Design and Technology
We have been learning about bridges and have designed and made a suspension bridge out of art straws and lolly sticks. We then had to test the bridges with toy cars to see if they could hold weight and that the car could travel along them. We learnt about struts and triangulation to use in our building.
We have been learning about LS Lowry and have been practising drawing faces accurately and drawing people in the correct proportion. We have looked at lots of LS Lowy's paintings and discussed how he used shapes and colours to create emotion in the people and backgrounds. Below are some examples of the plasticine people we made.
We also enjoyed our sessions doing Relax Kids. We learnt activities to help us relax and process our difficult emotions. We especially enjoyed the quiet reflective sessions at the end of the class.
