We have made sandwiches. We have designed and made a sandwich that Mr Grinling would like to eat for his lunch. We then used a knife safely to cut out sandwich.

In D&T we have been exploring light bulbs and batteries. We made a simple circuit to make a bulb light up! This bulb would be able to shine bright in Mr Grinling’s lighthouse.

We had a fantastic trip today. We went to Touchstones for a Victorian Experience. We experienced what it was like to be a child at school in the Victorian Era. We also got to use everyday objects from the Victorian Era.

This week has been ‘Artist Week’. We have learnt about the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh, focussing particularly on the famous painting Starry Night. We first did some colour mixing before transferring our skills onto a black and white version of ‘Starry Night’. We then created our own version or Starry Night using some interesting ways of creating the stars before using oil pastels to finish our art work. We are very proud of the work we have produced.
