Internet safety day.

We have been discussing the importance of staying safe on the internet. We have discussed a 'recipe' of tips to share with others on how to keep safe using technology including online gaming. The children then enjoyed making their own online 'guide' mascot to remind them and others of the skills they have discussed.

DT-Mechanisms

The children have been learning about what mechanisms are, how they work, what parts are needed and even trying out their own structures.

We have enjoyed our first VR session learning about the water cycle.

Art, craft and design.

We have been investigating the work of Chila Burman and how she uses mixed media the develop her creations. The children have been planning, designing, painting and using collage techniques to create their own mixed media piece.
