Welcome to our year group page. On this page you will find out what we are learning in school as well as other very useful information
In Squirrels and Badgers we have been learning about bridges as part of our Towers, Turrets and Tunnels topic. We looked at different kinds of bridges from around the world, then investigated how they are built. We built our own truss bridges using gumdrops and cocktail sticks, working collaboratively with our partners to see who could make the strongest bridge.
We had a busy afternoon and lots of fun. Maybe some of us will grow up to be engineers of the future!
Earlier in the year our topic was Bounce! We started our topic work by painting with lots of different sponge balls, dropping, rolling and bouncing them onto paper to investigate the marks they made.
Then we used polystyrene spheres and modelling wire to create sculptures.
Some of us made aliens, some of us made caterpillars and some of us even made the solar system. We had lots of fun.
