11W Halloween part 1

Today we picked a Pumpkin from our very own Pumpkin patch in the Sensory garden. As part of our topic “Growth” and our ASDAN Transition Challenge, we sowed the pumpkin seeds in March. We have looked after the plants so well they have produced a lovely big pumpkin for us to carve for Halloween. Pupils explored our super pumpkin, then we made our own little pumpkin mono-prints in our art lesson. They looked so good we decided to make some bat prints too. We will wait for the sticky ink to dry, then we will cut some scary facial features and stick them on to our prints.

11W Science

11w made gloop in Science this week. Pupils measured the cornflower and water, chose their favourite colours and used tools to mix the ingredients. We watched it glow under the UV light. It is a non- Newtonian fluid…. it remains solid when you squeeze it, when you let go it is runny. It gives us an opportunity to develop our fine motor skills by clenching and releasing our fists. We watched it drip through the sieve. Pupils also explored other UV reactive materials like the slime we made last week.
