In groups, the children have started to construct their volcanoes. They will learn how to stabilise the structure and use layers to create their desired shape for the volcano.
We used our fine motor skills this afternoon to bang pins into cork boards using a wooden hammer. We were making Emergency Vehicles with 2D shapes.
Look at our emergency vehicles we made for home learning this week. We all got to talk about how we had made them and what we had used.
After learning about the First Christmas, children in Pips created their own Angel Gabrielle. They used their cutting skills to create a body, wings and head.
What a fun afternoon launching our rockets into the sky!! Can you spot Ms Wright getting scared and Miss Dimonaco getting soaked?
We have had a brilliant week researching, designing and making our own bottle rockets. We looked at existing models and aerodynamic features then used this to make our own. We made some amazing and interesting rockets, we certainly like to be individual 🙂
We tested the stability of our rockets by:
Flying our pencil-rockets with no fins twice.
Then testing it again twice with fins added to the same pencil-rocket.
We have been making paper straw rockets to help us design our final D&T project. We looked at the features of space rockets and then explored the need for a pointy nose cone and fins. We found out that these features help a rocket fly straighter for a further distance.
Each afternoon we have been looking at our own faces, our features and how we are the same or different, then we made a collage face.
Aspen Class are engrossed in creating a model catapult based on original Roman technology. They are also creating a Roman soldier to fire their missile at! 💥
