Paper making workshop
The year 6 children were luck to have participated in a paper making workshop where they learnt how to make pulp before using a frame to press their paper. A very messy yet very fun activity that put into context the efforts that are required in creating paper.
On No electricity day Pinkery wrote stories for Key Stage 1 children that were about animals in their habitats and we then made bird feeders using apples, lard and cereal! The children then got creative about hanging them around our vast nature friendly site.
In science this term we have been exploring electricity by making series circuits and testing variables to see the effect they had. We then finished off by attempting to make batteries out of potatoes!
This term Pinkery learnt to play Toot Tees, which are flute-like instruments. These were not easy to learn to play and Pinkery class showed resilience when learning with many starting on the easier mouth pieces and progressing on the more challenging ones. All children were successful in playing 'Hot cross buns' with many moving on to 'Mary had a Little Lamb'. A great achievement overall!
