Class 4 were recently set the task of making a bag for a fairy.
We were set the challenge of making a clay pot for Cinderella to keep her treasures in.
Class 4 embarked on the design technology project of our Dimensions “happily ever after” theme this week.
Class 4 have loved their Design Technology project this term – to make their own wheeled vehicle.
Over the last few weeks Year 4 have been creating Egyptian Death Masks! Today was the papier-mache stage.
Lots of mess, laughter, squeals of sloppiness and more laughter later and we have 22 masks drying and ready to paint after half term!
Year 3 spent their last afternoon of the half term in the sunshine erupting their amazing paper-mache volcanoes!
In their groups they added 3-4 teaspoons of baking powder and some warm water and food colouring to make the eruption look like real lav. Then they poured in some vinegar until it fizzed and bubbled over the top of the volcano!
This morning Class 3 made the most of the sunshine and took our last Design & Technology lesson of this half term outside!
All term we have been looking at how to make a wheeled vehicle. We have researched axels, axel holders and wheels as well as how they work. We have designed our own vehicles and this week we worked in groups to bring our designs to life!
We spent a lovely lesson on the yard, painting our vehicles in beautiful bright colours ready for our very own Wacky Races this afternoon!
Year 4 recently created chariots in DT. They designed them, built them and then of course raced them! We had an ultimate champion from each class- it was very competitive.
Class 7 have been building their own volcanoes today. They worked in pairs to create the structure using paper-mache, and in the coming weeks we will paint and (hopefully) erupt them. A very messy afternoon but great fun was had by all! 🌋
Year 6 have been discovering The Vikings this half term. For our DT project we are designing, planning, making and evaluating Viking Long Ships.
