We started our Sculptures and 3D Art unit this week by making sculptures from rolled up paper and card. Our inspiration came from a metal sculpture created by Samantha Stephenson. 
In science, we have been leanring about wild and wonderful creatures. We have been looking at the habitats of different animals and what they need to survive. We have had great fun making rock pool, ocean and mini beast habitats in bottles. We also learnt about the different habitats in the continent of Africa and which animals live in each of the different habitats such as the grasslands, dessert, rivers and mud pools!
In DT, we have been leanring about different fruits and vegetables. We know that all fruits have seeds and that vegetables don't have seeds. We taste tested different fruits and vegetables to find out which ones we would like to use to make a smoothie. We then prepared the fruits and vegetables, blended them and finally enjoyed our smoothies. Some of us enjoyed them more than others!
