Before we start developing our own recipes, we taste tested bolognese sauce from jars. We rated their appearance, texture, smell and taste before we studied the ingredient list and nutritional values. There was a clear divide in results.

Year 3 have had so much fun making their pneumatic toys. We made lots of animals including some crocodiles, dogs, turtles and even a Pudsey bear! We have definitely learnt that air has the power to make something move!

Year 4 built their own torches out of a range of different materials  We used the bottom of a plastic bottle to create the housing. Then we made the reflector out of the top half by wrapping it in tin foil. Finally, we had to add the electrical elements

We are making smoothies in DT but before we can we needed to explore fruits and veg! We were surprised to find that some foods we thought were vegetables are actually fruits and we know this because they have seeds! After we grouped the foods, we tried some too!

We had a great session with @Littlefoothq. First we went on a bug hunt! We then showed great resilience through using our hand-eye coordination to carefully hammer nails into wood! We ended the session by collecting sticks for our own fire  #RPEnrichment

For forest school with @Littfoothq we had to build structures that were strong enough to withstand challenges of Joe trying to knock them down. We discovered that the strongest towers aren’t always the tallest and need a really strong base!  #RPEnrichment

In DT we created a range of structures in different shapes. The children ensured their structure was strong and stable by reinforcing the corners. They showed great perseverance to analyse what happened if their structure broke #RPDT
