To finish off our 2D and 3D maths topic we used nets to make individual tetrahedrons (a shape made from 4 equilateral triangles). We used 4 tetrahedrons to create another, larger tetrahedron and then 4 of these to make an even bigger one! Great job P4/5.
P3/4 started with the human body topic this term. We began with the skeleton. We investigated what a skeleton may look like by feeling our own bodies and drawing it down onto paper. We used our shared reading time to find out more about the layout and names of the skeleton bones. Each topic time we add a new bone we have learned to Bony Tim, our class skeleton!
Over the past few days, we have been learning about Op Art and some of the most famous Op Artists.
They have also spent a lot of time and effort creating their own op art image, colouring it and then shading and tinting it. I think their finished op art looks fabulous!
We are trying to make the biggest tetra-tree-dron we can from lots of smaller tetrahedrons. We are getting there but still need to make some more!
It was Christmas Party time on Monday.
Since then, it has been down to business! P6/7 have been using their literacy, numeracy and design skills to create gas masks.
More to come!
