Autumn Learning

In ‘History’, we began our topic on WW2 by creating boxes, containing things we thought we couldn’t live without, if we were sent away like evacuees.

What would you put in your box?

ART

We explored Henry Moore’s Air-Raid shelter drawings and created 3D models in the style of his art work.

Henry Moore’s Drawings: IMG_5928Shelter Scene: Bunks and Sleepers 1941 Henry Moore OM, CH 1898-1986 Presented by the War Artists Advisory Committee 1946 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/N05711

 

We began by creating 3D figures with paper and masking tape:

Here are some of our 3D figures:

We then painted them in the style of Henry Moore’s line drawings – using stripes.

DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY

We researched rationing during WW2 and in the style of ‘Make-do-and-Mend’ made our own bags using old T-shirts and old material.

We also used rationed food to re-create two WW2 recipes

ELECTRICITY

  • Image result for IMAGE ELECTRICTY

In our science lessons and when learning about ‘Electricity’ and circuits, during the autumn term, we made wire loop games. Year 5 came and played them and then evaluated them for us:

Here are some of our designs:

We experimented making different circuits.  We problem solved when some circuits didn’t work and we then created our designs.

Year 5 came and tested our wire loop games and had lots of fun!

Have a look at our fabulous fairground rides, which we designed, made and evaluated in Science linked with our Electricity unit.

Would you brave our rides?:
