    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Class 1 have been writing letters to send to Greenpeace to get more information about a variety of animals. We put them in an envelope and looked up Greenpeace's address. We talked about why we used stamps and posted all of our letters together. Hopefully we will get a response in the next few weeks!

    Science/Art - Clay Pollen Balls

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Today class 1 investiagted the purpose of pollen and how insects help to pollinate plants. We learnt that pollen usually looks like a yellow powder but looks very different under a microscope. We looked at images of pollen under a microscope and recreated its structure using clay. We noticed that most pollen are covered in spikes and recreated this using a pinching method.

    Art - 3D

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Class 1 create the front covers for their theme books today. We used recycled materials including old cardboard boxes and milk bottle lids to create 3D plants. The children first painted a background and built up their main image using the bottle lids. The children were careful to plan out their image by laying out the lids before gluing them to their final piece.
