This half term, the children are looking at a 'cooking' module. This will be linked to their Geography topic about a contrasting city in China, Cheng Du. The children will have the opportunity to taste and cook some chinese food.
The children are learning all about 'Structures' in Design and Technology. The children were given the challenge to build a bridge that would hold the weight of Mr. Snail. The important part of this activity was 'team work'. Each group were given the same resources; a large piece of paper, some dried pasta, dried spaghetti and a roll of sellotape. By the end of the session, the carpet was a sea of pasta! Two out of the five groups managed to create a bridge by the end of the day.
The children worked in pairs using a construction kit to build a pulley. It was difficult but they worked really hard and had some excellent results.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
