In ICT we have been learning about computer inputs and outputs as well as how different computers can look. We made our own robots and wrote about what they might do and how to input that information.
Lots of fun was had by the Dragons, Cats and Unicorns !
We spent our cooking week preparing a wonderful feast for Mr Grindling.
This term we have been investigating materials and their suitability for different purposes. Today we talked about all the features a disposable nappy would need: waterproof exterior , soft comfortable and absorbent. We carried out tests on real nappies and also watched a clip about the tests in a real-life disposable nappy factory. After this we worked in teams to design and make the best nappy. We had a range of materials; plastic, cotton wool, sponges, towels, felt, tissue and paper towel. We also had some ‘ magic snow’ this powder absorbs water so behaves in a similar way to ‘sodium polyacrylate’ found in real nappies .
