We enjoyed exploring the controls on the Bee-Bots. We tried to program a whole set of instructions to get to a target. The Bee-Bot didn't always go the way we intended so we worked in teams to debug until we got our program to work successfully.
We went out into the Sensory Garden and looked at the plants, trees and flowers and listened to the wind and the birds. We talked about who created these things and how we might describe the Creator. We hung our ideas up on the trellis.
We have continued to learn about Giuseppe Arcimboldo and his portraits. This afternoon we used pastels to create a bird portrait.
This afternoon we created a portrait using Autumnal flora. We were inspired by the portraits of Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
This afternoon we have been thinking about how we can save energy around school and our homes.
We also did an investigation into the best colour for solar panels. We predicted which colour we thought would be the best. The ice melted quickest on the black card and therefore we thought that black would be the best colour for solar panels.
We have been reading the story of ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?’ in our Talk for Writing lessons. We thought of some very good actions to help us remember the story.
We had a fun day, learning about our senses!
Here are some photos of two of the activities - smelling and hearing!
