For the last day of the Autumn term we had an amazing party day! It started with a very intense game of pass the parcel, before moving onto party food and a christmas tree making competition. After lunch, we went to the hall and played party games including musical statues. It ended with a film and even more party food!!
In line with our robots topic, we designed, constructed, painted and decorated our own robots over many weeks. Firstly, we created the shape of our robot out of cardboard and other items. Then, we used paper mache to cover our entire robots. It was a messy process! Then, we used paint or tin foil to cover our robots. Finally, we decorated our robots and added in an electrical circuit to make our robot light up!
For art week we focused on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the American artist Amy Giacomelli. Amy's artwork can be seen at every Disneyland Park in the world as well as many Motion Pictures. Firstly, we painted our backgrounds using a paint wash technique. Then, we drew and painted candy and chocolate designs on our work. Finally, we created a silhouette of Willy Wonka to finish off our designs. We had lots of fun making them!
We really enjoyed learning all about Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, especially when we were able to create our own Wonka chocolate bars. We used either milk or white chocolate and then added a choice of marshmallows, oreos or golden crunch sprinkles, they all looked amazing!
For Roald Dahl day we had a fantastic time making colour changing potions with cabbage water, bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar. We then explored the school grounds collecting seeds, leaves, sticks and feathers to add to their potions alongside sequins and glitter! We then wrote down our instructions for the potions we made!
