In literacy we were learning about fairy stories. We visited Belfast Castle to see what a real Castle was like.
We also enjoyed finding the cats in the garden.
Our topic this half term is Inventions. The first invention we are looking at is the wheel. We visited The Transport Museum and looked at all different types of wheeled vehicles.
It was such a lovely day that we walked to the part of the museum that has air travel exhibits.
As part of our where I live topic we worked with our student teacher, Ms McBeth, on different art projects. We enjoyed making castles using 2D shapes and then 3D shapes.
We made mud mud huts with clay and choose pictures from our IKEA catalogues to design our own rooms.
Using our scales we weighed out the ingredients for gingerbread men. Miss Seal let us smell the cinnamon, ginger and the dark moscovado sugar. We felt the textures of the flour, sugar and syrup. We sieved, mixed and blended.
Next week we are going to roll out our dough ( don’t worry it’s frozen), cut out the shapes, bake the gingerbread and then decorate! Watch out next week for more photos.
