We explored the designs of William Morris and visited our school forest for inspiration. We sketched leaves, pine cones and various berries and then copied their shapes onto a polystyrene printing tile. Once our tiles were complete we created repeat prints
This week Year 2 are joining in the Love Music Trust workshop. We are learning how to use Chrome Music Lab.
Class 2 designed and made their own pinball machines using everyday materials
Our week continued…. we made pinball machines and then we conducted a nappy investigation.
As part of our Mighty Machine Day we investigated mechanisms such as levers and linkages…look at what we made.
On Monday International Women’s Day, we learnt about female scientists such as Mary Anning and ecologist Dr Margaret Lowman.
On Tuesday we investigated Biomimicry. We looked at inventions linked to birds and flight.
Then we made helicopters to investigate how they flew, it was different from a bird as they floated down.
Then we designed and made paper planes. They flew differently too, they glided through the air.
Today class 2 joined a zoom meeting with the characters from the Nativity Story. We asked questions and then did some art. A big thank you to the Churches Together Congleton School Team for a fantastic afternoon.
