Our trip to Tatton Park was FANTASTIC!
DT - In DT we have been finding out about different mechanisms. We have been finding out about winding, turning and hinge mechanisms. We followed a brief and created some superhero vehicles using a range of these mechanisms.
Computing - In computing we have been learning how games are made. We have been creating algorithms (sets of instructions). We have also been working as games testers and investigating how a range of games work.
Computing - In computing we have been learning about programming. First we gave each other directions. Then we gave the Bee Bots directions. Giving them instructions like this is called algorithms.
Superhero Stunning Start. We had a fab time dressing up as our favourite super heroes. Batman came and taught us some martial art moves which we could use with our super powers.
In Science we have been looking at lots of different plants. We put a flower in food colouring to see how water travels up the stem. We also submerged a leaf in warm water. We could see bubbles, which proves that leaves breathe and plants are living things. We have also started growing potatoes and Hyacinths.
Maths - We have been partitioning numbers into tens and ones. We have then been using these skills to help us add and subtract numbers.
Rangoli Patterns - Look at these great Rangoli patterns we created using lentils, coloured rice and beans!
