The last couple of weeks, 5/6H have been producing some different pieces of artwork and design technology learning. They have focused on Olympic posters for painting and Olympic kits to design. The children tried really hard with the learning they produced.
As part of our DT project, we designed, made and evaluated our own Olympic medals in Y1/2B. We decided our medals must have the Olympic rings and the goddess of victory, Nike. They should be shiny and durable. They could have a ribbon attached, to wear around the neck. 🏅
This week we finished our DT project by making a moving London bus. We did an amazing job! We even used equipment to cut the dowel for our own axels.
This half term the children have worked incredibly hard to research, plan, design, make and evaluate their own London Bus with moving wheels. The resilience, problem solving and teamwork these children have shown has been amazing and is reflected in the excellent outcomes they produced.
Today as part of Design Technology and Maths, 6H designed and created pulleys which acted as flagpoles to raise flags. We discussed how a flagpole is used at the Olympics which we are participating in this week. Everyone worked well together to complete the problem solving challenges.
As part of our learning about healthy bodies and design technology, we created our smoothies which we designed. We then evaluated the taste to see which were good products. IMG_7817
This week we have been researching foods for healthy smoothies so that we can use them for leaving events later in the year. The testing was for flavour combinations and looking at the health benefits of the fruit so that we can then design smoothies and test out how they taste.
Today 6B has tried a wide range of fruit, taking notice of the tastes, textures and combinations of flavours. Children carefully considered which fruits would work best in smoothies and started to plan a new product. They then researched the health benefits for their chosen fruits as our topic is all about me and our […]
Today the children have been investigating the best shape for a Viking longboat. They created their prototypes and then tested them out. We then created a RUBRIC for our initial design.
In Ks1 this week the children have created their own Robo bugs which have a series of special functions. The children really enjoyed the planning, creating and evaluating the process. Well done Y1/2P I can’t wait to see them around school. I know Mrs Slack loved making hers.
In our DT lesson this week, the children explored and evaluated a range of vegetables in preparation for soup making. We tried a variety of raw and cooked vegetables, letting our senses help us with our evaluations. Using cocktail sticks to handle each item of food, we considered the smells, textures and flavours. We rated […]
In our DT lesson today, we explored and evaluated a range of vegetables in preparation for soup making. We tried new things and let our senses guide us. Using cocktail sticks to handle the food items, we described what they smell like, feel like and gently put them on our tongue to see what flavour […]
We are so proud of our children’s resilience this term and wanted to showcase the outstanding outcomes that have been created, drawn or written. Here is a portfolio of the Year 6 learning so far we hope you enjoy.
Y4/5D have started making their Santa cups for the Christmas Fair. They really liked creating their design and making their final product.
Y3/4P have loved making vegetable soup this week. The children really enjoyed learning all about the vegetables and cooking technique. Here they are in action learning all about survival ready to write their instructions.
As part of our healthy lifestyle week, Mrs Parkin ( teacher at Wingfield Academy) was going to be coming in to teach the session. Unfortunately, she was unable to come in, but that didn’t stop the lesson happening with Mrs Parkin joining remotely. The class were taught about grain, whole grain, and how fibre is […]
Well done everyone for making your space mobile this week.
Fantastic learning from Jared who created a Plague Doctor mask. Well done!!
The children in 1/2WB have amazed me so far this week with their wonderfully creative responses to one of the home learning tasks that has been set for this week. The children planned, made, played their own games. They will evaluate them later this week. Well done, these photos have been a pleasure to look […]
Today Mr Purshouse and Mrs Baum have had a wonderful day, they started with Joe Wicks to get the body warmed up and then went out on a mini beast hunt to see what they could find around school. I think there was some sibling rivalry. Then they made musical instruments and tested them out. […]
This week we have been learning how to make catapults. We have been so resilient and can not wait to test them out! We are going to test which design is the best and record our results in a table.
Y3/4P made a model to show the 4 layers of the earth this week.
Our Children in Year 6 were discovering how light travels and were given various materials in order to make a periscope, The focus for today’s learning was to – recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they […]
Developing our school grounds with our gardening club. Tonight they are busy developing their design and technology skills. Planning, designing, making and evaluating. Well done everyone excellent teamwork skills.
We have been constructing towers to try and make a tower that is the strongest and sturdiest. We thought about the design of towers we have seen and how this might help us with our design. To make the towers we used marshmallows and spaghetti.
In DT this term we thought about how we could feed animals through the winter. We discussed the importance of making food available to animals when it is cold and icy. We decided to make our own bird feeders. We used lard and bird seed to create fat balls and we used apples and seeds […]
Y1/2WB have been working hard making bird feeders. Mr Clark has been busy putting them outside our classroom, and we are hoping to attract lots of wild birds. We have created a bird watching station in our classroom to sit and take some time to observe any birds that come to enjoy our feeders. I […]
