We have enjoyed our start to the Spring Term. We have been busy learning all about our new topic ĎHere comes the Suní and have completed lots of different science experiments and DT projects. Our favourite science experiment involved learning about our senses. We completed activities without our sight and hearing. Look at what we made using Playdoh while wearing a blindfold!
During DT lessons we have looked at famous engineers and the structures they have designed. First of all, we made bridges and soon realised that shape has a lot to do with how strong a structure will be. The strongest paper bridge we made could hold 185g. Next, we looked at towers and learnt that a larger base would help a tower stand up. We folded, rolled and cut pieces of paper to try and make the tallest tower. Two girls managed to build the tallest tower by slotting parts of an A4 sheet of paper together. Clever thinking girls!
As always, we have embraced new learning challenges and are very proud of our 2x and 5x table learning. We have solved problems involving division and time and have enjoyed challenging ourselves with Miss Dunsterís challenge cards.
