Space Technology Day
We had lots of fun making our space buggies as part of our D&T curriculum.
We used motors, wiring and batteries to make our buggies move.
Parents and Carers came along in afternoon to help us decorate them.
Next week we are going to make trailers for the space buggies, which will include a CAM and lever, so they can carry out vital research on the moon or Mars!
Amphibians and insects Life Cycles
In Science this week we have been learning all about the life cycles of Amphibians and Insects.
We had to find clues to complete the life cycles of frogs, newts, dragonflies and butterflies.
Chalky planets in space
In Art we used chalk to draw and shade the planets in the correct order as they appear in our solar system.
We then used white and black chalk to create shadows and reflections on the planets.
To celebrate rememberance day and 100 years since WW1 ended, we learned all about how children contributed to the war effort.
We read a story about a boy called Reginald, who had to go and work in a textile factory because men had to go to war. Eventually, he had to give up his education and his interests, which he regretted later on in life. We wrote letters thanking Reginald and the other children for their effort in the war.
We also designed and made our own poppy designs.
On Monday, we visited the church to learn about all of the soldiers who died in the Westerhope area. Our letters were on display in the church too!
