Space Dome

As part of our Space Topic, we visited the Explorer Dome at the Village Hall. It was truly awesome!

The children were enthralled by what they saw - and the colours and shapes were wonderful to look at.

Making 3D Sculptures

Our work for the half term was to look at 3D sculptures, made by contemporary artists, using familiar items.

We had an interesting few weeks making a variety of abstract and figurative models. Here is an example of what we did - but there are more photos in the children's portfolios.

Bridges

In our Science work we were investigating how some materials can be made stronger, just by folding. The children were given 8 pieces of paper to build a bridge that would take a car from one end of their drawer to the other. Some were able to fold it easily - and realised what made it stronger - others found it more frustrating!

Babushka

Robins and Kingfishers worked hard to create the Christmas production of Babushka. The children all performed their parts on Tuesday and Wednesday to very appreciative audiences. We, as staff, were very proud of their achievements. IMG 1012IMG 1015IMG 1026IMG 1032IMG 1062IMG 1064IMG 1066IMG 1068IMG 1079IMG 1084
