Welcome to the Spring Term!

This term our topic is 'Let's Investigate...'

We are starting this term by Investigating Reading. We are looking closely at the company Huntley and Palmers and the impact this had on Reading. We have lots of questions to try to find the answers to!

We are also investigating sources of light, reflections and shadows in science.

Miss Foster has set us with the challenge of designing and creating 6 biscuits with a maximum of 3 flavours. All of the biscuits need to be the same size which also have to be kept fresh inside a homemade biscuit box.

Step 1

Research all the different types of biscuits and packaging that all ready exist.

We shared our likes and dislikes about the taste, size and shape

of different biscuits. Here are some of our thoughts;

"I like the Oero biscuits because they are very chocolatey"

"I like the shape of the Jam'n'cream biscuits"

"The Ginger biscuits have a very boring orange package!"

Vincent van Gogh!

We have enjoyed looking at the famous Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. We have replicated his painting 'Starry night' using cotton ear buds and the opposite ends of a paintbrush. 

We are in the process of putting our paintings on display near our classroom, so watch this space!
