1HL have been working so hard on creating 'fantasy homes'. 

First we had to look at pictures of fantasy homes in D.T. and Literacy, and we talked about who might live there (like a fairy or a wizard), and what the homes were like (gloomy, pretty, tall, tiny).

Next, the children designed a fantasy home then began to make it.

We have been busy ever since, trying to make the perfect home for a fantasy character.

Lastly, we will evaluate out work, so we can think about how we could make it even better if we were to make one again.

The children have been working really hard on their weekly 'Big Write.' There are candles on the tables and calm, classical music playing as they write.

We are starting to practise checking our Big Write work afterwards and trying to correct any mistakes we have made. It's tricky but we are getting there!

When we learnt about shapes in maths, we created models with 3D shapes.  We had to use what we know about the shapes to make the model work: Cubes and cuboids have lots of flat faces so they are good for building. But some shapes like spheres rolled away! Can you explain why?

In Art we have been making lots of sculptures. Can you tell which ones are made of man-made materials and which ones are made of natural materials?

In D.T. we practised using a knife safely by cutting up playdough.  We used our playdough skills from the previous lesson to roll a ball and a sausage shape, then cut it up into pieces. It was quite easy and we are looking forward to cutting real fruit soon!

The children are settling in to their new classroom.
