Reading!

We love our OTTER Time!

Levers and pivots with lolly sticks and counters!

More fun this week, writing persuasive letters to Dragons' Den about our fantastic toy creations.

 

We continue to look at extra features for our vehicles and so today, we investigated levers and pivots. 

 

Lots of fun with some lolly sticks, pencils and counters!

Our new topic is very exciting! It's called Toy Story and while we learn some of the history of toys, our focus is DT (Design Technology). We will be making our own vehicles and catapults! 

 

Last week, we looked at what we needed to do to build a stable structure - we had great fun with marshmallows and spaghetti!!

 

This week, we made catapults using garden canes and elastic bands. The children were able to compare and evaluate last week's structures with this week's ones.

Catapults!

Our marshmallow and spaghetti structures!
