Design and technology- Making a Fruit Kebab or Salad
Our DT project has been to plan, design and create a fruit kebab or salad. We really enjoyed trying and testing different fruits and then making our fruit kebab or salad.
Maths- Number Words
We have been using the Interactive Whiteboard to practise recognising number words. We had to read the word and press on the matching number.
We have been working together to sort objects by colour, size or type. We liked working together to sort objects into groups.
In Science we have been working in groups to sort objects into their materials. We not only needed to use our sorting skills, but team work and our knowledge of materials.

Andy Goldsworthy- Clay Mini Models
The final part of our Andy Goldsworthy art was to put our skills to the test and make the clay mini models that we had planned and practised. This was lots of fun!
