Designing our buildings
As part of our DT work, we are creating models of earthquake-proof buildings. Today we worked in groups to design them using a specification and our knowledge of techniques engineers use in real life. We will be creating these Wednesday afternoon.
If the children would like to bring in additional materials (the majority are already in school!), they may bring in:
- Cardboard boxes (such as cereal or shoe boxes)
- Cardboard tubes (from kitchen rolls or wrapping paper - not toilet rolls please!)
- Bottle caps
- Plastic containers
- Bubble wrap
Please ensure any materials that are brought in are clean and have no sharp edges.
Many thanks :)
Fire safety workshop
Rip Roaring Reads
This week has been Healthy Minds week within school. We have focused on what mental health is and how we can make sure we keep ours healthy. We even took part in some mindfulness and yoga activities!
Our Science Week Artwork
We all completed our own artwork based on the Japanese artist, Hokusai. We did this by first sketching our designs; experimented with different mediums; and then added colour. We had to make sure we followed Hokusai's artistic style and conventions.
Can you spot your artwork?
5/6T had a fantastic afternoon taking part in the Sea Safe workshop on Sidmouth seafront. Even if we did get caught in a colossal down pour on the way there!
We learnt all about keeping safe on the beach, the impact of taking part in a 5 minute beach clean (we found all sorts of rubbish ourselves!), the different sports we can take part in at the beach and got to visit and learn about Sidmouth Lifeguard Centre.
Many thanks to Guy from Jurassic Paddle and the Sidmouth Rotary Club for funding and supporting this fantastic opportunity for the children!
Getting to grips with Bug Club
This afternoon, we all tried out Bug Club as a way to support our reading. We all really enjoyed it and can’t wait to show our adults at home.
