We have had a lovely start to the term with a visit from Aliens!  The alien topic, based on the lovely story Aliens love Underpants, by Claire  Freedman, was great fun and gave us an opportunities for a variety of activities including looking at bossy verbs, using adjectives to describe an alien and instructions on how to get dressed.


We have helped Jack, of Jack and Jill fame, to create a playground to stop him climbing the hill and falling down all the time!!  We used the graphical modelling software package SPEX to design a safe and enjoyable environment for all ages.  The children were able to understand how using a modelling package on a computer enabled them to review and revise their designs.




We will also shortly be constructing our own models of playground equipment in DT.


Our science topic has been to consider what makes us, as humans, the same and different.  We have looked at the work of the artist Picasso and his interpretation of the human face and drawn our own faces in our own individual styles.
