# Firework poems and Rocket pictures

We used interesting adjectives and exciting verbs to describe fireworks for our shape poems.
We were learning about 2D shapes in maths and used these to make our colourful rocket pictures.

# Shape Maths

We have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes in maths. We did work on 2D shapes last week to link with Bonfire night when we made some super firework/rocket pictures using 2D shapes. This week we have been learning about 3D shapes and here we are making different 3D shapes using construction kits.

# Happy Halloween!

Here we are again on Friday all dressed up in our super Halloween costumes. Today we have been making pumpkins and witches/bats/zombies from our painted paper plates!

# Halloween Craft!

On Wednesday afternoon we enjoyed some Halloween craft activities. Here we are making fluffy cotton wool ghosts and spooky spiders as well as painting paper plates to make pumpkins and witches later on in the week.

We had already been working in our new groups to create our Halloween Critters! We have been learning about different kinds of adjectives to write character descriptions for our critters.

# Drumming with Joy!

What a super end to the first term! Everyone had a great time drumming with Joy. We hope she can come again soon!

# One more completed model

Lottie Mae was off yesterday so here she is with her model.

# Completed toys!

Here we are trying out our completed models!

# Making toys which need a push or pull force

We all designed a toy which uses a push or pull force to make it work. Here we are making our toys.

# Another forces experiment!

Today we did another forces experiment. This was a catapult test! We had to stretch the elastic band back to 3 different distances and fire a cardboard missile! We then had to measure and record our results. This time we had to measure much longer distances and needed to plan carefully how to do this. All the groups were very good at planning what to do, sharing the equipment and ensuring it was fair and everyone got a turn.
