This term in Maths we have been learning to name and describe 2D and 3D shapes. To help us learn about the faces on 3D shapes we made some printing patterns and spoke about our findings.
As part of Senses and Spices topic we are learning an Indian traditional tale called The Tiger Child. In our lesson we retold the story using puppets and focussed on remembering the main and speaking as a character in role.
For Art and D&T we are excited to be making fabulous Indian style cushions. We researched typical Indian designs using the laptops and then designed our cushions in our Art books. Then we discovered how to create different patterns using string and placed our cushion fabric in dye to change the colour.
