In our Design Technology lessons we have designed our own fruit salad and packaging. We then spent the morning making our fruit salad in our new DT kitchen before enjoying eat them.
Using cornstarch and water we made a non-newtonian mixture. This is a mixture which can be both solid and liquid depending on how it is handled.
Our engaging experience was a morning create mess using all different mixtures and substances. We used our senses (apart from taste) to describe our experience.
Using Skittles in groups we experimented using water to create different patterns by placing the skittles around the edge of a plate. To begin we made predictions about what we expected to happen, then we had to observe the changes which and then draw a conclusion.
We were lucky enough to be visited by The Gripping Yarns Production Company who told us a story all about how to be a good friend.
Towers, turrets and tunnels
We all thoroughly enjoyed our Halloween dress up day and school disco!
Using card we built our own castles with winding drawbridges, levers and pop up characters.
Paul Klee Inspired Art work
We have been exploring the work of Paul Klee, focusing on his work'Castle and Sun'. Using this piece as inspiration we created our own pieces for castles we had designed using oil pastels. We focused on using bold block colours and 2D shapes to create our art work.
We conducted an investigation to see which material would be best used in a catapult to destroy a castle. First we built our castle walls then using different materials (Paper, Card, Brick, Rock, Plastic) we took turns to try and destroy the walls and breach the castle.
Our Summer homework project was to create our own castles. Can you spot any towers, tunnels or turrets?
