Spring Term 2 (2021-2022)

Wednesday 30th March 2022
Today the children made the superhero masks that they had designed. They drew around a template and cut their masks out. Then they used either glue, tape, staples or safety pins to join the masks together. They used a hole punch to made holes on the sides and threaded through some ribbon, elastic or string to go around their heads. Then they got to decorate their masks.

Today the children had a one-off science lesson for British Science Week. They learnt all about the genitoo penguins. I challenged Year 1 to make their own penguin nests using different materials. They worked together in teams to create their nests. Once they had made them I tested them against the wind and rain.
