This week in 8s we have created our own clay tree decorations. We rolled out the clay and used Christmas cookie cutters to create our shapes. We left them to dry then decorated them with paint and glitter. We can’t wait to see them hung on our Christmas trees at home!
This week we have created some Marshmallow snowmen. We use different sized marshmallows, yummy chocolate sticks and edible cake pens to create our designs.
These were great fun to create but even more fun to eat!
In 8s we have been making our own standing string Christmas trees.
We first made a cone using card and wrapped this in clingfilm.
We mixed PVA glue and water and soaked the string in the mixture.
We then wrapped this around the cone and added sequins and glitter.
Once these had dried we removed the cone inserts and cling film to create a standing string Christmas tree.
We are very proud of the results!
Pupils in 9D have been designing eco-friendly bags for life in our Textiles lessons this term. The bags had to be colourful, with a sea-life theme. We have all completed research into this topic before finalising our designs. This week we enjoyed using fabric pens to add our designs to our bags – we think they look great, and can’t wait to start using them!
This week in our life skills session we have made jacket potato’s with a choice of fillings. The pupils were able to prepare their potato prior to cooking and select the filling of their choice. Some of our pupils have tried new foods for the very first time!
Today in Geography we used ingredients to show how lava turns into volcanic rock. Thank you Miss Devonport for your excellent demonstration and providing the ingredients. The class cannot wait to try the result of the experiment!
