Class 3 have had a busy week of poetry writing and French calendar making. Joyeux Noel!
We looked at the toilet twinning project and how important it was to have good sanitation in place in order to stop people from becoming ill. The children realised that this has a huge impact on children’s lives and how being healthy meant they were able to attend school and access an education.
Children thought that it wasn’t fair that parents had to choose between paying medical bills or or school fees. They were intrigued by some of the simple toilet huts that were being constructed in villages and how they were able to use materials available to them.
Class Two have been finding out about different puppets that are used around the world. They have looked carefully at what puppets are made of and how the materials are joined. They have learnt how to use the overstitch and the running stitch to join fabric. Watch this space to see what they will be designing and making!
Our lighthouses are progressing as we used nets to assemble our prototypes. We used our prototypes to think about any alterations or improvements we could make before we construct our final products. We thought about how to make a stable, rigid platform for our lamps to sit on inside the lighthouses. We also drew electric circuits and look forward to testing them out once our models are complete.
