10C Exploring paint effects

As part of a creative studies project we have been experimenting with different paint effects.

We explored using dilute acrylics, smearing them and then using a hairdryer to swirl the wet colours together…

We then examined the effect of smearing different acrylics together and overlaying them…

We then flicked paint crystals on wet paper and watched the colours mingle together…

Our project is nearly finished. Do you know what it could be about?

Until next time.

10C Display

We decided to make a new display in the classroom. First, we took the old one down, recycled the paper and put up a new background…

We then took images of ourselves and peers, on the iPad and altered them…

We then stuck our efforts onto our display…

Keep your eyes on the blog for the finished effort.

Until next time.

10C Animal Adaptations

In science, we have been learning about animal adaptations. Today we looked at some different adaptations. Animals have different adaptations to help them hunt and find food.

We explored how filter feeders eat food; how multi eyed creatures forage; and how adapted claws could work.

Until next time.

10C Scales

In maths, we have been learning about how to use scales to measure weight. We used both analogue and digital scales.

Until next time.

7R Circuits

In science, we have been learning about electricity. Today, we made some simple circuits, using wires, cells, bulbs and switches…

We used this equipment to make a range of circuits. Until next time.

10C Colourful Cooking

As part of our Creative Studies, we decided to mix art and food. We made a thick batter…

We then added a dab of colour…

We then cooked our colourful master pieces…

Our pancakes tasted as good as they looked.

Until next time.

1OC Bird Nest Flapjack and Fruity Caterpillars

In life skills, we have started a new topic on making decorative desserts. First, we made bird nest flapjacks; we made the flapjacks with oats, syrup and butter…

We then melted some white chocolate and decorated the nests with fruit…

We then made fruit caterpillar. We put a selection of fruit onto kebab sticks…

We then dotted their eyes with white chocolate…

I hope you like our efforts…

Until next time.

7H Liquids and Bubbles

In science, we explored and described liquids. First we explored the terms wet and dry…

We then used the terms full, empty and half-full when describing volumes…

We described the sound bubbles made as fizzes…

We then made bubbles different ways…

Until next time.

10C Massive magnetic monster moon heads

In science, we have been learning about magnetism. Today, we decided to make a game using magnets. We made monster images of ourselves, covered them in paper clips and used a magnet to fish them from a putrid pool…

Until next time.

7R Bubbles and Fizzes

In science, we explored bubbles and fizzes. We listened for the sounds of bubbles…

We looked at how we can make fizzy liquids, more bubbly…

We looked at how bubbles travelled, and what bubbles are…

We explored making too many bubbles…

We then looked at making bubbles (a gas), from baking powder (a solid) and vinegar (a liquid)…

Until next time.
