As part of our Design Technology, Sycamores designed and made papier-mâché crowns. We painted them and modelled them beautifully as you can see in the photos…
This week in Acorns we have been reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Jack left us some magic beans and a letter, with a challenge to plant and grow some seeds!
We planted pansy, cucumber and tomato seeds, and we have put them in a sunny spot to watch them grow. We are taking turns to water our plants each day, and hope to see some green shoots very soon!
Blueberries had a fantastic day for World Book Day dressed up as some of our favourite characters.
It was lovely to go to Oranges and share some books with our friends.
We all enjoyed choosing a new book to take home from The Fellgate Book Swap.
As part of our Amazing America topic Blueberries and Plums visited the Ice Bar in Newcastle to see lots of New York themed sculptures. There was iconic statues, sports teams and famous shops! A very cold morning but we all warmed up with a hot chocolate afterwards.
As part of our Changing Materials topic in science, Sycamores experimented by adding vinegar to milk. A chemical reaction occurred and produced a new material called resin. We shaped it and after a few days it went hard like plastic.
A few weeks ago, Sycamores visited Jarrow School to allow us to have a taster day in preparation for Year 7 when we transition to secondary school.
We had a great day experiencing typical lessons including: maths, music, English and science. In science, we dressed up as scientists and carried out an experiment to make rainbows in a test tube.
In DT, Sycamores tasted chocolates already available on the market to buy; then we designed our own; before having great fun with lots of ingredients to make them. Afterwards, we ate them. They were delicious!
