During our art lessons we have been learning all about Andy Goldsworthy and the amazing land sculptures he creates.
Using Andy Goldsworthy as our inspiration, we created some lovely, natural collages using just leaves that we collected from outside. We found it quite difficult to create images using just leaves but eventually we got the hang of using the different colours and shapes of the autumn leaves to create lovely patterns.
In Science we have been learning all about materials and their properties.
We went on a material walk to discover what uses different materials had. We had great fun doing this but it also helped us to learn a lot. We discussed why differ not materials are suited for making different things, for example, we decided that a bench might be wooden because wood is a strong material. However, we thought plastic or metal might be better materials to make a bench out of as they are waterproof and so can be wiped dry if it rains.
This we are learning all about the Titanic.
We've really enjoyed this topic and have loved learning all about this incredible, gargantuan ship.
2L have discovered lots of interesting facts about the Titanic. We looked at the design of the ship and learnt all about J Bruce Ismay - we even had a go at designing and making our own Titanic ships out of Lego!
We have also learnt a little bit about some of the passengers on board the ship and created fact files for some of them. We looked at the different classes and decided we'd love to have stayed in first class because of how sumptuous the food is. Third class however wasn't so appealing because they had toilets next to their pillows! So we thought it would probably have ben very smelly.
We also did a P4C lesson about the Titanic. We thought about the first lifeboat that was launched with spare seats. We discussed what we would do in the same situation.
