In Science, we’re looking at living things. We planted marigolds and petunias to see how they grow and develop.

In Science, we have been looking at plants and their reproductive system. We cut open daffodils to find the different parts!

Here is the recipe we used:

Here are our finished Viking longships!

We have been learning about the Vikings so used papier-mΓ’chΓ© to make our own Viking helmets!

In Science and DT, we made torches!

In Art, we used clay to create our own Viking longboats!

We have created artwork to decorate and brighten the corridors at the hospital!

As part of British Science Week, we took part in a 'Create an Insect' Competition. This involved creating an insect using only paper and scissors! Here are our creations.

Merry Christmas!

In DT, we have been making electrical toy cars which move by themselves. Today we tested them! See below for videos!

Art - we created self portraits using fabric in the style of Valerie Wilson!

In Science, we have been looking at levers and investigating how moving the falcrum/pivot (hinge/base) allowed different weights to balance! We found out when the falcrum is nearer the heavier weight, we needed a smaller amount of weight on the other side to make it balance.

Some yoga to end the week!
