To begin our technology work this term, the Year 5 children had a 30 minute challenge to make their own vehicle using some simple resources. Everyone worked brilliantly, thinking through the problems and rectifying mistakes. Great teamwork! Well done to Joshua and Jailyn who were our eventual winners with their vehicle for ‘Fishfinger Man’??!
There was a delicious smell coming from the EYFS building today as Reception made their own gingerbread men! We followed a set of instruction and added some smarties and chocolate chips for decoration. The children thoroughly enjoyed eating them at home time.
After reading the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff we decided to make our own bridges for the goats to cross the river. We predicted which materials would be the most suitable for a bridge and tested them out to see if our predictions were correct.
Mollie-Mae, Seraphina, Leo, Ollie and Kaiden also made some fantastic bridges at home.
Year 6 have made and tasted a recipe used to make a sweet spread used instead of jam during the war. The ingredients were a bit strange: cold mashed potato, cocoa powder and sugar! When we’d mixed the ingredients, we spread it on bread and braved the taste. Some children loved it and ate the bread and what was left in the bowl while others said it was like a ‘bush tucker trial’. Try it out – see what you think!
Well, after collecting our resources last week, this afternoon we have created our mini woodlands. We were all so excited and very proud of the end result. We are now going to be using them to create a map with a key. Well done Mrs Stillwell’s class!
As our topic this half term is ‘The Enchanted Woodland,’ we have been outside again to collect materials to make our very own mini woodland next week. You can tell by our faces that we had an amazing time. Have a look at our blog to find out more.
