As part of our 'Beside the Seaside' theme, the children investigated the history of kite design. They then designed and made their own kites. Selecting the best materials for their designs. The children also used skills such as accurate measuring to mark out the length of the balsar wood for the kite frame.
To celebrate the King's Coronation, the school held a community afternoon tea, Blencathra Class made some cakes to share with our community. We think Ted has a job for the future - he was amazing at icing the cakes. Such concentration and skill!
As part of our theme of 'Every Picture tells a story!', we have been looking at the work of some famous artists. This week we are looking at Claude Monet and his garden at Giverny. We needed to practise our running stitch so we made some beautiful flowers for Monet's garden.
Blencathra's theme was 'Marvellous Me' and we learnt about our senses. In DT, we designed, made and evaluated our own fruit smoothies. They were yummy!
