Spring time!!!

We made some beautiful spring landscapes.

We used coloured chalk and with our fingers we were able to blend the colours we needed. We used different shades of green and blue to make it look realistic.

Look at the waves in the river!!

Our landscapes almost look like photographs!!!!!

More rockets!!!!

In art we made rockets!!!! They look very realistic!!They even have fire shooting out of the bottom of them!!!


We are learning lots about space in our class. We wanted to find out how a space rocket moves so we made our own!!!!

All you need is ballons, sellotape,straws and string.

The force of the air shooting out of the end of the balloon pushed our rockets forward and along the string. It is like the way that the force of the fire coming out of the end of a real rocket pushes it up through the sky.

you can see how the balloon is pushed across the string>>>>>>>>

We had rocket races to see who had the fastest rocket. It was lots of fun.

Rainbow fish

Our class read the story of the rainbow fish. This is a lovely story about a beautiful fish in the ocean who learns to share and make friends. We all can see how important it is to share and have friends at school.

For art we designed our own rainbow fish and made beautiful scales of all colours to decorate them.

We made beautiful designs using marbling this week. First we got a basin of water and then we added a few drops of marbling ink to the water. The ink is lighter than water so it floats on top of it. We swirled the inks around to make a lovely pattern and then dipped in an A4 page to capture the colour. We have some lovely pictures!!!

Our fish pond!!

We made a maths game for our classroom using magnets!!first we coloured and cut out some fish for our pond, then we wrote a maths sum on the back of each fish

e.g. 20 - 3 = ? Can you work it out???

We stuck a paperclip on our fish. Then we made a rod using a magnet, some string and a stick.

Our game is called "Go fish!" if you catch a fish with a rod and answer the sum correctly you keep it. The child with the most fish at the end wins!!!We had lots of fun playing!!!!

fun with magnets!

We had more fun with magnets this week!!each group was given a box of items such as scissors, paperclips, wool, thumbtacks, counters and pencils.
Each group had to predict whether each item would be attracted to the magnet or not.
When we finished our predictions we used a magnet to test each item.
We guessed correct for alot of them!!!

Last week we did alot of work with magnets. We explored the classroom to find different things that were attracted to magnets. We know that metal is attracted to magnets and sticks to them. We found lots of things that are made of metal. Here are some of the things we tested.
Can you guess which have metal and which do not????
