In art we have been creating WW2 Battle of Britain silhouettes.
We have learnt to use water colour paints to create a sunset style back ground. Then we used black sugar paper to make our silhouettes.
As you can see our results are stunning.
On the first day of our new year 5, the children were set a challenge of making a bridge using only:
8 pieces of A4 paper
3 pieces of A3 paper
5 pieces of card
and a large piece of sugar paper.
Working in teams they had to design and build a bridge that would hold 5 school books for 2 minutes. Both year 5 classes took this challenge head on and made some amazing bridges, all holding the books and lasting the full 2 minutes.
Both classes have settled in beautifully, forming lasting friendship's and beginning to think about their future ahead.
