 'Sound' topic we have been looking at pitch. The challenge this morning was to make instruments that could play at different pitches when we blew, twanged, shook or hit them.
A noisy but fun morning!
As part of the STEM week work on light and shadows, Year 3 created shadows and drew around them to make some interesting artwork. Lots of fun!
As part of our DT and Science topic on circuits and electricity, Year 4 made their own versions of the game 'Mind the Buzzer'. Fist we made clay bases for the wire (of some amazing designs!), and then made the circuit. Finally came the fun bit... playing the games!
Year 1 have been exploring the work of Picasso in their Art lessons and creating their own self-portraits in his style.
They look amazing and very colourful!
We have been looking at the work of the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. She is famous for using dots in her artwork so we have been using her idea of her images of pumpkins to have a go at our own colourful creations.
Year 3 have been looking at the letter Pope Francis has written to the world - Laudato Si. This has given us the inspiration for artwork that will be used during our Harvest celebrations this Friday. So colourful!
This is the book we have been studying in English this term. The children created book reviews in pairs... and here they are!
