China class D.T. project. Can I design my ideal playground?

China class have had a very busy week designing and making their ideal playgrounds. They learnt about aerial views and how to join different materials together. They also learnt how important it is to work together in partnership. I'm sure you'll agree that the finished products are amazing!

Vincent Van Gogh

We have spent this term studying Vincent Van Gogh. We found out when he was born and where he grew up. We discovered that he painted many different paintings and got to choose which one was our favourite. Most surprisingly, we found out that he didn't sell a painting while he was alive! Towards the end of this half term, we have focussed on his painting of the Sunflowers and tried to recreate the painting in the classroom. 

Science week 2021

As part of Science Week we have been trying new healthy foods. We used cucumber, carrot and olives to make a chick shape and we then used all our senses to try the food. Everyone in China class tried something new! Some of China class enjoyed the new flavours while others didn't but everyone tried it, which we are all really proud about.

China class did some art in the style of Kandinsky. It makes a colourful splash in our classroom.

Here are some of our firework sculptures inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. You will notice all of our work features a hole - just like Andy Goldsworthy!
