We went on a trip to Cardiff Bay today to start our new topic 'Cardiff Tales'. We looked at all of the significant buildings in the Bay, mapped them and did observational drawings. It was a little rainy but we still had a great time!
We completed another spread the happiness challenge this week- we had a big block of ice with sweets frozen inside it and we had to smash the ice up to get at them! It was hilarious bashing at the ice just for the fun of it, we couldn't stop laughing!
We used our hands to explore four different materials- rice pudding, mud, cornflakes and spaghetti with paint. We then used the app 'Pic Collage' to record adjectives that described each one in pairs or groups.
We have started our journey to becoming witches and wizards at the School of Wizardry this week! Level 1 meant that we had to help the witch to decide what the best ingredients for her potions would be. To do this, we chose different materials to feel with our hands and described them using an adjective. Once we'd done that, we worked with our partner to mix two materials together to create a mixture of our own and see if the texture of the materials changed. We recorded our findings by doing handprints of our chosen materials (including our mixtures at the end!) and writing an adjective underneath each one.
