Our messy theme continues......... today we have made our own bubble mixture for bubble printing. We were very excited by the size and amount of bubbles we were able to blow and then print on to paper.
We had an amazing start to our new topic by having a messy morning and what a mess we made! But so much fun!
We have enjoyed hibernating whilst listening to stories and lullabies for 'hibernation day'. We have made clay hedgehogs and a hibernaculum for them to sleep in.
After reading the Three Billy Goats Gruff we decided to make a bridge out of paper for the goats to cross. We looked at the properties of paper and then we changed the paper to try and make it stronger for the goats to cross. We enjoyed testing the bridges to see how many goats each of our bridges could hold. No goats were harmed during the testing!
Friends of School came into class today to help us design and make a scarecrow for the Doddington Hall Scarecrow Competition that is taking place over half term.
We went out in the garden area and made a figure from clay and other natural materials. We then worked in teams to make a castle for them to live in.
In Maths we have been comparing numbers using the greater than and less than signs. We used lolly pop sticks to make the signs.
In Design and Technology we have been making Rapunzel's tower and adding a working winding mechanism to it so the prince and witch can climb Rapnzel's hair.
We have selected and used the equipment independently and appropriately for the different tasks throughout the making process.
