To kick start our topic ‘Space’ we had a ‘WOW’ day where we took part in lots of Art and D&T activities. We had a special visitor called Mario who bought along his inflatable planetarium. Inside, we were able to see the night sky projected on the ceiling. We learned lots about different stars, planets and constellations. Our topic this term is ‘Space’. We’ve had some amazing examples of homework so far. Sophia made some delicious ‘galaxy cupcakes’ at home to share with the class. Aurora made a model of our solar system, complete with 3D painted planets. Aurelia also made a model of our solar system, with a big 3D sun.
During Art, we created splatter paint planets using different techniques such as dabbing, splattering and mixing paint. Of course, we added glitter to make our planets look extra special! During D.T, we created our own ‘clayliens’ (clay aliens). We haven’t painted them yet, but we can’t wait!
In literacy, we are learning to write instructions. We made our own fruit rockets, complete with watermelon nose cones. We are going to write up our instructions for how to make them. They were so tasty!
