Bridges in DT

The children have been working hard, in pairs, to produce wooden bridges in DT.

They were given a design brief and from this they came up with a design criteria (it had to be able to fit a boat underneath but also be suitable for cars and pedestrians).  The children practised their skills and investigated how to strengthen structures before designing their own bridge. They then made and evaluated their bridges. The children used lots of skills along the way such as: joining, strengthening and sawing.

 

Here are some of their finished products!

Earth and Space art

In science we have been learning about Earth and space. As well as making 3D planets, the children created their own planet which forms part of a display in the hall. The children chose their pattern, colours and the materials they wanted to use such as: pastels, watercolours, chalk, sugar paper and pencils.

 

Ospreys have also created a piece of working showing the different stages of the moon.

Firework dances

Still image for this video
In dance we have been creating firework dances. The dances needed to include:
Shapes of different fireworks
Different levels
Different pathways
Fluid movements

Unfortunately, lots of the video files were too large to upload so here is a small selection of the dances.

CSI Day

 

To kick off the 'Crime & Punishment' topic for this term, we had a crime scene investigation day. The children were both suspects and investigators in a murder case and solved clues to find the culprit! We made EFIT images of suspects, took finger prints and did some code-breaking.

African Instruments

Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about African instruments and sound. We have investigated how sound is produced, how we hear, how sound travels, how sound can be blocked and how we can change the pitch and volume of sounds. We have also listened to samples of African instruments, played some and learnt about what the instruments are called, made out of, where they come from and how they are used. As part of this learning we made our own sound proof boxes and African instruments.

 

Below you will see some of our instruments - these are djembe drums, talking drums and shakeres. We used recycled materials such as yoghurt pots, plant pots and disposable cups to make the main body of the instrument. Some children painted their instruments while others tea stained them. To decorate and make them look as traditional as possible, the children used strings, painted designs, beads and silhouettes. We are looking forward to sharing them with you on Uganda day!
